Vodafone prices HTC's new One Mini, debuts "faster" Samsung Galaxy S4

Pre-orders opened for HTC One Mini, Cat 4 LTE Galaxy S4 available now

Vodafone has announced pricing plans and opened pre-orders for the HTC One Mini smartphone, and has also released of a new version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 with Cat 4 LTE.

The HTC One Mini will be available on a total of seven 24 month plans, and three 12 month plans. The hero offer appears to be no monthly handset repayments on Vodafone's $65 'Red' plan, which includes unlimited calls, SMS and MMS messages and 1.5GB of data per month for $65.

The One Mini is also available on Vodafone's $50 and $60 non-Red plans with no monthly handset repayments, and can be paired with the 12 month $100 Red plan for no extra cost.

In addition to the One Mini, Vodafone will also sell a new version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone with Cat 4 LTE from today.

The LTE Category 4 mobile data standard is the newest and fastest class of 4G and will handle download speeds up to a theoretical maximum of 150Mbps.

Current 4G devices can only handle 100Mbps, over LTE Category 3.

Vodafone's general manager of devices, Katie Turkal, said the Samsung Galaxy S4 with 4G Cat 4 smartphone will allow Vodafone customers to access LTE Category 4 network speeds in various parts of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

"We’re pleased to be able to offer our customers these two new impressive smartphones on our lightning-fast 4G network."

"The HTC One mini and the Samsung Galaxy S4 with 4G Cat 4 are very welcome additions to our range because both allow our customers to access superfast data speeds."

"Not only do we have the fastest 4G data speeds across parts of Sydney and Melbourne, we are proud to introduce the very first Cat 4 smartphone on our network".

The Galaxy S4 with 4G Cat 4 is available for $5 a month on Vodafone's $65 'Red' plan, but won't attract a monthly handset repayment on the $80 and $100 Red plans.

The HTC One Mini is available to pre-order through Vodafone's Web site from today, while the Samsung Galaxy S4 with 4G Cat 4 is on sale now through Vodafone stores, Vodafone's e-Store and Vodafone's call centre.

A full list of 12 and 24-month postpaid plans for both the One Mini and the Galaxy S4 with 4G Cat 4 are available below.

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.
