    Hi Guys can anyone recommend a good 'offline' translator app.

    There are some good online apps that need the web to translate, but i was looking for one that was offline for traveling.

    Need to translate Chinese <-> English.

    Thanks.

    Walked into the Network Communications store we use and picked up a 2-in-1 sim on the spot (connected to my number). Guy said I could keep it regardless if I get an iphone 4 or not...

    With a week to go, seems like all service providers are really leaving it to the last moment. This has me worried about stock levels.

    Sorting out accessories in anticipation of the new phone. Has anyone seen a bendy-arm car charger such as this without the FM transmitter functionality?

    So its the Monday of the presumed iPhone 4 launch week and still no word of plans or pre-orders from telecos. Any comments/thoughts?

    (Yes i know its 7:30 am, but come on. How late do they want to leave it?)

    Looks like Optus is ahead of everyone else again:

    A friend of mine just recieved an email from optus.

    "Hi ,

    We’re celebrating the arrival of the new Apple iPhone 4 with fantastic VIP launch events. Selected stores will be opening from MIDNIGHT on 29 July 2010 (we do mean 11:59pm plus 1 minute on Thursday) for your chance to get your hands on the new Apple iPhone 4 before everyone else.

    Plus there’ll be celebrity appearances, giveaways and much more – in fact the 1st 50 Optus customers in the Sydney line will get an extra surprise. This is one party you won’t want to miss.

    We need to make sure there are enough Apple iPhone 4’s to go around, so if you’d like to come along to be first to own the Apple iPhone 4, you must register.

    Optus stores opening from midnight

    Sydney – Optus ‘Yes’ Shop George Street
    Brisbane - Optus ‘Yes’ Shop Queen Street
    Melbourne - Optus ‘Yes’ Shop Bourke Street
    Perth – Optus ‘Yes’ Shop Murray Street

    Make sure you open the emails we send as there is more exciting news coming soon!

    Cheers,
    The Optus Team"


    I wish i was with Optus, becuase they are doing alot better than other telco companies :(

    I just got that email too.
    I'm in Melbourne so didn't get the extra surprise bit added in.
    Also the link in the email to register doesn't work!

    According to the Apple site, they will launch the phone at 8am.. so maybe Optus will make you party from midnight til 8am to get it haha.

    Optus is starting to use 900 for metro infill as well, i.e. additional capacity in metro areas.

    They leave them to the last minute as hopefully one company jumps the gun and another can adjust their pricing.

    Any leaks on outright pricing yet? Im thinking it will be the better way to go, as i get an allowance for a PDA as well as being able to salary sacrifice it.

    Cant do it as part of a contract though for various reasons...

    Is anyone going to bother waiting for the white 4G at the end of the year? I don't think I'll be able to and might just jump straight to the black one at the end of the month.
