Motorola MOTOSURF A3100

Motorola's MOTOSURF A3100 is a Windows Mobile smartphone that is surprisingly intuitive to use. The screen is poor when compared to other phones and text entry will frustrate, but the TelstraOne Experience and Moto Homescreen skins make this a pleasant experience on the whole. Exclusive to Telstra, the MOTOSURF A3100 features a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, a 3-megapixel camera with flash, and has the A2DP Bluetooth profile for wireless audio streaming.

Hot deal: Telstra offers the Motorola MOTOSURF A3100 smartphone for $0 on a $60 phone plan over 24 months. A special online offer allows purchasers to receive $50 free credit with this deal, and Telstra also bundles a bonus MOTOSURF A3100 Premium Accessory Pack valued at $149.95 — the pack includes a Motorola H780 Bluetooth headset, a car charger and two styluses.

Samsung F480T

Samsung's F480T is a mid-range touch-screen phone that uses widgets and a customisable drag-and-drop interface. The F480T is attractive and comfortable to hold and its glossy, mirror-style finish certainly impresses. Text messaging is surprisingly efficient, and this phone packs in plenty of features as well, including full access to the Next G range of content and services (Mobile FOXTEL, BigPond TV and WhereIs Mobile amongst them), a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, an FM radio with RDS support and a music player.

Hot deal: The Samsung F480T can be purchased for $0 on a $40 phone plan over 24 months from Telstra. A special online offer allows purchasers to receive $50 free credit with this deal.

Sony Ericsson C510

A feature-packed yet affordable 3G mobile phone, Sony Ericsson's C510 Cyber-shot boasts a 3.2-megapixel camera with sliding lens cover, a dual-LED flash and HSDPA connectivity. Although it doesn't wow with exciting new features, the C510 is great value for money.

Hot deal: You can grab yourself a bargain and get your hands on the C510 with Telstra for $0 on a $40 plan over 24 months. Once again, Telstra offers online customers $50 free credit with this deal.

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.

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.

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.
