Apple today took the wraps off the company's next iPhone, the 'iPhone 3GS,' saying it is two to three times faster that current models, offers digital video capabilities in its new camera and will go on sale June 19 in the U.S.

The 32GB model will sell for US$299; a 16GB model will go for US$199. Both come in black or white, the same color choices now offered. And Apple plans to sell the 8GB version of the current iPhone 3G for $99 beginning today.

The announcement came at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), where the company also announced that its next operating system, Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard, will go on sale in September as a US$29 upgrade from the current OS.

Apple officials also announced changes to the company's laptop line-up as well, including a new 15-in. MacBook pro.

But the focus of the event was clearly the new iPhone and the iPhone OS 3.0, which will be released on June 17.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.
