Let the MP3 play

On Tuesday the company released the SGH M-100, a mobile phone that combines a Global System for Mobile communication phone with an MP3 audio player.

The M-100 contains a dedicated key that lets the user switch between music and a phone conversation. When a call is completed, the system returns the user to the point at which the music stopped, Samsung says in a statement.

The handset contains a 32MB flash memory chip and can store up to 25 minutes of music, or approximately eight songs, according to Samsung.

The M-100 is aimed at the business market as well as the youth market, according to Samsung. It will be offered in the United Kingdom in the third quarter through a cobranding deal with Virgin Mobile telecoms. The phone is expected to cost $US480.

Samsung also unveiled at the CommunicAsia show earlier this week something it described as the world's smallest wireless application protocol mobile phone. The SGH-A110 weighs 3.1 ounces and has a six-line text display, with a built-in calendar, to-do list, and calculator.

The third new mobile phone released on Tuesday is the SPH-N101, which supports both CDMA (code division multiple access) and AMPS (advanced mobile phone system) modes, and is primarily aimed at the youth market with features such as a selection of 20 ring tones, image and melody downloads, and fashion accessories.

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.

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.
