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.

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.

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.
