Mother's Day is rapidly approaching. If you think your mum needs a new mobile phone, then check out our handy guide to some of the best handsets for every kind of mother.

The Trendy Mum: Apple iPhone 3G

If your mum loves music and knows the difference between AAC and MP3 files, the Apple iPhone 3G might be for her. Offering 8GB or 16GB of data storage for music and videos, and great mobile Internet access, it's still one of the hottest phones on the market almost a year after being released!

The Active Mum: Sonim XP3 Enduro mobile phone

If you've got a mum that loves the outdoors, then she might appreciate the Sonim XP3 Enduro: one of the toughest mobile phones on the market. Waterproof, rugged and easy to use, it'll survive plenty of falls and bumps before it kicks the bucket. The built-in LED light is handy when you're trying to fit a key in a lock at night. RRP: $599

The Working Mum: RIM BlackBerry Bold

With its excellent QWERTY keyboard, push e-mail capabilities and attractive design, the RIM BlackBerry Bold is a boardroom stalwart. RRP: $999

The Girly Mum: Motorola MOTOROKR U9

If your mum loves girly mags and girly clothes, she may just fall for the lightweight Motorola MOTOROKR U9 with its touch-sensitive controls. At this price, you'll still have enough left over from your Rudd money to buy yourself a phone! RRP: $249

The Rural Mum: Telstra 165i

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Aysha Strobbe

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
