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.

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.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

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.

MSI PS63

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.
