The Telstra EasyCall 2 mobile phone has extra large buttons, audible key tones, and displays large numbers on the screen in an attempt to make dialling phone numbers as easy as possible.

The Telstra EasyCall 2 also features a quick access switch that activates the built-in speakerphone and dials a preset phone number.

"With big buttons and large numbers on the screen for easy dialling, the EasyCall 2 has audible key tones so you can hear the numbers you are typing and make sure you’re dialling the right number," said Telstra consumer executive director, Rebekah O'Flaherty.

"For instance, flicking the switch activates the speaker phone and dials their preferred phone number, so even if they can't hold the phone up to their ear they can still speak to someone. At the same time, it will send a SMS message to four pre-programmed numbers, so seniors can simultaneously contact friends and family."

Other features of the Telstra EasyCall 2 include a built-in torch, a dedicated keypad lock switch to prevent accidental dialling and an integrated FM radio. The EasyCall 2 is also comparable with T-Coil hearing aids, and is a Blue Tick rated handset, meaning it offers superior coverage in regional and rural areas of Australia.

The Telstra EasyCall 2 is available now for $99, and comes with a Telstra prepaid Next G SIM card and $10 credit to use within a 30 day expiry period.

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.
