<p>SYDNEY, Australia, 10 May 10, 2005. Recently at the CTIA Show in New Orleans, Brightpoint Inc announced a partnership with Microsoft, whereby Brightpoint and Microsoft would jointly market and promote Windows Mobile Platforms. Aligning with this global direction, Brightpoint Australia will focus its efforts solely on Microsoft and Symbian-based connected devices in the future. This will mean that Brightpoint’s current relationship with PalmOne will end 31 May 2005.</p>

This in turn creates the best opportunities for our customers,” said Mr Felix Wong.</p>

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
