Techworld Australia: HTC EVO 3D vs. Samsung Galaxy S 2

Detailed on a dedicated page on the Vodafone Web site, and announced through the Vodafone blog, the Galaxy S II has been made available for pre-order through the telco until 9 June "unless extended".

The pre sale page states that any pre-orders will be delivered "from the end of June", while Vodafone will provide a free Samsung genuine leather case with all orders before this date.

Vodafone will offer the Samsung Galaxy S II on a range of plans, starting at $0 on its $65 infinite plan over 24 months. The plan includes unlimited calls, SMS, MMS and video calls, along with 2GB of data and unlimited access to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, and Foursquare services in Australia.

In addition to the $65 infinite plan, Vodafone will also sell the Galaxy S II for $10 per month on the $45 infinite plan (500MB data) and $0 on the $85 and $100 infinite plans, which include 3GB and 4GB of data, respectively. All infinite plans include unlimited calls, SMS, MMS and video calls within Australia. The Galaxy S II is also available on a range of standard Vodafone cap plans, including $0 on the $79 cap over 24 months. For all online orders, Vodafone will offer $50 credit that will be applied to your third bill.

Vodafone is the second telco to announce its pricing plans for the Galaxy S II, with Optus the first off the block. The Galaxy S II will also be available through Telstra in June, though pricing is yet to be announced. The device is a quad-band 3G smartphone, so it will work across all three network bands used in Australia, including Telstra's 850MHz Next G network.

Samsung officially launched the Galaxy S II in Australia last week, describing it as "the biggest mobile phone launch for Samsung this year."

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
