Telstra has published a post on its exchange blog, noticed by Ausdroid, hinting that the telco may launch Motorola's Atrix Android smartphone in Australia.

Check out our guide to the best upcoming tablets in 2011 and the best upcoming smartphones in 2011.

Titled "Coming to a (small) screen near you: The year ahead in mobile tech", the blog by Telstra's Executive Director of mobile products Warwick Bray specifically mentions the Motorola Atrix, which can be teamed with an all-in-one keyboard and 11-inch screen accessory that transforms the phone into a full laptop. The Atrix laptop dock runs by tapping the phone's processor, memory and mobile Internet connection.

The Motorola Atrix was first announced at CES 2011 and is an Android smartphone equipped with a dual-core processor that runs Android 2.2, has a full HTML 5 browser, and supports HD video. Along with a 1GHz dual-core processor, the Atrix also has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a "gHD" display, a fingerprint reader, and a 1930-mAh battery.

Along with the Atrix, Bray also expects smartphones running dual core processors, and bigger, brighter screens, and a new range of tablets with screens ranging from seven to 11 inches. "We saw some very impressive Next G compatible tablets running upcoming Google Android software. Watch this space."

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!

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.
