Mobile phones: best of the best!

Your guide to getting the best.

Every mobile phone manufacturer has their ultimate model, the pinnacle of their engineering (and marketing) skills which they parade to the world. However, the handsets themselves are quite diverse, meaning there are a variety of feature-packed, stylish phones that are almost too good to give up, provided you have the cash. If you are looking for a new geek toy you can wow your friends with, here are some of the options available from the major mobile players.

Apple iPhone 3G

Apple iPhone 3G

This is an obligatory mention, so we will get it out of the way first. Of course, Apple only offers one mobile phone so it is the company’s best and brightest by default. Nevertheless, Apple has set the bar quite high with the iPhone 3G, building a solid phone with an intuitive interface based on the company’s own desktop operating system. It is a mobile powerhouse that is constantly being touted as a rival to mobile gaming platforms like the PlayStation Portable and the Nintendo DS, and it has plenty of features.

You are likely to get as many sneers as you will get “wows” from friends and strangers when you pull out the iPhone 3G — it has become the ultimate “love it or hate it” handset. The argument has ensued since January 2007 when the original iPhone was first revealed. Five months after the 3G version's local launch, however, there is still reasonable consumer demand and the iPhone 3G a must-have for any Apple fan. Sure, you can get more functionality from other mobile phones, but with Google's Android yet to make an appearance and the BlackBerry OS not appealing to everyone, the iPhone 3G is the only viable alternative to a Windows Mobile device for some.

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.
