The "glacial silver" HTC One Mini will be available through Telstra from Tuesday 17 September, while Vodafone will exclusively sell the "stealth black" variant from early October.

The One Mini will retail for $480 outright through Telstra, and will also be sold on a range of contract plans.

Telstra's hero offer appears to be a $2 handset repayment on the $60 plan (a total of $62 per month), which includes $600 worth of calls and MMS messages, unlimited SMS messages, and 1GB of data per month, over 24 months.

Telstra will open pre-orders for the handset online from Tuesday, 3 September, and says that the first 500 orders will receive a free Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Bluetooth speaker, valued at $249.

Vodafone hasn't yet announced its pricing or plan details for the handset.

The One Mini is essentially a downsized version of HTC's original One, which launched in Australia earlier this year.

It looks almost identical to its bigger counterpart, boasting the same aluminium design, dual, front-facing speakers, and UltraPixel camera, though the camera doesn't have optical image stabilisation (OIS).

However, the One Mini is significantly smaller in both width and height than the original One.

The One Mini has a 4.3in LCD3 screen with a 720p resolution, runs a dual-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, has 1GB of RAM, and comes with 16GB of internal memory.

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.
