Kyocera KX440

Though they look and act like regular mobile phones, Kyocera's KX440s have several features that set them apart from the crowd. The most obvious is a rugged chassis that can take a little rough-and-tumble (Kyocera claims that this is their most reliable handset). The KX440s also have push-to-talk (PTT) functionality that lets them function like walkie-talkies without the range limitations.

Group calling means you can address several people at the same time, and hands-free "barge" calls mean that you can receive incoming communications without having to answer the phone - which could be handy if the call receiver's hands are full.

Talk time tops out around three hours, and you get all the features you'd expect from a regular mid-range mobile phone: polyphone ring tones, games, colour display, predictive text, WAP-compatibility and PDA functions, plus CDMA 1X data transfer.

Consumers would probably look for something a little sexier, but businesses who want reliability and group-calling PTT features should give this one a look.

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.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

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.
