Samsung launching Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy S 2

New tablet and smartphone to be launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month

We love a good rumour or leak, and this time it's Samsung's plans for its Mobile World Congress (MWC) announcement in Barcelona next month.

The Samsung Hub blog has leaked a PR document that all but confirms Samsung will launch the Galaxy Tab 2 and the Galaxy S 2 in Barcelona on 13 February.

These rumours have been floating around the traps for some time. The Samsung Galaxy S 2 is likely to sport a dual-core processor (like LG's Optimus 2X), while there are suggestions the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 may come with a 10in screen, making it a larger device than the original 7in Galaxy Tab.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 will more than likely run Android 3.0 or "Honeycomb" which has specifically been designed for tablets, while the Galaxy S 2 should come with Android 2.3 or "Gingerbread", the latest Android version available for smartphone devices.

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.

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.
