Five Samsung tablet sizes touted including 14in

Samsung has set its sights on selling 10 million Galaxy S4 units per month.

Samsung is still weeks, maybe months away from launching the Galaxy S4 but is planning on selling a whopping 10 million per month, according to Money Today. If the smartphone maker hits these targets it will make the Galaxy S4 fastest selling Android handset ever. See also: Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, specs and rumours

The news comes after Samsung announced it has sold 100 million Galaxy S series smartphones since the original Galaxy S launched in 2010. It took the firm seven months to flog 10 million.

For comparison the Galaxy S3 reached sales of 20 million in the space of 100 days, but Samsung hopes to hit this figure in two month for the Galaxy S4. To date the Galaxy S3 has sold more than 40 million units around the world.

Money Today claims that Samsung wants to shift a total of 500 million mobile phones this year with 300 million set to be smartphones. The site also said Samsung is said to be working on tablets in five different sizes - 7in, 8in, 10in, 12in and 14in.

Images and specifications have been leaked online of a Galaxy Note 8.0 which will be announced at Mobile World Congress next month.

The Galaxy S4 is tipped to get a Full HD 5in screen, wireless charging, a 13Mp camera and an Exynos 5 Octa 8-core processor. The latest rumours suggest it will be unveiled at a Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in the US on 22 March with a release date in April.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
