The telco announced today that the Lumia 925 will be available on a total of four plans, all over 24 months. Plans range from the $50 Optus My Plan with $8 handset repayment (totalling $58 per month), to the top $100 My Plan.

Optus appears to be heavily pushing the $60 My Plan with the Lumia 925. This plan includes 600 minutes of standard national voice calls, unlimited standard SMS and MMS messages to Australian mobiles and 1GB of data per month.

Optus will also sell the Lumia 925 outright for $624, a saving of $75 over Nokia's official recommended retail price of $699.

The outright pricing is identical to Telstra, who announced its pricing plans for the Lumia 925 earlier this month.

Optus says it will aim to deliver the Lumia 925 to customers in metropolitan areas from Thursday, 1 August, though consumers in regional areas will have to wait up to a day later and the dates "are subject to change".

"Pre-order ends 31 July 2013, or earlier if expected stock allocation is exhausted."

"For customers who pre-order by 29 July 2013, Optus aims to deliver the Nokia Lumia 925 from 1st August 2013 in Metropolitan areas and from 2 August 2013 in Regional areas."

"Delivery dates shown on this page are estimates only and are subject to change. In the meantime, cancellation fees may apply for your chosen rate plan."

Nokia announced the Australian launch of the Lumia 925 in the first week of July. In addition to availability through Optus and Telstra, the Windows Phone 8 device is currently sold through retailers Allphones, Dick Smith, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Network Communications, Fone Zone and Leading Edge.

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

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.
