Sony’s flagship Xperia Z2 goes on sale in Australia today

Optus, Vodafone and Telstra will sell the waterproof smartphone.

Sony's answer to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) has quietly arrived. The company announced its Xperia Z2 will go on sale with the big three Australian carriers.

Currently Optus is the only carrier stocking the smartphone on shelves at the time of writing. The carrier is offering the smartphone at $16 per month on its $60 plan for 24 months. Customers who buy the smartphone from Optus before the 31 July will get a free pair of adidas training shoes valued at $190.

Vodafone will shortly follow by selling the smartphone on the 7 May for $10 per month on its $65 plan over 24 months.

Telstra will sell the Z2 at an undisclosed later date and is currently taking preorders.

Sony unveiled the Xperia Z2 at the Mobile World Congress in late February. The 5.2in smartphone runs Android 4.4, features a 2.3GHz quad core CPU, is waterproof to 1.5m for 30 minutes and has a 20.7MP camera capable of recording UHD videos.

The Xperia Z2 is Sony’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8) and the Apple iPhone 5S, and now it is finally here.

Customers who purchase the Xperia Z2 will also receive a digital copy of XSCAPE, an album of new tracks from Michael Jackson.

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.
