Rising Chinese company Oppo will sell its range of smartphones across 397 retail stores managed by Dick Smith.

This includes 360 Dick Smith stores, nine Move stores and 28 Powered by Dick Smith electronic departments in David Jones.

Dick Smith's retail properties will exclusively sell Oppo’s upcoming R7 flagship, a 5-inch Android smartphone that is 6mm thick, which will launch in Australia on 28 July.

The phablet R7 Plus is expected to be released locally at a later date.

Existing Oppo smartphones will go on sale across Dick Smith’s retail properties on 14 July. These include the Find 7, Find 7a, N1 Mini and N3.

Oppo did not reveal if its R5 — once the world’s thinnest smartphone at 4.85mm — will be made available at Dick Smith.

The retail partnership strategically advances Oppo’s presence in the Australian market. The Chinese smartphone company soft launched last September in Australia and then made its way into brick and mortar stores three months later after forging a partnership with AllPhones.

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.

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.
