Samsung has released a teaser video showing brief glimpses of its rumoured Galaxy Note 2 smartphone, ahead of a widely predicted launch on Wednesday 29 August.

Tagged with the quote "your magical moments will come alive on 29th August 2012" the teaser video doesn't reveal any specific details of the rumoured device, but shows multiple glimpses of what appears to be a stylus being removed. It also shows what looks like an S Pen drawing on a brightly coloured screen.

The teaser trailer features German film director, photographer, producer and author Wim Wenders and appears to be targeted at creative users.

The original Samsung Galaxy Note, only released in Australia back in March, is best described as either an extra large smartphone or a small tablet. It has a 5.3in screen and includes a stylus called the "S Pen" that allows users to take notes, draw onto the screen and annotate images and PDF files.

Despite initially expected to be a niche device, Samsung announced last week that it has sold 10 million units of the Galaxy Note worldwide. The milestone comes four months ahead of schedule, as the company initially forecasted it would sell 10 million units by the end of 2012.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 2 at the IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung) consumer electronics trade show in Berlin next week. The second generation Galaxy Note is widely rumoured to come with a slightly larger 5.5in display, up from 5.3in, as well as a faster quad-core processor.

The teaser trailer for the second generation Samsung Galaxy Note can be seen below:

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.

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!

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.
