  • Telstra has announced it will be offering Google’s new Nexus 5 smartphone on contract over 24 months. Pricing starts at $69 per month, which includes $600 worth of calls and MMS, unlimited SMS and 1GB of data on a 24 month contract. Head over to Gizmodo for more details.

  • Nexus 5 on telstra. Talk about ripoff. $69 per month for 24 months, 1GB data and $600 in calls? How about you buy it outright ($399), go on the telstra pre-paid encore plan ($50 per month – $1000 worth of calls (including overseas) + 800MB data (slightly less I know)), and you’ll still be $56 better off. Plus you can lower your spend based on your habits, plus you can use left over credit (of your initial $50) on apps, music, anything from the play store up to $20 value per purchase. Only plus side I can see is that you don’t have to fork out the $$ at the beginning.

  • $696 to buy the phone outright from Telstra. He couldn’t tell me if that was for the 16 or 32 gig version.
    Either way, I won’t be buying it from there. That’s way more than the price on Google Play Store!
