Samsung's flagship tablet and 4GB of Internet from $42 a month

Welcome to the post-PC era

Vodafone is offering Samsung’s 2015 flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S2, on its 24 month wireless broadband plans as of today.

The telco is selling the 9.7-inch and the 8-inch version of Samsung’s 4G tablets on its 4GB wireless broadband plan. Pricing is a respective $54 and $42 per month over a two year contract.

Vodafone’s largest mobile broadband plan comes with a 50GB monthly allowance and is priced at $140. The 8-inch tablet is free over the life of the 24 month contract, although the 9.7-inch model is an additional cost of $12 a month.

Samsung’s flagship Tab S2 tablets went on sale in Australia last week. The slates will be compatible with Vodafone’s Cat4 LTE network, which has a theoretical maximum speed of 150Mbps.

Specifications of the two tablets are largely shared in spite of the screen size. Both tablets have a 2048x1536 resolution, use an sAMOLED panel, are powered by Samsung’s octa-core Exynos 533 chipset and have 32GB of internal storage.

The battery in the 9.7-inch, 4G variant managed to loop a video for 10-and-a-half hours during a test undertaken in our full review.

Outright retail pricing for the larger tablet is $749, while the similarly equipped 8-inch model costs $100 less at $649.

Following is Vodafone's plan matrix for the Galaxy Tab S2 as per the official press release.

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.

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.
