Nokia E71

Despite being released in 2008, Nokia's E71 remains one of the most popular smartphones on the market, thanks to the combination of a stylish design and great features. The display is a little small, but the E71 features a fantastic keyboard and a stylish look that makes it appealing to business customers as well as regular consumers.

Hot deal: 3 Mobile currently offers the Nokia E71 for $0 on a $49 cap over 24-months.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Nokia's first touch-screen mobile phone, the 5800 XpressMusic packs in plenty of features, and includes a free 12-month subscription to Nokia's Comes with Music service, allowing unlimited music downloads through the Nokia Music Store. Multimedia functionality is excellent, and it is aided by the inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack, FM radio and an 8GB microSD card.

Hot deal: The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is available on the 3 Mobile network for $0 on a $69 cap over 24-months.

RIM BlackBerry Bold

The Bold is the best BlackBerry yet and has very few flaws. A refreshing interface, outstanding display and reasonable multimedia features are just some of what it has to offer. The navigational trackball and QWERTY keyboard are an excellent combination for data entry, and e-mail is as strong as ever.

Hot deal: 3 Mobile recently picked up the BlackBerry Bold and you can have it for $0 on a $79 cap over 24-months. In a special deal, the first 12 months of this contract are billed at $69 per month, saving you $120.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
