Sony Ericsson W760i
The first Walkman handset to be exclusively available on Telstra’s Next G network, the W760i is a combination of a smooth design and excellent build quality. Built in-GPS, good multimedia abilities and a great interface all combine to make the W760i an excellent all-rounder.
LG is leading the charge against the iPhone with its Touch series, headed by the HSDPA-capable KF700. This sleek and stylish slider offers the convenience of a finger-operated interface, but also gives users a slide-out keypad and shortcut dial. HSDPA connectivity, a touch-screen Web browser and Bluetooth with the A2DP profile prove that this handset isn’t just about looks.
Sony Ericsson C902
An impressive mix of imaging and phone functions, Sony Ericsson’s C902 sports a 5-megapixel camera with face-detection technology, autofocus and flash. This stylish candybar handset is also HSDPA-capable. It's also just 11mm thick! The large display works well with the phone's camera.
The first mobile phone with a camera that features optical zoom, Samsung’s G800 represents a huge step forward for the camera phone market. In addition to its imaging capabilities, this chunky beast is HSDPA-capable. The camera produces reasonable images and has a host of options, including red eye reduction, a self-timer, face detection and an anti-shake feature.
