Microsoft's new Windows Phone 7 platform also offers plenty to get excited about. We round-up the best mobile phones on the market this Christmas.

HTC 7 Mozart

The HTC 7 Mozart smartphone may have limited internal memory, but its unibody design and the slick user interface of Microsoft Windows Phone 7 make it an attractive proposition -- even if its display lacks the wow factor of the competing Samsung Omnia 7.

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.
