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.

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.
