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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

Andrew Grant

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / 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.

Aysha Strobbe

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
