Cool mobile phones that are coming soon

Nifty designs, snazzy interfaces, and music and video galore: We give you the skinny on a dozen trend-setting mobile phone models that are slated to debut soon in the US and elsewhere.

A Touch-Screen Phone With Optical Mouse Navigation

Another competitor to the ubiquitous iPhone is the Samsung Omnia, powered by Windows Mobile 6.1. This model is 100 percent touch screen, but it includes an optical mouse for navigation. Samsung joins the ranks of mobile phone manufacturers that have customized their own variations on Windows Mobile 6.1: The Omnia includes Samsung's TouchWiz user interface, which enables users to personalize their home screen. The Omnia comes with Microsoft Office Mobile, GPS, and a 5-megapixel camera; it is available with a capacity of 8GB or 16GB, with an extendable slot. The 3.2-inch WQVGA LCD screen on the Omnia is slightly smaller than the iPhone's 3.5-inch screen, but it's larger than the 2.8-inch screen of the HTC Touch Diamond.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
