    Brother has unveiled the fastest printer in the world, spitting out pages at 100 per minute. Presented as a perfect middle ground between inkjet and laser printing, it's primarily intended for corporate use.

    Nobody has the slightest inkling what it's called, how much it will cost, or when it will be released. But we did see it—and film it—at work. Yes, it really does exist.

    It's official, 100 pages per minute is now the fastest printing speed on the market. The technology is based on a single 21.5 cm-wide print head with no fewer than 5,198 nozzles.

    The mysterious printer performs somewhat like a departmental printer. A multitude of trays can be added for different paper types in order to produce the quantities needed for massive printing jobs. It is capable of simultaneous double-sided printing and the print head is stationary.

    Brother claims that it halves both printing costs and the machine's carbon footprint. As we wait for further information, here's the video we took at the presentation in Berlin.

    Like LG, Samsung has been telling the Korean press all about its agreements to supply Sony with TV screen panels.

    Samsung COO, Lee Jay Youg, told the Korean Times that Sony OLED TVs fitted with Samsung screen panels were due to land in 2013. "Bravia OLED TVs will be available to consumers from early next year," he said, with a deal currently in the pipeline to fix prices and supply volume between the two firms.

    The Korean Times article reports that Samsung and Sony chiefs met last week to finalise the details of the partnership. Samsung apparently beat LG to the Sony OLED contract due to its more competitive pricing. We were a bit surprised to see that there wasn't some more technical reason behind the decision, as the two Korean firms have quite different approaches to OLED technology.

    Sony's directors haven't commented on the news, but it seems strange that they've left it up to LG and Samsung to announce their upcoming TV ranges. LG revealed that Sony would be using its passive 3D panels in forthcoming 3D TV ranges, while Samsung has now seemingly revealed Sony's OLED TV release schedule. Sony, however, is keeping mum.

    The One X has a large 4.7-inch display, a new-generation 1.5 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3, 1 GB of RAM, a backlit 8-Mpx camera sensor with a 28-mm wide-angle lens capable of filming in 1080p and 32 GB of internal storage (non-expandable).

    Does the One X live up to the hype? Is it responsive in all situations? Is the Sense 4.0 interface really an asset? Does it truly optimise the HTC ecosystem? How does this multimedia smartphone hold up during use? Answers within...
