Vodafone today announced that its latest tablet device, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v, has been delayed until May 4 in Australia.

Read our comprehensive Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 review, and see how it stacks up against the iPad 2 in our Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v vs Apple iPad 2 tablet showdown.

Initially set to be available from "mid-April", the Galaxy Tab 10.1v will now launch in selected Vodafone stores and online from 4 May. In addition, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v will be available for pre-sale exclusively to Vodafone customers from 20 April, for delivery in the week commencing 1 May. Vodafone customers who pre-order the Galaxy Tab 10.1v will also receive a genuine Samsung case for the device.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb, which has specifically been designed for tablet devices. The software doesn't come with any UI overlays and is instead a "vanilla" version of the Honeycomb OS. Key features of Android 3.0 Honeycomb include tabbed Web browsing, support for 3D graphics, added enterprise features like encrypted storage, a redesigned keyboard, and completely redesigned interface that aims to take advantage of the larger tablet screen.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v Android tablet also features a rear 8-megapixel rear camera that doubles as a 1080p HD video recorder, a 2-megapixel front camera for video calls, and dual-speakers. The Galaxy Tab 10.1v is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor, has 1GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, but there is no microSD card slot for extra storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v will be available for a limited time only. The device will cost $729 as an outright purchase which includes 6GB data with a three month expiry. It is also available for $259 upfront on a range of 12 month plans, and $0 upfront on various 24 month plans. For more details on these plans, visit Vodafone's website.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.
