Vodafone has unveiled pricing details for the new iPhone 3G S and will offer the handset to prepaid customers for the first time.

The existing 8GB iPhone 3G will cost $759 up-front on a prepaid plan, while you'll pay $929 up-front for the 16GB iPhone 3G S and $1129 for the flagship 32GB model.

For post-paid customers, Vodafone will offer the 16GB iPhone 3G S free on its $69 iPhone Cap over 24 months. The plan includes $400 worth of calls, text and MMS, unlimited free Vodafone-to-Vodafone calls during the evening and on weekends, and 1GB of data.

The flagship 32GB iPhone 3G S will be free on a $114 cap over 24 months, which includes unlimited calls, text, MMS and voicemail and 2GB of data.

Unlike Optus, Vodafone will not be charging its iPhone customers a monthly access fee to use Internet tethering, but the telco has provided the option to purchase additional data for tethering — 1GB will cost $24.95 and 2GB will cost $29.95 (both offers will be available from August).

Vodafone only offers the iPhone on 24-month contracts (Optus has a 12-month option on most plans), but it is currently the only Australian telco to offer Visual Voicemail. Post-paid customers who purchase the iPhone 3G S online before 30 June 2009 will also receive a bonus $100 credit, while prepaid customers purchasing the iPhone before 31 August will receive a bonus $500 flexible credit.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

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.

MSI GT76

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

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

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

MSI PS63

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.
