Engadget has released new images of the rumoured PlayStation Phone, which attempts to take portable gaming down the same route as the Apple iPhone.

The leaked images of the PlayStation Phone reveal a Sony Ericson logo, a long touchpad and a brace of familiar PlayStation buttons – including a D-pad and shoulder buttons.

According to Engadget, the device is likely to run Android 3.0, and offer access to a new Sony Marketplace for purchasing PlayStation Phone games. Specifications include a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 CPU, 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, and a 3.7in to 4.1in screen.

The PlayStation Phone seems to be a direct response to the Apple iPhone, which has been steadily gobbling up the handheld gaming market share since its release in 2007. At the time of writing, Sony has yet to reveal any specific game titles, but HD remakes of PSX classics seem like a safe bet.

The PlayStation phone is likely to hit stores some time in 2011.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.

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.
