3G mobile phones: The best of the best

We take a look at the 10 best 3G phones on the market

Sony Ericsson W760i

RRP: $799

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 KF700

RRP: $699

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

RRP: $899

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.

Samsung G800

RRP: $799

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.

Aysha Strobbe

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.
