The company announced today on its Australian blog that the tablet is officially available online.

The online launch comes almost three weeks after the tablet officially went on sale through selected Australian retail stores including JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Dick Smith.

The 16GB Wi-Fi model of the new Nexus 7 sells for $299, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model is available for $339, a price hike of $50 and $40, respectively, compared to the original Nexus 7.

Google also sells a 32GB Wi-Fi+LTE version of the Nexus 7 for $439. All three models have a listed dispatch time of between 1-2 days and include free shipping for a "limited time".

The online launch of the new Nexus 7 in Australia comes almost two months after Google officially unveiled the device globally.

While it retains the same name as its predecessor, the new 7in tablet features a slightly different design and has a host of upgraded specifications, headed by a full HD display.

The tablet is also 2mm thinner than its predecessor (8.65mm), weighs 50g lighter (290g) and includes a 5-megapixel rear-camera, a feature that wasn't present on the original model.

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.
