LG previews its next Black Label designer handset

The handset will be LG's fourth one in the premium series

The fourth and latest member of LG's design-conscious Black Label family of handsets is out soon and already being teased on the Web.

The phone is the first to have a widescreen 21:9 aspect ratio screen, which is 4 inches in size and has 345 by 800 pixel resolution. That makes the screen longer and thinner than the 16:9 displays found on many new TVs and monitors.

It also has a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, and multi-touch plus all the scheduling, contact and other functions expected in mobile phones today.

There's not much else known about the phone so far. It will go on sale in Europe first and should be available in major markets from late August.

The Black Label began with the Chocolate phone, which was followed by the Shine and then the Secret. The name of the new handset has not yet been announced.

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.

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.
