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.

The YouTube-Friendly Touch Diamond

At 4 by 2 inches, the candy bar case on the HTC Touch Diamond is about as wide as the Apple iPhone 3G's screen. And at, The svelte (0.45 inch deep) Diamond isn't superthin, but it is slim enough to fit into your pocket. The 2.8-inch VGA touch-screen display provides crisp, bright images; and as with the iPhone 3G, you get an on-screen software keyboard for text input. The Touch Diamond's operating system is Windows Mobile 6.1--but you might not notice that at first glance because you can accomplish many tasks through HTC's customized TouchFLO 3D interface, which puts contacts, text messaging, e-mail, media (video and music), and Internet access at your fingertips. A built-in accelerometer automatically rotates the screen if you tilt the phone on its side. The device is primed for multimedia, too: It has a YouTube application for viewing any YouTube video over cellular or Wi-Fi; its music player handles MP3, AAC, and WMA format audio; and it comes with 4GB of internal memory.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
