Nokia N810 Internet Tablet

Nokia's latest Internet tablet boasts a convenient slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a built-in GPS receiver and a stunning 4.1in touch-screen display. Although this device won't appeal to everyone, early adopters and gadget-keen consumers are sure to be impressed.

HP iPAQ 212

Although smartphones have emerged as the ideal mobile device in recent years, there are still many consumers who would prefer to keep their phone separate. Sporting a gorgeous VGA display and dual memory card slots, HP's latest enterprise PDA is ideal for both business and entertainment use.

HP iPAQ 112

In an age where your phone is also your computer...as well as your GPS, and your MP3 player and hopefully soon your all-in-one breakfast maker, you could be forgiven for thinking that the lowly PDA has had its time. However, there is still a small group of people who prefer to have a fully fledged PDA in addition to their other devices, and HP are catering for this niche nicely with their latest iPAQ the 112.

HP iPAQ 312 Travel Companion

HP's iPAQ 312 is a strange device. Fitting somewhere between a PDA, a GPS and a mobile phone accessory, this unit packs in GPS functionality with some entertainment tools and Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity to create what HP has dubbed as the 'Travel Companion'.

ASUS MyPal A696

It has been relatively quiet on the PDA front of late, but ASUS still believes there is life in this category yet with the release of their GPS-equipped MyPal A696. Sporting a brushed metal design, a SiRF Star III GPS chipset and a 3.5in anti-glare display, the A696 is unfortunately hindered by running Windows Mobile 5, instead of the latest 6.0 version - though the latest batch of units boast the Windows Mobile 6 upgrade.

HP iPAQ rx5765

Satnav, a feature that was once found only in the most expensive cars, is increasingly crammed on to the screens of smart phones and PDAs and hidden beneath the passenger seat of rusty bangers.

HP iPAQ rx5965

Designed by Hewlett-Packard as a 'Travel Companion', the iPAQ rx5965 is the upgraded model to the previous line of PDA's, consisting of the [[prodid:2671]] and [[prodid:2653]]. The rx5965 adds GPS navigation using TomTom software to an already enticing multimedia package.

HP iPAQ rx4240

Pitched as a 'Mobile Media Companion', the iPAQ rx4240 is HP's latest attempt at breathing new life into the increasingly flagging PDA market. With portable media player sales booming, it makes sense for HP to push the rx4240's multimedia capabilities over its productivity features.

HP iPAQ rx4540

Pitched as a 'Mobile Media Companion', the iPAQ rx4540 is HP's latest attempt at breathing new life into the increasingly flagging PDA market. With portable media player sales booming, it makes sense for HP to push the rx4540's multimedia capabilities over its productivity features.

Symbol Technologies MC50

The MC50 from Symbol Technologies is directly targeted at medium to large enterprise consumers to cater for mobile computing applications. Symbol is best known for their data scanning and reading products, and the MC50 continues this theme, one version shipping with an inbuilt data scanner.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
