Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

blakamin: My nexus 7 3g doesn't have a dialer or a message app.. Probably because it's a tablet and not a phone.

I don't know will have a look
Yeah it can work but not through the sim obliviously its not free like they infer, what is?

Because an iPhone 5 costs $1049, an iPad mini costs $680.
Why would they destroy their market for phones?
an ipad mini sized phone (with separate headset) would give them something exciting to compete against the likes of the Note's and other large screen androids.
I'm no techo but I suspect it doesn't have GSM radio and possibly some other bits it might need to operate as a full functioning phone so by the time this hardware is added,the price point could easily push beyond ip5 so moot point, the existing mini doesn't seem to be able to dully function as a phone anyway
