HTC this week announced the launch of its flagship smartphone in Australia, the Touch Pro.

Unveiled at an exclusive media launch in Sydney, the Touch Pro features a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard and HTC’s innovative TouchFLO 3D interface, which is designed to provide effortless access to commonly used features without the use of a stylus.

The Touch Pro has similar style and functionality to HTC's Touch Diamond handset. The phone runs the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system, supports HSDPA network speeds, includes TV-out functionality and comes with YouTube and Google Maps applications pre-installed.

HTC claims the handset successfully combines the best of both business and multimedia features while maintaining a compact, streamlined design. The handset will compete on the Australian market with the likes of the Apple iPhone 3G, RIM’s BlackBerry Bold 9000 and Nokia’s E71.

The Touch Pro will originally be available through 3 Mobile stores and dealers across Australia for $22 per month on a $69 cap plan over 24 months. Other carriers will have the handset available in mid-October. The handset can also be purchased outright for $1099.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
