Grab Samsung's productivity 2-in-1 on contract through Telstra

While handsets have remained the bread and butter of telco life, in recent years we've seen an increasing trend for carriers to offer up other technology products on contract terms, especially where it's feasible to also bundle some kind of mobile data package. Vodafone recently announced it would be offering the Huawei Watch 2 on contract terms, and today Telstra has announced it will offer the Samsung Galaxy Book on 24-month contract terms.

Samsung only recently launched the Galaxy Book in Australia, although it announced the device (along with the Android-based Galaxy Tab 3) back at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Telstra will offer both the 10.6-inch and 12-inch variants of the Galaxy Book, with an early sign-up bonus of a Samsung Multiport Adaptor and a Staedtler Norris Digital Pen for customers who sign up before 12 September 2017.

Telstra will pair the Galaxy Book with its S, M and L plans, with separate device repayments relative to the cost of the Galaxy Book depending on size:

Prices listed are on a per-month basis.

S (1GB)M (10GB)L (20GB)
Galaxy Book 10.6" (128GB)$55$80$100
Galaxy Book 12" (128GB)$80$100$120
Galaxy Book 12" (256GB)$99$120$140
