AT&T announces HTC One pre-orders to begin this week

AT&T is the first US carrier to announce specifics for the plus-sized, aluminum-clad HTC One.

It's a big month for HTC. As the phone manufacturer gets set to unveil their rumored Facebook Phone (or at least unveil their role as the initial handset for a mobile Facebook OS), they are also readying the launch of the newest incarnation of their flagship aluminum-cased super phone, the HTC One.

AT&T recently announced they will offer the new 4.7-inch HTC One beginning on April 19 starting at $200, with pre-orders beginning this week. The HTC One on AT&T will come available in 32 and 64 GB models (the beefier version will be available for $300). While all the other major carriers have promised to support the phone, a report from The Pentagon Post states that AT&T may have the exclusive rights to the 64 GB version.

The standard One will be $50 cheaper than the rival plus-sized Samsung Galaxy S4 (available for pre-order on AT&T starting April 16), and the same price as the basic iPhone 5, which is available now.

As a special offer, HTC will also bribe early adaptors to buy their phone. Users who sign-up to purchase the One before April 4 regardless of carrier will be eligible to receive a $100 pre-paid visa card or the trade-in value of their old phone (whichever is greater).

After facing delays on the One, no one is more hopeful for the phone's success than HTC's CEO, Peter Chou reportedly told a group of executives that he would step down if the phone was not a blockbuster.

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.

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.
