The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo has a built-in HDMI port and will offer an "exceptional multimedia experience", according to Sony Ericsson. The Android-powered smartphone uses Sony's Bravia graphics engine in order to produce smoother video playback, and also has an Exmor R camera sensor that claims to take better photographs in low light.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo smartphone features a 3.7in display with a resolution of 854x480, an 8-megapixel rear camera that doubles as a 720p HD video recorder, and a 2-megapixel front camera for video calls. The XPERIA Neo is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, has 1GB of RAM but strangely just 320MB of internal memory; though there is a microSD card slot for extra storage. It runs the latest 2.3 Gingerbread version of Google's Android platform.

Telstra hasn't announced when the XPERIA Neo will be launched or how much it will cost. All we know is that it's coming some time in the first half of this year, and will be exclusively sold through Telstra for the first three months of its release.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

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

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.

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.
