Samsung Galaxy S4 to be revealed next February

Rumour mill starts turning on iPhone 5 rival, the Galaxy S4

Samsung will announce its Galaxy S4 smartphone in February at Mobile World Congress.

We've only had the Galaxy S3 for a while and the iPhone 5 was revealed last week but eyes are already turning to Samsung's Galaxy S4. The smartphone and arguably iPhone 5 rival will arrive next February, according to The Korea Times which cites 'company officials and local parts suppliers'.

"Samsung is ready to unveil the next Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S4, at early next year's mobile world congress (MWC) in the Spanish city of Barcelona," said an official from the firm asking not to be identified.

The Galaxy S4 already has some possible specifications including a Samsung Exynos processor and a 5in screen, up from 4.8in of the S3. It will also support LTE networks for 4G mobile broadband like the upcoming Galaxy S3 LTE. Android is likely to be the operating system of choice one again.

It was expected that Samsung would reveal the Galaxy S3 at this year's MWC. However, the firm decided to wait until afterwards to hold an Apple-style event solely for the S3 in London.

"Samsung wants to keep its one-year product schedule and the Galaxy S4 will be the first to match that strategy. The S4 will see some external changes but retain its popular rectangular shape with rounded corner concept," said an official from one of Samsung's local partners.

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.
