Samsung UltraTouch (S8300)

The Samsung UltraTouch is a full touch-screen mobile phone that also features a physical slide-out keypad. This stylish slider phone is a great option for consumers who may be intrigued by touch-screen technology but aren't ready to throw away the familiar physical keys just yet. A great and amusing feature of the UltraTouch is Samsung's Fake Call application, helping you get out of awkward situations by simulating a phone call and playing back a pre-recorded voice message when answered.

Hot deal: The Samsung UltraTouch is available on the Vodafone network for $0 on a $69 cap over 24 months. People who purchase this deal online will receive a free digital photo frame.

LG Arena (KM900)

LG's Arena is one of the hottest phones to launch in 2009, thanks to its unique S-Class 3D user interface. According to LG, the new interface is the result of more than two years of extensive consumer research. In addition to an all new look and feel under the hood, the Arena boasts HSDPA capabilities, extensive multimedia functions, Wi-Fi and built-in GPS. The amount of storage on offer is also impressive: 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports cards of up to 32GB.

Hot deal: Vodafone offers the LG Arena for $0 on a $99 cap over 24 months. Online purchasers receive the first three months of the contract free of charge.

Sony Ericsson W715

Sony Ericsson's W715 Walkman phone is a similar handset to the W705, with the exception of built-in GPS, Vodafone-exclusive branding, and the addition of the Wayfinder Navigator application. The W715 is a stylish slider with a 'galactic black' design. It offers access to the Vodafone Live! content portal and of course boasts excellent music capabilities thanks to the on-board Walkman software.

Hot deal: Grab the Sony Ericsson W715 through Vodafone for $0 on a $49 cap over 24 months.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


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


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


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.
