The telco will sell the 'Jet Black' and 'Classic White' variants of the Galaxy Note 3 on a number of its My Plans from Thursday, 3 October.

The hero offer appears to be a $10 monthly handset repayment on the $80 My Plan (a total of $90 per month) over 24 months. The plan includes 800 minutes of voice calls, unlimited SMS and MMS messages and 2GB of data per month.

Unlike Vodafone, however, Optus will not bundle Samsung's new Galaxy Gear smartwatch with any of its Galaxy Note 3 plans.

The Galaxy Gear smartwatch is a "companion device" that will initially only work with the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone, and the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition tablet.

In addition to contract plan sales, Optus also confirmed it will sell the Galaxy Note 3 outright for $949, a saving of $50 over Samsung's official outright price.

Optus' full range of plans for the Galaxy Note 3 can be viewed below.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

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