Is this the HTC One, previously known as the M7?

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

The latest leaked press image is almost identical to the one that was published last week, but shows a black device instead of a white and silver one.

The evleaks Twitter account, which has a solid track record when it comes to publishing correct rumours, suggests the picture could be a US press image as it displays New York as the city on the home screen. The image of the white and silver HTC device leaked last week displayed London as the city.

The as-yet-unreleased device is being referred to as the HTC One but was previously rumoured to be codenamed 'M7'. It appears to be a large phone with a strange button layout — a back button on the left and a home button on the right are flanked by a rather large HTC logo. The absence of a multitasking button, a traditional feature of HTC Android phones, is striking.

HTC is expected to unveil the rumoured phone this week, after it sent invitations to Australian technology media to attend an "exclusive HTC product launch" scheduled for Thursday 21 February in Sydney.

The invitation, which was addressed to various technology media outlets in Australia, invites attendees to "explore HTC's newest and most anticipated device".

Interestingly, the Sydney product launch will see two bands playing. HTC published an infographic last week suggesting it will "kick off a new sound and camera experience in 2013." The leaked images of the HTC device suggest the phone could have dual speakers.

In addition to the Sydney media event, HTC will hold a press event in New York tomorrow. The event is scheduled a few days before the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 event kicks off 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.
