Vodafone has today opened up pre-orders for the hotly-anticipated Sony PlayStation Vita portable gaming console, ahead of its Australian launch on Friday 23 February.

The telco announced this afternoon that the handheld gaming device will be available to pre-order from the Vodafone website from 3.30pm.

Vodafone is offering the 3G version of the PlayStation Vita via two options. It will sell the console on a 12-month postpaid deal for $55 per month, which includes 1.5GB of data per month. It will also offer the Vita for $419 up front on pre-paid, with 200MB of data. Both postpaid and pre-paid options include a bonus 4GB memory card.

In addition to the $55 per month postpaid deal, Vodafone will also sell the PS Vita on a further four 12 month plans: $65, $75, $84 and $95 plans with 6, 12, 14 and 18GB of data per month, respectively.

"Our partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Australia presents us with a unique opportunity to make the move into the exciting world of mobile gaming," said Ross Parker, general manager of devices at Vodafone Australia. "Our customers have told us they can’t wait to get their hands on this device, and we echo their enthusiasm and look forward to the arrival of PlayStation Vita in Australia later this month."

The PlayStation Vita is the successor to Sony's popular PlayStation Portable console and first launched in Japan in December. The gaming device features two analog sticks, a 5-inch OLED touchscreen and comes standard with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, along with the option of 3G connectivity.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
