Vodafone has today opened up pre-orders for the hotly-anticipated Sony PlayStation Vita portable gaming console, ahead of its Australian launch on Friday 23 February.

The telco announced this afternoon that the handheld gaming device will be available to pre-order from the Vodafone website from 3.30pm.

Vodafone is offering the 3G version of the PlayStation Vita via two options. It will sell the console on a 12-month postpaid deal for $55 per month, which includes 1.5GB of data per month. It will also offer the Vita for $419 up front on pre-paid, with 200MB of data. Both postpaid and pre-paid options include a bonus 4GB memory card.

In addition to the $55 per month postpaid deal, Vodafone will also sell the PS Vita on a further four 12 month plans: $65, $75, $84 and $95 plans with 6, 12, 14 and 18GB of data per month, respectively.

"Our partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Australia presents us with a unique opportunity to make the move into the exciting world of mobile gaming," said Ross Parker, general manager of devices at Vodafone Australia. "Our customers have told us they can’t wait to get their hands on this device, and we echo their enthusiasm and look forward to the arrival of PlayStation Vita in Australia later this month."

The PlayStation Vita is the successor to Sony's popular PlayStation Portable console and first launched in Japan in December. The gaming device features two analog sticks, a 5-inch OLED touchscreen and comes standard with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, along with the option of 3G connectivity.

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.
