We take the hard work out of nabbing a bargain with our roundup of 15 great mobile phone deals!

Nokia E71

Despite being released in 2008, Nokia's E71 remains one of the most popular smartphones on the market, thanks to the combination of a stylish design and great features. The display is a little small, but the E71 features a fantastic keyboard and a stylish look that makes it appealing to business customers as well as regular consumers.

Hot deal: 3 Mobile currently offers the Nokia E71 for $0 on a $49 cap over 24-months.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Nokia's first touch-screen mobile phone, the 5800 XpressMusic packs in plenty of features, and includes a free 12-month subscription to Nokia's Comes with Music service, allowing unlimited music downloads through the Nokia Music Store. Multimedia functionality is excellent, and it is aided by the inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack, FM radio and an 8GB microSD card.

Hot deal: The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is available on the 3 Mobile network for $0 on a $69 cap over 24-months.

RIM BlackBerry Bold

The Bold is the best BlackBerry yet and has very few flaws. A refreshing interface, outstanding display and reasonable multimedia features are just some of what it has to offer. The navigational trackball and QWERTY keyboard are an excellent combination for data entry, and e-mail is as strong as ever.

Hot deal: 3 Mobile recently picked up the BlackBerry Bold and you can have it for $0 on a $79 cap over 24-months. In a special deal, the first 12 months of this contract are billed at $69 per month, saving you $120.

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.

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.

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.
