How to buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia

Vodafone will sell the 3G version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 on 10 plans in total — five on a 12 month contract and five on a 24 month contract, with the minimum monthly spend starting at $39 on a 24 month plan, and $65 on a 12 month plan.

The company is encouraging consumers to place their orders before the 16th of December to guarantee pre-Christmas delivery.

"Some things are just worth waiting for and the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 doesn't disappoint," said Ross Parker, Vodafone's general manager of devices and pricing. "At just $39 a month, on a 24 month contract, including data, it's also the right price. We're pleased to be bringing it to Vodafone just in time for Christmas."

Earlier today, Samsung won the right to officially sell the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia following a lengthy legal battle with Apple.

The two companies have been battling it out in court since October, with Apple claiming that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 copied its iPad 2 tablet and breached various patents. The Federal Court initially granted Apple a temporary injunction which meant that Samsung could not sell, advertise, or even take pre-orders, but the case has now been resolved.

Samsung has already confirmed that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available from "leading Australian retailers" including Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys, Myer, Bing Lee and Officeworks. A Wi-Fi only 16GB version of the tablet will sell for $579 ourright, while a 3G variant of the same model will sell for $729.

Vodafone's full pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is as follows:

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.

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.
