HTC today announced the launch of its latest smartphone in Australia, the Touch HD.

Exclusive to Telstra's Next G network until April 30, and expected to be available through Telstra shops and dealers from 10 February, the Touch HD's key feature is a large 3.8in VGA display. This is one of the largest screens available on a mobile phone, surpassing the iPhone 3G's 3.5in display.

The phone also offers HTC's TouchFLO 3D interface, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack and a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus. HTC will also bundle an 8GB microSD card in the sales package.

"Touch HD delivers an uncompromising multimedia and Internet experience", said HTC's Anthony Petts. "The Internet is so much more than just e-mail and our customers expect to be able to access the Internet and high quality multimedia content when they are on the move."

The Touch HD is a HSDPA device that is theoretically capable of 7.2Mbps. Telstra is in the process of upgrading its network to support speeds of up to 21Mbps, but the Touch HD won't be able to take advantage of this.

The HTC Touch HD will be available outright for $1499. Telstra is also offering the handset for $0 upfront on a $150 member plan with a repayment option of $62.45 per month over 24 months.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
