The "glacial silver" HTC One Mini will be available through Telstra from Tuesday 17 September, while Vodafone will exclusively sell the "stealth black" variant from early October.

The One Mini will retail for $480 outright through Telstra, and will also be sold on a range of contract plans.

Telstra's hero offer appears to be a $2 handset repayment on the $60 plan (a total of $62 per month), which includes $600 worth of calls and MMS messages, unlimited SMS messages, and 1GB of data per month, over 24 months.

Telstra will open pre-orders for the handset online from Tuesday, 3 September, and says that the first 500 orders will receive a free Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Bluetooth speaker, valued at $249.

Vodafone hasn't yet announced its pricing or plan details for the handset.

The One Mini is essentially a downsized version of HTC's original One, which launched in Australia earlier this year.

It looks almost identical to its bigger counterpart, boasting the same aluminium design, dual, front-facing speakers, and UltraPixel camera, though the camera doesn't have optical image stabilisation (OIS).

However, the One Mini is significantly smaller in both width and height than the original One.

The One Mini has a 4.3in LCD3 screen with a 720p resolution, runs a dual-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, has 1GB of RAM, and comes with 16GB of internal memory.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
