Blog MobileMentalism has leaked images and specifications of what it claims to be the HTC HD3 smartphone, the successor to the HTC HD2 smartphone and one of the first smartphones that will run Microsoft's all-new operating system, Windows Phone 7 Series.

If the blog is correct, the HTC HD3 will almost certainly be the most feature-packed smartphone ever built, equipped with a massive 4.5in AMOLED touchscreen, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, an 8-megapixel camera with a dual LED flash, and an HDMI output.

The HTC HD3, which is claimed to be just 10mm thick, will also be one of the first smartphones to run Windows Phone 7 Series, which was first unveiled in February Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona.

The full list of alleged specifications is as follows:

4.5 in capacitive, AMOLED touch screen display

1280×800 pixel resolution

1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor

1080p HD video playback

720p HD video recording

8megapixel camera with dual-LED flash

Multitouch

GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

3G and 4G connectivity

1GB RAM

1GB internal memory

32GB external memory

3.5mm headphone jack

HDMI output

1800mAh battery

115mm x 65mm x 10mm dimensions

Perhaps the most interesting feature listed is 4G connectivity, likely to be WiMAX. The HD3 wouldn't be the first phone with 4G connectivity, with HTC already releasing the Evo 4G through US telco Sprint.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
