Optus is sweetening online pre-orders for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL with an Xbox giveaway.

The first 300 existing Optus customers to preorder the Lumia 950 and 950 XL online will receive an Xbox One console valued at $499. It will have a 1TB hard drive and come with FIFA 16.

The Singtel-owned carrier is alone in offering Microsoft’s Windows 10 mobiles on postpaid contracts, as reported earlier by PCWorld. Vodafone will not offer the smartphones and Telstra has yet to comment.

Both smartphones are being offered on Optus’ $80 My Plan over 24 month contracts. The 5.2-inch Lumia 950 is free over the life of the contract, while the 5.7-inch 950 XL is an additional $4 per month.

Bonus data is available to customers who pre-order the smartphones on the Optus $80 My Plan, pushing the quota up from 6GB to 8GB per month.

Online pre-orders for the two smartphones open today, 30 November, while the smartphones will be available in stores on 7 December.

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
