CEBIT - BenQ's new phones include Windows Mobile 5.0 PDA

BenQ introduced six new phones, including one that runs Windows Mobile 5.0.

BenQ Mobile GmbH & Co. OHG introduced six new mobile phones at the Cebit trade show in Germany on Wednesday, including the P51, a Windows Mobile 5.0 device.

The P51 includes Wi-Fi and comes pre-loaded with Skype so that users can make voice-over-IP calls over Wi-Fi networks. The device features a Qwerty keyboard, GPS (Global Positioning System) and 128MB of built-in memory. The Windows Mobile software includes Powerpoint and allows users to receive push e-mail from their corporate e-mail accounts. The P51 is expected to become available in the third quarter.

The EL71, another new handset, is a slider phone featuring a metal finish and designed for the "young professional," BenQ said. Other new handsets it introduced include the CF61, a consumer-oriented phone with a music player, Bluetooth and exchangeable covers, and the C81, a multimedia phone with a larger-than-usual speaker for better audio, BenQ said

BenQ also announced that it would preinstall a Google search bar on some handsets. The announcement follows similar deals over the past few months between Google and other handset vendors and operators.

BenQ also launched a service that will allow its customers to wirelessly update the software on their phones. It will provide people with more ways to configure and personalize their phones, BenQ said.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

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.
