The "glacial silver" HTC One Mini will be available through Telstra from Tuesday 17 September, while Vodafone will exclusively sell the "stealth black" variant from early October.

The One Mini will retail for $480 outright through Telstra, and will also be sold on a range of contract plans.

Telstra's hero offer appears to be a $2 handset repayment on the $60 plan (a total of $62 per month), which includes $600 worth of calls and MMS messages, unlimited SMS messages, and 1GB of data per month, over 24 months.

Telstra will open pre-orders for the handset online from Tuesday, 3 September, and says that the first 500 orders will receive a free Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Bluetooth speaker, valued at $249.

Vodafone hasn't yet announced its pricing or plan details for the handset.

The One Mini is essentially a downsized version of HTC's original One, which launched in Australia earlier this year.

It looks almost identical to its bigger counterpart, boasting the same aluminium design, dual, front-facing speakers, and UltraPixel camera, though the camera doesn't have optical image stabilisation (OIS).

However, the One Mini is significantly smaller in both width and height than the original One.

The One Mini has a 4.3in LCD3 screen with a 720p resolution, runs a dual-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, has 1GB of RAM, and comes with 16GB of internal memory.

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


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.

Taylor Carr


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.
