Telstra will sell all three models of iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G connectivity — 16GB, 32GB and 64GB — on a range of two-year plans and also on a range of pre-paid plans. The telco will not offer the iPad 2 on shorter, 12 month plans.

"With Australians adopting mobile tablets in record numbers, Telstra is delighted to make the iPad 2 available to purchase from select Telstra Stores around Australia," said Anthea Roberts, Telstra's director of mobile broadband.

"Our customers will be able to buy iPad 2 on a plan that includes no upfront fee, a generous monthly data allowance and which allows them to pay the device off over 24 months. Customers will also be able to purchase iPad 2 outright and team it with one of our popular iPad Pre-Paid options that allows them to top up data as they need."

Telstra will sell the iPad 2 on four 24 month contract plans, with monthly pricing varying between models. The 16GB iPad 2 will be available for $0 up front on $49, $59, $69 and $99 plans that include 1GB, 4GB, 8GB and 15GB of data per month, respectively.

Jumping up to the 32GB iPad 2 retains the $0 upfront costs but slightly increases the monthly plan costs: $54, $64, $74 and $104 per month with the same data allocations.

Finally, the 64GB iPad 2 through Telstra introduces an upfront cost in addition to increasing the monthly plan costs. A $24 upfront payment is required on all four plans with this model: $57, $67, $77 and $107 per month, once again with the same data allocations.

Telstra will sell the iPad 2 at "selected" Telstra shops and through all Telstra Business Centres, over the phone on on Telstra's online shop from next Tuesday.

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.
