Palm Centro

The first smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard to be sold in Australia on pre-paid, the Centro represents a new approach by Palm. This compact and sleek handset has been designed for people who have never used a smartphone before. Despite its aggre...

Griffin iTrip with SmartScan

Although its operation is almost identical to its big brother, the Griffin RoadTrip, the Griffin iTrip Auto features a slightly different design. The iTrip consists of a simple wire that connects from your iPod to the cigarette lighter, rather than a...

Samsung J700

Although looking similar to the 5-megapixel Samsung G600, the J700 is a totally different kettle of fish. This basic GSM slider is aimed at the low-end of the market and it provides reasonable bang for your buck.

Samsung J750

A compact and stylish slider, Samsung's J750 has a reasonable list of features for a competitive asking price. Unfortunately, it is let down by a frustratingly slow user interface.

LG Shine Slide (KE970)

A GSM version of the popular and stylish LG Shine (KU970), the Shine Slide (KE970) is targeted at those on a budget who may not necessarily need 3G capabilities, but like the mirror-style design.

Samsung i560

The second Samsung phone launched in Australia running a Symbian operating system, the HSDPA-capable i560 offers a sleek and stylish design with the added feature of in-car navigation. A built-in GPS receiver and Route 66 mapping software, along with...

Philips Active Crystals SWS2000

The result of a partnership between Philips and Swarovski, the Active Crystals SWS2000 earphones feature cut silver-shade crystals embedded into the design. Although they are targeted at fashionistas, they perform well in terms of sound quality.

Griffin RoadTrip with SmartScan

An FM transmitter featuring a convenient flexible neck, Griffin's latest RoadTrip comes with SmartScan, a feature that automatically searches for the best three frequencies and saves them as presets.

Nokia WH-600

Nokia's latest stereo headset is stylish and comfortable, and it offers reasonable sound quality to boot. The headset also performs well for phone calls, featuring in-line volume and call controls as well as a microphone.

i-mate Ultimate 8502

The second smartphone from i-mate to feature HSUPA, the Ultimate 8502 has a feature set similar to the Ultimate 9502 but with the convenience of a much smaller frame.

In pictures: Upcoming Motorola releases

It's been a little quiet on the Motorola front since the launch of the now iconic MOTORAZR2. Rest assured, however, the company haven't slipped off the radar: it's planning a multitude of releases in Q2 and Q3 of 2008. Among these are the E8, the U9 ...

Cygnett GrooveZone

Featuring a "funky moulded retro design" and claiming to provide an acoustically stable listening environment, Cygnett's GrooveZone headphones are supposed to deliver quality sound. They fall somewhat short of achieving this, but the noise cancelling...

HTC P3470

A well designed, affordable and compact smart phone running Windows Mobile 6 and featuring built in-GPS -- so, what's the catch? HTC's P3470 is certainly an interesting device but the lack of 3G connectivity and Wi-Fi is a major let-down.

Jabra BT2020

Featuring a strange behind-the-ear design, Jabra's BT2020 is a solid budget Bluetooth headset that offers reasonable voice quality.

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.
