Detailed on Telstra's official Twitter account, Telstra will be the last telco in Australia to launch the Galaxy S II. The phone originally launched on Optus at the beginning of this month, and was then made available through Vodafone about a week later.

Telstra has not announced its pricing plans for the Galaxy S II, but the nation's largest telco is expected to price the phone higher than both of its rivals. Optus offers the Galaxy S II on a range of plans, starting at $0 on Optus’ $79 cap over 24 months, while Vodafone has the device for $0 on its $65 infinite plan over 24 months.

Samsung officially launched the Galaxy S II in Australia last month and described it as "the biggest mobile phone launch for Samsung this year." The news of the Galaxy S II's imminent launch on Telstra follows the announcement that HTC's flagship smartphone of 2011, the HTC Sensation, will also launch exclusively through Telstra in July.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
