This speaker is the JBL PlayUp Wireless Speaker (MD-51W), which features near-field communication (NFC) for wireless pairing with the Lumia 920 and 820 handsets. The speaker also features Bluetooth and a 3.5mm headphone connection, so it can be used with most other portable music players. Also inside the unit is a 1430mAh battery, so you don't need a power point to use it.

The pre-order offer runs up until 26 November, which aligns with the expected street date for the Lumia 920. Telstra will offer the phone on its standard Everyday Connect plans, starting from AU$65 per month, including handset-repayment charges. The telco will be offering the 920 as a carrier exclusive in Australia, though it will also be available for outright purchase through a number of electronics retailers.

The Lumia 920 marks the entrance of the Windows Phone 8 platform into the Australian market, though Nokia will have competition from HTC and Samsung in the weeks that follow the launch of the 920 on Telstra.

The handset is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm processor, has 4G connectivity and comes with Nokia's PureView camera technology, including optical image stabilisation.
