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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
