The as-yet-unreleased smartphone leaked in the video appears to be called the Desire 200. It is an entry level, budget device with a 3.5in touchscreen and basic specifications.

While the phone shown off in the video review may be an early prototype, it does reveal some key specifications. The Desire 200 is expected to have a very low display resolution of 320x480, will be powered by a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, and will come with 4GB of internal memory.

The video also appears to show a microSD card slot for memory expansion, along with a removable 1400mAh battery. The phone surprisingly appears to be running the older Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) version of Android, though this could change before its official release.

The Desire 200 appears to be a successor to the Desire C, a prepaid Android phone that launched in Australia late last year exclusively through Telstra.

The video of the HTC Desire 200 can be viewed below.

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!

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.
