Audio accessories company Jabra has today announced that its durable Solemate portable Bluetooth speaker will be available in Australia next month.

The Jabra Solemate is a shock, dust, sweat and splash resistant portable Bluetooth speaker. With a width of just 64mm, the company says the Solemate's size and weight is comparable to a 500ml bottle of water.

"The Jabra Solemate is built to travel, so users can enjoy music in places they may normally not like to take their technology, such as the beach, being around food and drinks or in their gym bag," said Jabra’s regional sales manager, Karen Powell. "It also comes with a specially designed, durable sound bag."

The Solemate includes a standard 3.5mm audio jack in addition to Bluetooth connectivity.

The Jabra Solemate allows up to eight Bluetooth devices to be connected to it including smartphones, tablets and Bluetooth equipped portable music players. It also features a standard 3.5mm audio cable connection for non Bluetooth devices.

Jabra says the Solemate's internal battery will last for up to eight hours of continuous play back before needing a recharge. A built-in speakerphone function means the device can be used to handle voice calls if connected to a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone or smartphone.

The Solemate will go on sale from Monday 1 October through JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Telstra stores across the country for $199.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

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.

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.
