Telstra and Nokia don't ring true

According to a news report published today, Telstra WAP product manager Mark Whitmore admitted that the carrier has been experiencing connectivity problems between its Wireless Application Protocol server and all Nokia 7110 WAP handsets.

The Nokia 7110 is Australia's highest-selling WAP-enabled mobile.

However, Telstra MobileNet and Nokia customer service operators told IDG yesterday there had been no operational problems reported with the telco's WAP venture.

It is not known how long Telstra has been aware of the interoperability problems, but the telco's estimated 4000 WAP customers have still not been notified of any faults.

The glitch is understood to be caused by interoperability problems between the externally manufactured browser within the Nokia 7110 handset and Telstra's WAP server.

Telstra is expected to send instructions to its WAP users via SMS text message to contact local phone resellers to get upgraded, compatible browser software.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
