A press image of what appears to be HTC's latest flagship Android phone has been leaked on Twitter account @evleaks.

Previously rumoured to be called the M7, the leaked device is now being referred to as the HTC One. The evleaks Twitter account, which has a solid track record when it comes to publishing correct rumours, suggests that the handset will simply be branded "HTC One".

The leaked press image of the device shows a large device with what appears to be a strange button layout. The phone pictured has a back button on the left and a home button on the right, flanked by a rather large HTC logo. The absence of a multitasking button, a traditional feature of HTC Android phones, is striking.

The phone appears to have a two-tone colour scheme, with a black bezel surrounding the screen and a white piece on both the top and bottom edges. Both pieces could house a speaker — the company published an infographic last week suggesting it will "kick off a new sound and camera experience in 2013."

The bottom of the rumoured HTC One device does appear to look slightly angled. An angular design wouldn't be a first for the company, which used a similar design on its Legend Android phone back in 2010.

The HTC One (codenamed M7) is expected to feature a 4.7in full HD display and is likely to come with the latest version of the company's Sense user interface, version 5.0.

HTC will hold a press event in New York on Tuesday 19 February where it is expected to unveil the HTC One. The event is scheduled a few days before the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 event in Barcelona, Spain.

MWC is the world's largest mobile trade show and traditionally sees most major mobile manufacturers release new smartphones.

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.
