Optus has finally announced its pricing plans for Apple's new iPad Air tablet, with the telco offering the new tablet on both 12 and 24 month contracts.

The telco will sell all four models of the iPad Air on a selection of four plans from today, with the ability to choose between 12 or 24 month contracts.

Plans range from an entry level 1GB per month option, to a top plan which offers 10GB per data.

The 16GB iPad Air starts at $50 per month for 1GB of data (a total of $1200 over 24 months), while the top of the range 128GB iPad Air paired with Optus' largest 10GB plan will cost a hefty $101 per month (a total of $2424 over 24 months).

On a 12 month plan, those prices jump to $80 (a total of $960) and $142 (a total of $1742), respectively.

Unlike Telstra, Optus will not sell the iPad Air outright through its stores. Instead, the telco offers the device on month-to-month plans with no contract. It will charge an up front device payment in the first month, depending on the plan selected.

The iPad Air officially went on sale in Australia today and is also sold by Telstra and Vodafone on contract plans.

Optus' full pricing for the new iPad Air can be viewed on its Web site.

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
