The five million figure is far less impressive than Samsung's statement yesterday that it has shipped 10 million Galaxy S4 smartphones in less than a month.

However, the global launch of the HTC One was delayed due to a shortage of components including camera lenses.

According to The Wall Street Journal, who cited an anonymous HTC executive, the company "has sold around 5 million One smartphones" since its launch about a month ago.

"Orders are pretty good so far and are still more than what we can supply. This is partly due to the shortage of components. When the issue is resolved next month, we will have a better idea if it’s doing really well or not."

The One shipment news follows the departure of multiple HTC senior executives. Earlier this week, HTC's Chief Product Officer Kouji Kodera left the company, while the vice president of global communications, Jason Gordon, and the CEO of HTC Asia, Lennard Hoornick, also departed.

US website The Verge has also revealed that HTC's global retail marketing manager, Rebecca Rowland, director of digital marketing, John Starkweather, and product strategy manager, Eric Lin have all recently left the company.

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.

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.
