Mother's Day is rapidly approaching. If you think your mum needs a new mobile phone, then check out our handy guide to some of the best handsets for every kind of mother.

The Trendy Mum: Apple iPhone 3G

If your mum loves music and knows the difference between AAC and MP3 files, the Apple iPhone 3G might be for her. Offering 8GB or 16GB of data storage for music and videos, and great mobile Internet access, it's still one of the hottest phones on the market almost a year after being released!

The Active Mum: Sonim XP3 Enduro mobile phone

If you've got a mum that loves the outdoors, then she might appreciate the Sonim XP3 Enduro: one of the toughest mobile phones on the market. Waterproof, rugged and easy to use, it'll survive plenty of falls and bumps before it kicks the bucket. The built-in LED light is handy when you're trying to fit a key in a lock at night. RRP: $599

The Working Mum: RIM BlackBerry Bold

With its excellent QWERTY keyboard, push e-mail capabilities and attractive design, the RIM BlackBerry Bold is a boardroom stalwart. RRP: $999

The Girly Mum: Motorola MOTOROKR U9

If your mum loves girly mags and girly clothes, she may just fall for the lightweight Motorola MOTOROKR U9 with its touch-sensitive controls. At this price, you'll still have enough left over from your Rudd money to buy yourself a phone! RRP: $249

The Rural Mum: Telstra 165i

If your mum lives in a rural area she might appreciate the Telstra 165i. It has a pull-out antenna for enhanced reception and features a semi-ruggedised body. RRP: $529

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
