The Nokia C6-01 — not to be confused with the older, QWERTY-keyboard-equipped C6 — is a new "compact" full touchscreen smartphone that runs the latest version of Nokia's Symbian operating system, Symbian^3.

The Nokia C6-01 boasts a 3.2in AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, and also utilises a ClearBlack Display (CBD). Nokia claims the CBD offers a higher-than-standard contrast and has a polarising filter that cuts out the reflections that interfere with legibility. The company also states that the CBD will offer much better performance for use in direct sunlight, and that it is also more power efficient.

The CBD will compete directly with the "Super AMOLED" display used on the Samsung Galaxy S and the IPS "retina" display seen on the Apple iPhone 4, but its 640x360 resolution is lower than both of these competitors.

The Nokia C6-01's features include an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, 720p HD video recording, a microSD card slot that will accept cards up to 32GB in size along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. The Nokia C6-01 will also ship with Nokia's Ovi Maps application which provides free full turn-by-turn navigation for the lifetime of the device.

The Nokia C6-01 is not expected to launch in Australia until early 2011. Pricing is yet to be announced.

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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

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.
