Windows-based smart phone

The MPx200’s clamshell design allows a large screen and big, usable buttons. There’s also an external display so you can see who’s calling and direct unwanted calls straight to voicemail without opening up the device.

Motorola has simplified the external button layout, with just an up and down rocker switch and power button. When making a call, the rocker adjusts the volume of the earpiece.

The Windows Mobile Software looks great on one of the clearest and brightest screens ever to grace a mobile phone. There’s a four-way navigation pad with a button in the middle to select, making it easy to move around the interface. There are also two soft buttons that correspond to prompts on the bottom left and right of the screen, plus dedicated back and home keys.

An infrared port on the side of the Motorola means it’s handy if you want to connect the handset to an infrared-equipped notebook. You’ll also find a Secure Digital card slot for expansion.

There’s only one port at the bottom of the device that serves for both battery charging and PC connection. A full charge lasted the weekend when using the phone moderately. The omission of a camera may or may not bother you, depending on how useful you consider this feature. The MPx200 is expensive even with a new contract, but if you want the best you won’t be disappointed.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
