Pre-orders opened for HTC One Mini, Cat 4 LTE Galaxy S4 available now

Vodafone has announced pricing plans and opened pre-orders for the HTC One Mini smartphone, and has also released of a new version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 with Cat 4 LTE.

The HTC One Mini will be available on a total of seven 24 month plans, and three 12 month plans. The hero offer appears to be no monthly handset repayments on Vodafone's $65 'Red' plan, which includes unlimited calls, SMS and MMS messages and 1.5GB of data per month for $65.

The One Mini is also available on Vodafone's $50 and $60 non-Red plans with no monthly handset repayments, and can be paired with the 12 month $100 Red plan for no extra cost.

In addition to the One Mini, Vodafone will also sell a new version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone with Cat 4 LTE from today.

The LTE Category 4 mobile data standard is the newest and fastest class of 4G and will handle download speeds up to a theoretical maximum of 150Mbps.

Vodafone's general manager of devices, Katie Turkal, said the Samsung Galaxy S4 with 4G Cat 4 smartphone will allow Vodafone customers to access LTE Category 4 network speeds in various parts of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

"We’re pleased to be able to offer our customers these two new impressive smartphones on our lightning-fast 4G network."

"The HTC One mini and the Samsung Galaxy S4 with 4G Cat 4 are very welcome additions to our range because both allow our customers to access superfast data speeds."

"Not only do we have the fastest 4G data speeds across parts of Sydney and Melbourne, we are proud to introduce the very first Cat 4 smartphone on our network".

The Galaxy S4 with 4G Cat 4 is available for $5 a month on Vodafone's $65 'Red' plan, but won't attract a monthly handset repayment on the $80 and $100 Red plans.

The HTC One Mini is available to pre-order through Vodafone's Web site from today, while the Samsung Galaxy S4 with 4G Cat 4 is on sale now through Vodafone stores, Vodafone's e-Store and Vodafone's call centre.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
