The Moto E is pitched as a replacement to internet-deficient feature phones. Research firm IDC estimates 70 per cent of phone users continue to use feature phones due to the prohibitive $358 price of the average smartphone.

The Moto E will sell for $179 in Australia when it released in “early July”. Features include a 4.3in, 540x960 resolution screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and support for microSD memory cards up to 32GB.

The Android smartphone will run 4.4 KitKat, support dual-SIM cards, have a 3G modem, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1980 milliamp-hour battery.

Motorola is also launching a revised version of the Motorola Moto G. The top-of-the-range Moto G will come as a single-SIM 4G device compatible with microSD memory. Noteworthy specifications include a high definition 4.5in screen, a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and a 5MP rear camera.

The Moto G has become the “best-selling smartphone in Motorola’s history” since its January 2014 release, it said in the company’s statement.

The new smartphones are scheduled for a release in “early July”. The Good guys previously listed the smartphones being available from 1 July; however, the webpages have since been removed.

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.
