Check out our guide to the best upcoming tablets in 2011 and the best upcoming smartphones in 2011.

Titled "Coming to a (small) screen near you: The year ahead in mobile tech", the blog by Telstra's Executive Director of mobile products Warwick Bray specifically mentions the Motorola Atrix, which can be teamed with an all-in-one keyboard and 11-inch screen accessory that transforms the phone into a full laptop. The Atrix laptop dock runs by tapping the phone's processor, memory and mobile Internet connection.

The Motorola Atrix was first announced at CES 2011 and is an Android smartphone equipped with a dual-core processor that runs Android 2.2, has a full HTML 5 browser, and supports HD video. Along with a 1GHz dual-core processor, the Atrix also has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a "gHD" display, a fingerprint reader, and a 1930-mAh battery.

Along with the Atrix, Bray also expects smartphones running dual core processors, and bigger, brighter screens, and a new range of tablets with screens ranging from seven to 11 inches. "We saw some very impressive Next G compatible tablets running upcoming Google Android software. Watch this space."

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
