Quoted by US Blog, Huawei Device's CEO, Richard Yu, says the company is aiming to sell 10 million units of the new smartphone when it goes on sale in the coming weeks.

The blog claims Huawei has allocated 90 million Yuan (US$11 million) to the Ascend P6's marketing budget in its home country of China, with another US$30 million set aside for European advertising.

Huawei announced the Ascend P6 earlier this week, claiming the device is the "world's slimmest smartphone" at just 6.18mm. The company also says it comes with an "industry leading" 5-megapixel front-facing camera, which compares favourably against largely 2-megapixel alternatives.

The Huawei Ascend P6 will launch in China from June and should be available in Western Europe from July. It is expected to cost around €450 in Europe and CNY2,688 (around €327) in China, making it significantly cheaper than competing smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.

Huawei Australia says there is "nothing to announce regarding an Australian launch" for the Ascend P6 but told us to "stay tuned".

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.
