3 slashes iPhone pricing

3 lowers pricing on iPhone plans just one day before launch

Australian telco 3 has reduced the price of its iPhone plans after just three days. The move comes just one day before the smartphone is set to launch on its network.

3 was the only Australian telco not to offer the iPhone 3G. It announced in June that it will be selling the iPhone 3GS and unveiled its original pricing plans on 13 July.

The company slashed monthly repayment prices on almost all plans. It will also offer the older iPhone 3G for free on a $49 cap.

3's 'hero' offer remains the same — the 16GB iPhone 3GS is free on a $79 cap plan over 24 months. This plan provides $650 worth of calls and text, 1GB of data and $350 worth of calls to anyone on 3.

The 16GB iPhone 3GS is also available on $39 and $49 caps with monthly handset repayments of $10 and $5 respectively (down from $18 and $14). The 32GB iPhone 3GS is available on the $39, $49 and $79 caps, with monthly handset repayments of $14, $10 and $5 (down from $24, $18 and $10).

For heavy users, $110 per month will give you 3000 minutes worth of calls, 500 SMS or MMS messages and 3GB of data per month. On this plan, the 16GB iPhone 3GS is free and the 32GB model is $5 per month.

The iPhone 3GS and 3G will be available tomorrow through 3 stores and online at 3's Web site. Visit 3's's iPhone Pricing Web page for full details.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

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.
