Originally reported by German technology Web site Macerkopf.de, but posted by MacRumours.com, an unnamed source says that Apple will unveil iOS 5 and a revamped MobileMe service in the first or second week of April.

Apple traditionally shows off features of its next-generation iOS platform a few months before it launches new iPhone hardware; in 2010, the company unveiled iOS 4 in April, and then launched the iPhone 4 in July.

iOS 5 is widely expected to include changes to the iPhone and iPad notifications system, along with revamped multitasking, and improved voice commands. Strong rumours also suggest that Apple plans to improve its MobileMe service by making it free (currently $119) and having it store personal user data like photos, music and videos.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

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.
