Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Awarded Telstra Blue Tick Certification

Telstra has announced that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ have been awarded Blue Tick certification.

The Blue Tick means the new Samsung smartphones provide the best possible coverage in rural and regional areas and join those handsets that Telstra recommends for use by regional customers to provide them with the best coverage experience.

“The Telstra Mobile Network is Australia’s largest, fastest and most reliable, but user experience is not just about the network, it is also about the handset,” said Kevin Teoh, Telstra’s Head of Mobiles.  “For this reason Telstra established the Blue Tick certification to recommend products which have passed specific testing and which will, as a result, deliver superior voice coverage performance for our customers in regional and rural areas. We are happy to report that the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ both came through our extensive field and lab tests with flying colours and are duly awarded our Blue Tick certification.”

Other handsets that are Blue Tick certified currently include the iPhone 8, Telstra Tough Max 2, Sony Xperia XZ and more.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be available to purchase on March 16th.

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.

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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
