Samsung to launch Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy S4 Ativ this month

Incoming Samsung Galaxy S4 versions revealed with release dates

Samsung is expected to announce three new smartphones by the end of May, the Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy S4 Ativ. See also: Samsung Galaxy S4 review.

We've already got the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Mega coming but plenty more devices are on their way from Samsung, according to SamMobile. The Galaxy S4 Zoom's release date will be in June while the Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy S4 Ativ will be released in July.

The Samsung Galaxy Zoom is rumoured to sport a 16Mp camera and a 4.3in qHG SuperAMOLED screen. It will have 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and run on Android Jelly Bean. It's unknown whether the smartphone will have a dual-core or quad-core processor.

We've known about the Galaxy S4 mini for a while, of which a photo was leaked recently. Specifications include 4.3in SuperAMOLED qHD screen, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0.

Little is known about the Galaxy S4 Ativ apart from that it will supposedly by a ruggedised version of the Galaxy S4. It will therefore be waterproof and dustproof like the Sony Xperia Z.

The news comes as the Galaxy S4 is due to be investigated on BBC's Watchdog for its storage issues. In a teaser for the upcoming show, Anne Robinson says "Samsung, it claims its brand new Galaxy phone has an extra-large memory, but what did it forget to mention?"

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.
