The HTC Snap is one of three new Windows Mobile smartphones to launch in Australia today.

HTC Australia today announced the launch of three new smartphones: the HTC Snap, the HTC Touch Diamond 2 and the HTC Touch Pro 2.

Running the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system, the HTC Touch Diamond 2 and HTC Touch Pro 2 are full touch-screen smartphones, with the Touch Pro 2 also featuring a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The HTC Snap is a non-touch-screen smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard.

Among the HTC-exclusive features of the Touch Diamond 2 and Touch Pro 2 are the TouchFLO 3D user interface, a unified contacts list that provides a single contact view for text, voice or e-mail conversations and "push" Internet that preloads commonly accessed Web pages. The HTC Snap features a function dubbed "inner circle", allowing users to quickly see e-mails from up to 10 preselected favourite contacts without having to search or scroll through long lists.

"These three unique HTC devices focus around simplifying how we communicate, and will challenge and exceed your expectations around what a typical 'business' phone is capable of achieving," said Anthony Petts of HTC.

The HTC Snap and HTC Touch Pro 2 will initially launch on Telstra, while the HTC Touch Diamond 2 will be available first on Optus. Pricing and plan details are yet to be announced.

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.
