HTC starts countdown to One smartphone launch

Gives sneak peak of HTC One, formally M7 smartphone

HTC has posted a countdown timer to its HTC One smartphone launch.

The clock is ticking away the seconds and minutes until next week's HTC One launch on 19 February, formally known as the HTC M7. Each time the last digit reaches one, a brief glimpse of the new device is shown. See also: HTC M7 to launch on 19 February.

There's not a great deal to see from the short and sharp flashes which are complete with excessive amounts of lens flare. The main focus is on the rear facing camera which will supposedly introduce new Ultrapixel technology.

We are also shown some nice curving edges of the white handset, a prominent HTC logo and a white band running from edge to edge. You can see all the combined flashes of the new HTC One which will succeed the HTC One X+ in the video below. See also Group test: what's the best Android phone.

A recently leaked image claiming to be the HTC One also happens to be white and sports the same bevelled edge shown off in the brief clip.

The HTC One's rumoured specifications include a 4.7in Full HD (1920 x 1080) screen, 13Mp camera and a 1.7GHz quad-core processor.

It's also been suggested that HTC will launch two other phones along with the One, called the M4 and G2. They will have a 4.3in and 3.5in display respectively. The M4 will supposedly come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and the G2 will ship with the older 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

It's not long until HTC's pre-MWC (Mobile World Congress) event in London so all will be revealed.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.
