Telstra will offer the latest iPhone 3G S on a range of Next G cap plans.

Telstra will offer the latest iPhone 3G S on a range of Next G cap plans.

Telstra, the last of the big three carriers to unveil pricing, has finally unveiled its iPhone 3G S plans, just hours before the official release of Apple's latest smartphone in Australia.

Telstra's launch was a far cry from Optus who revealed its plans four days earlier and also had a midnight launch at many stores across the Australia. Vodafone also announced its pricing plans two days earlier than Telstra.

The big news from the Telstra camp is the introduction of Telstra iPhone cap plans for the first time. The iPhone 3GS will also be available on the current iPhone plans and Telstra's phone plan ultimate.

Telstra's hero offer is the 32GB or 16 GB iPhone 3GS for $0 over 24 months on a $150 phone plan ultimate. The ultimate plan provides 2000 minutes of standard voice calls, 2000 text messages in Australia and 150MB of data per month.

On the Next G cap plans, consumers have to add a data pack to their monthly cost. Packs start at $5 for 5MB of data all the way up to $119 for 9GB of data. Telstra has yet to confirm if it will charge extra for Internet tethering, but this us unlikely — customers should be able to simply add on one of the data packs. Earlier in the week, Optus revealed that it will charge $9.99 per month for customers who wish to unlock tethering capabilities.

Telstra has also reduced upfront prices for the existing 8GB iPhone 3G. The existing handset is $0 on a $60 plan, $99 on a $40 plan and $199 on a $30 plan, all with 24 month contracts.

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
