Virgin Mobile offering data for customers who switch to their network, perks for existing users too


Getting in on the action which Optus created only days ago and has since seen Telstra respond with their own deal, Virgin Mobile are taking their deal in a different direction, offering more data — a whole lot more in fact — if you make the switch or upgrade your Virgin Mobile plan.

Telstra jumps on carrier switch incentive bandwagon with up to $450 on offer

telstra updates

Not to be outdone by their immediate competitor, Telstra has announced that it too will be offering up to $450 in credit for a limited time for customers who move to their network.

Optus will offer up to $450 if you switch, early upgrades for current users


The competition amongst carriers vying for your commitment to contracts is reaching new heights as Optus are now offering a rather tempting offer for customers on other carriers as well as their own.

Samsung’s tough Galaxy Tab Active will be making its way to AUS

Galaxy Tab Active-C-Pen

Do you lead a life full of excitement and danger? Do you scale great heights at your local rock climbing venue and revel in the thrill of it all, even though you’re hooked up to a harness? Well no matter what gets your kicks, Samsung believe they have a tablet that’ll meet all your media needs when you find yourself in tight situations. Just hope these events don’t happen to unfold anywhere above 1.2 metres.

Toshiba announces Chromebook 2 for Australia

Toshiba Chromebook 2

Toshiba revealed their second generation Chromebook over at IFA this week and it turns out it won’t be long until it’s made available here.

The the somewhat aptly titled Toshiba Chromebook 2 was announced with two variants at IFA, a lower spec model which retains the HD 1366 x 768 screen of the original and 2GB of RAM, or a much snazzier model with a 1080p IPS display and 4GB of RAM.

Care to guess which model is landing here, at least initially?

Yep, that’s right and unlike in the States where the base model will retail for $249.00, Aussies should be prepared to fork a ridiculous $449.00 when it goes on sale in October this year.

So what does …

In what seems as though it’s been a long time in the making the Chinese OEM is staging an event in Sydney on the 2nd of September to mark their official entry to the space.

At the moment besides event details, any details pertaining to devices, availability and prices are presently unknown, but we’ve been informed there’s more details to come soon, which we suspect will be revealed on the day….
