Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo preview: The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo has an HDMI-out port for connection to the latest high definition TVs

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play may have received most of the attention so far this year, but Sony Ericsson is intent on expanding the entire XPERIA range of Android phones. The latest handset is the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo, which is geared towards entertainment and has a built-in HDMI-out port.

Featuring a similar design to Sony Ericsson's disappointing Vivaz smartphone, the XPERIA Neo is claimed to offer an "exceptional multimedia experience." The Android-powered smartphone uses Sony's Bravia graphics engine in order to produce smoother video playback, and has an Exmor R camera sensor that should take better photographs in dim light. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo also has a built-in HDMI-out port, allowing the phone to connect to a high-definition television to view multimedia content.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo smartphone features a 3.7in display with a resolution of 854x480, an 8-megapixel rear camera that doubles as a 720p HD video recorder, and a 2-megapixel front camera for video calls. The XPERIA Neo is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and has 1GB of RAM but strangely just 320MB of internal memory; there is a microSD card slot for extra storage.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo Android phone is constructed of glossy plastic and features a curved design. It runs the 2.3 Gingerbread version of Google's Android platform.

Telstra has confirmed it will exclusively launch the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo Android phone in Australia in the "first half of 2011". Pricing has yet to be 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.

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.
