Nokia Australia will provide a 24-month warranty on all mobile phones purchased on or after 31 March, the company announced today.

Previously offering a standard 12-month warranty, the new-24 month manufacturer's warranty applies to all Nokia phones sold in Australia including regular mobile phones, and smartphones.

"We're raising the standards in our handset service by offering a level of protection beyond the 12-month norm", said Nokia's managing director, Chris Carr. "It's of benefit to our consumers and reinforces the confidence we have in the quality of our products."

Although Nokia remains a clear market leader in the low-end of the mobile phone market, the once-dominant Finnish company has recently struggled to produce a high-end smartphone to rival Apple's iPhone and Google Android phones. The company announced last month that it would be dumping its Symbian platform and adopting Windows Phone 7 for future smartphone releases.

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.
