The telco had previously confirmed that the BlackBerry Z10 would be available in stores from today and announced pricing details last week.

The Z10 is sold on Telstra's $60, $80 and $100 plans, as well as the $130 'Unlimited' plan. Handset repayments are required on the $60 plan but avoided on the $80 and $100 plans, and the $130 unlimited plan.

The hero plan appears to be a $7 monthly handset repayment on the $60 Telstra plan over 24 months ($67 per month), making it $1 more expensive than Optus' $60 plan for the Z10.

This Telstra plan includes $600 worth of calls and MMS messages, unlimited SMS messages and 1GB of data per month.

In addition to consumer plans, Telstra will also sell the BlackBerry Z10 on a range of business plans.

Telstra will sell both black and white variants of the BlackBerry Z10, with the white variant available exclusively through the telco until Wednesday 26 June.

The Z10 is the first smartphone to be released under the reinvented BlackBerry brand. The Canadian giant announced in January that it was rebranding its company name from Research In Motion (RIM) to a single "BlackBerry" brand.

It is also the first device to use the new BlackBerry 10 operating system, which the company says has been completely revamped from the ground up. The software utilises a combination of gestures to navigate around the interface with no physical back or home buttons.

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.
