LG has announced the launch of its G-Slate Android tablet, which will run Google Android's 3.0 Honeycomb software specifically designed for larger screened tablet devices.

The LG G-Slate tablet has an 8.9in 3D-capable, multi-touch display, will record 3D and full HD video, supports the playback of 720p HD video and will output full 1080p HD content via a HDMI port. It will be powered by a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2, will offer full Adobe Flash player support, and will come with 32GB of internal memory.

The 4G-capable LG G-Slate will also be one of the first tablet devices to feature 3D capabilities including built-in support for 3D graphics. However, unlike the upcoming Nintendo 3DS gaming console and LG's own Optimus 3D Android phone, the G-Slate will require the use of 3D glasses.

"We are excited to introduce the T-Mobile G-Slate by LG, which offers consumers an engaging new way to communicate, entertain and stay connected," said Tim O' Brien, vice president of marketing for LG mobile phones.

The LG G-Slate will launch exclusively on the T-Mobile network in the US, with pricing and launch dates yet to be revealed.

Further information on LG tablet devices, including those slated for an Australian release, is set to be made at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona on the 14 February.

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.
