Otago Daily Times technology editor Dene Mackenzie has
sourced the king of printers and a snazzy new cellphone to
give away to two lucky Summer Times readers.
HP Photosmart e-All-In-OneShop, smile, print!
The HP Photosmart e-All-In-One 7520 is valued at $349. The
e-All-in-One will help keep the family sorted this holiday
season. You will be able to print off those Christmas gift
vouchers or photos, take a scan of your passport before you
head off on holiday, copy those driving directions so you can
find the crib and send faxes, but with the HP Photosmart
7520, you will also be able to do so much more.
The HP Photosmart 7520 allows you to access web content via a
colour touch screen so you will not even have to be connected
to a laptop to print out a map or a Sudoku puzzle to do over
breakfast! It also features wireless direct printing,
allowing you to print without the need of an internet network
or router, and HP ePrint, which allows you to print from your
smartphone or tablet from virtually anywhere.
The e-All-in-One printer addresses the needs of everyone in
the family, from printing vivid, lab-quality photos to duplex
printing of everyday documents. HP Scheduled Delivery print
apps also allow families to choose the content they want to
access directly from the printer, including maps, news,
puzzles, education content and more. Everyone will be smiling
if this is under the tree! Of all the functions, which one
would you use the most?

HTC Windows Phone
The new Windows Phone 8S-BK phone (RRP $499) by HTC has
exclusive Beats Audio built in, which serves up
studio-quality sound for all your entertainment. There is a
physical camera button that lets you instantly, point, shoot
and share, while a free SkyDrive account means that wherever
you go, so does your content. The cool clean look of Live
Tiles puts personalisation at your fingertips.

followed by the sleek form from the Live Tiles.

phone, alarm clock, calendar, internet, email, photo
messaging and a long-lasting battery.
There is 16 hours of talk time, 22.7 days of stand-by time
