Vodafone announces iPhone 3G pricing for Australia

Handset to launch 11 July

Vodafone Australia today announced their range of plans for the iPhone 3G, which will be launched on 11 July.

The plans were published on July 9, but were then removed from Vodafone's Web site less than 20 minutes later. The plans unveiled today are largely the same, with the option of paying the handset off monthly the only change from the original plans.

"The iPhone 3G is designed for customers who want to download mobile music and entertainment, as well as enjoy mobile email, so we've created caps that realistically cater for that type of data usage", said Russell Hewitt, CEO of Vodafone Australia. "Vodafone is being straight-up with customers by telling them exactly what's included within our iPhone 3G caps and how much it costs."

The cheapest Vodafone iPhone plan is $69 per month, with an additional monthly cost of $12.88 for the 16GB iPhone 3G, as well as an up-front cost of $309. This plan includes $310 worth of calls and text, but only 250MB of data.

Optus and Telstra have already announced their iPhone packages.

Vodafone will begin inviting pre-registered customers to sign on to a 24-month contract and purchase an iPhone 3G from a reserved allocation of stock. "Pre-registration demand for the iPhone 3G has been incredible", said Hewitt.

Full pricing details including up-front costs and monthly handset repayments are available at http://www.vodafone.com.au/iphone.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
