Australian Idols sing Telstra's 3G tune

Telstra is hoping that Australian Idol stars will help attract the masses to its new consumer 3G mobile deals, which it launched today.

The service will enable customers to watch National Nine and Sky news video news clips, view more than 200 i-mode content sites, play online games, send and receive email from Yahoo and Bigpond sites; and use ebay.

Telstra's Head of Pioneers Marketing, Mike Robey, said in a statement that the new Australian Idol video diaries would be added to the site as they became available.

Customers have a choice of four new handsets which are the Motorola V975, Samsung Z500, Sony Ericsson K600i or the i-mode NEC N600i.

Customers who buy a 3G handset on a repayment option can take up the $49 and $79 cap plan with a $5 per month Mobile Surf and Email Pack and get up to $250 or $550 worth of standard voice calls, as well as MessageBank, and text messages. Both capped plans offer a two-month introductory free video call offer.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
