Claiming to "set a new standard for entry-level smartphones", the HTC Desire 300 has a 4.3in screen, runs the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor.

However, the phone lacks 4G connectivity, has just 512MB of RAM and only boasts 4GB of internal memory. A microSD card slot does allow users to expand the on-board memory.

Telstra's Director of Devices, Andrew Volard, said the HTC Desire 300 will be an ideal stocking filler for the upcoming Christmas season.

"The HTC Desire 300 is a great addition to the HTC family at Telstra and I’m sure it will be a popular choice for customers who are after a high-quality but affordable pre-paid smartphone, particularly coming into the festive season."

The Desire 300 will include the company's BlinkFeed software feature, which constantly streams personalised content from various sources to the home screen.

The HTC Desire 300 will retail for $179, and will be sold exclusively in Australia through Telstra.

It will be available in stores and online from Tuesday, 29 October.

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.
