LG Renoir (KC910)

Undoubtedly the best camera phone we've reviewed, LG's 8-megapixel Renoir is a superb handset. In addition to a responsive touch-screen interface, the Renoir is an impressive multimedia mobile phone, boasting Dolby Mobile sound, an FM radio and DviX/Xvid playback. LG's insistence on a proprietary headphone/charging jack is a shame, but Wi-Fi, built-in GPS and HSPDA capabilities make up for it.

Hot deal: It's hard to believe that you can grab the LG Renoir on Virgin Mobile for just $0 on a $29 cap over 24 months. Online purchasers will be pleased to know that $29 bonus credit will be applied on their bill within two weeks of activation.

Sony Ericsson C902

Sony Ericsson's C902 is one of the more stylish candybar phones on the market, and even played a cameo role in the latest James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. It boasts a 5-megapixel camera with face-detection technology, autofocus and flash, with a unique sliding camera cover adding to the Cyber-shot experience.

Hot deal: Virgin Mobile has the Sony Ericsson C902 for $0 on a 45 cap plan over 24 months.

Motorola EM330

Motorola's EM330 may be affordable, but if there is one thing the EM330 isn't, it's stylish. This mobile phone commands a ridiculously low price and is packed with plenty of multimedia features, headed by an MP3 player and an FM radio. Both these features work in tandem with the external display, which features touch-sensitive music controls that are displayed when the radio or music player is active.

Hot deal: If you're really on budget, you can pick up the EM330 for $99 on a Virgin Mobile prepaid plan. All Virgin Mobile prepaid plans purchased online come with $5 Free to V credit to be used in the first 30 days.

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.
