The 4G device will be sold through Telstra from Tuesday, 30 July, and Optus from Thursday, 1 August. Neither telco has announced any pricing or plan details, but Nokia says the Lumia 925 will retail for $699 outright.

Nokia Australia’s managing director, Steve Lewis, said interest in the Lumia 925 has been encouraging.

"The Lumia 925 is undoubtedly Nokia’s best smartphone yet and we’re hugely encouraged by the interest in this device from our partners and consumers."

"I believe that Nokia has reinforced its reputation as a major player in smartphone imaging, design and mapping and the Lumia 925 exemplifies the developments Nokia has made in these areas."

In addition to being sold through Telstra and Optus, Nokia will also sell the Lumia 925 through a number of retailers from Wednesday, 17 July.

Nokia's confirmed list of stockists includes Allphones, Dick Smith, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Network Communications, Fone Zone and Leading Edge.

The Lumia 925 is seemingly a direct response to criticism of the flagship Lumia 920. It has many of the same features of its predecessor, but is thinner, lighter and uses an aluminum frame.

The Lumia 925 is the first Nokia phone to come preloaded with the company's Smart Camera app.

The apps includes the Smart Camera function, which takes ten shots in a short burst at a resolution of 5-megapixels and stores all ten, 'Best Shot', which automatically finds the sharpest picture from this set, and 'Action Shot', which highlights motion and brings together each picture.

The Lumia 925 is capable of wireless charging, but only with an optional wireless charging cover which clips to the back of the phone.

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.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

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.
