First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Best alternatives to the iPhone
- — 20 September, 2010 14:10
Apple's iPhone 4 has finally hit our shores, but the popular smartphone isn't for everyone. Believe it or not, there are plenty of valid alternatives in the world of mobile phones!
Once upon a time the iPhone was a device so sought after that you could walk down the street carrying one and receive any number admiring stares. Fast forward to 2010 and your Apple smartphone is "just another iPhone." After all, it is just one of more than 85 million iPhone and iPod Touch devices that Apple has sold worldwide since its launch in 2007, according to the latest IDC figures.
With this in mind, shouldn't you dare to be different? Don't you want to have a new, cool phone that nobody else has? If you want a capable touchscreen smartphone with all the latest features minus the Apple logo, check out the best phones that aren't the iPhone.
7 / 8
The Nokia N900 is best classified as an interesting but ultimately incomplete device. The Linux-based Maemo 5 OS does some things superbly and others poorly. This smartphone offers one of the best mobile Web experiences available but there is plenty of room for improvement elsewhere. Watch this space.
