The new handset is codenamed "EOS" and is widely expected to be the first Windows Phone device to feature a 41-megapixel PureView camera. The media event is scheduled for Thursday, 11 July.

Nokia sent out official invitations to the New York event earlier this month but posted a teaser on its Conversations blog overnight using the tagline "41 million reasons", the same amount of megapixels in a PureView camera.

Nokia first debuted its PureView technology early last year on the 808 PureView, one of the last smartphones to run Nokia's Symbian operating system.

The PureView technology on the 808 uses what's called oversampling to combine up to seven pixels into one "pure" pixel when taking typical sized shots (5-megapixels).

Nokia says this eliminates the visual noise found on other mobile phone cameras while at the same time allowing you to zoom in up to three times without losing any detail. The company says the imaging technology on the 808 PureView took over five years to develop.

Leaked images of the rumoured Nokia EOS smartphone were published earlier this month by US site GSMArena. The photos revealed a device with a Xenon flash, OLED display, polycarbonate body, and 32GB of internal memory.

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.
