The as-yet-unreleased smartphone leaked in the video appears to be called the Desire 200. It is an entry level, budget device with a 3.5in touchscreen and basic specifications.

While the phone shown off in the video review may be an early prototype, it does reveal some key specifications. The Desire 200 is expected to have a very low display resolution of 320x480, will be powered by a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, and will come with 4GB of internal memory.

The video also appears to show a microSD card slot for memory expansion, along with a removable 1400mAh battery. The phone surprisingly appears to be running the older Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) version of Android, though this could change before its official release.

The Desire 200 appears to be a successor to the Desire C, a prepaid Android phone that launched in Australia late last year exclusively through Telstra.

The video of the HTC Desire 200 can be viewed below.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
