Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) has announced today that its Vodafone and 3 Australian mobile networks will provide unlimited standard national voice calls network to network on the latest cap plans.

Coming into effect on 11 March 2010, the Vodafone and 3 unlimited call offer is included on all new caps starting at $29 per month and above, and the offer does not have a fair use policy. The unlimited call offer applies on calls made to and from 3 customers on the 3 network, and between Vodafone customers on the Vodafone network, but doesn't include calls made between Vodafone and 3 or vice versa.

VHA has also included international voice calls and texts as part of the included value of each cap and it provides an option for unlimited BlackBerry Internet and e-mail on any data inclusions.

"These caps offer endless, same network standard national voice calls, and what separates us from our competitors is the fact that our customers don’t need to exhaust their monthly cap value before reaping the benefits of unlimited same network standard national voice calls," said Edward Goff, General Manager of Voice and Broadband, VHA.

"Vodafone and 3 customers will immediately benefit from endless same network standard national voice calls from the very first call they make."

As part of the new caps, both Vodafone and 3 are offering 50MB of included data with $49 cap plans and will offer all new caps on both 24 and 12 month contracts. The launch also includes three new SIM-only month-to-month contracts — $20 (50MB of data), $35 (250MB) and $55 (500MB) respectively.

Goff said current Vodafone and 3 customers under contract can switch to one of the new cap plans without paying a fee to change plans.

New mobile phones that will benefit from the cap plans include Nokia's new N97 mini smartphone, Sony Ericsson's first Android smartphone, the XPERIA X10 and LG's new flagship Mini (GD880). The N97 mini is available now, while the XPERIA X10 and LG Mini are set to launch in Q2, with no firm date set down for either handset.

VHA will also launch Samsung's flagship Wave smartphone, the first mobile phone to run Samsung's new Bada operating system. The launch of the wave in late Q2 should also coincide with the Australian launch of the Samsung Bada app store.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.
