What's the best BlackBerry smartphone?

The five best BlackBerry smartphones

1. BlackBerry Z10

Rating: Reviewed on: 21 March 13RRP: £579 inc. VAT

The design and build quality of the Z10 just makes it seem like a cheap plastic iPhone to us. Hardware is reasonable with the screen being the stand out feature and the BlackBerry 10 software makes this the most attractive BlackBerry smartphone to date. However, given the price, the iPhone or a decent Android handset is still a preferable option.

2. BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900

Rating: Reviewed on: 28 October 11RRP: £209 inc. VAT

The Bold series gets a much needed facelift in design and extra power under the hood.

3. BlackBerry Torch

Rating: Reviewed on: 12 December 11RRP: £250 inc. VAT

Overall, RIM may have done too little with the Torch. It offers the same core features as other BlackBerry 7 smartphones, but the single home screen looks bare when compared to the multiple-screen, widget-supporting offerings of competitors.

4. Blackberry Bold 9790

Rating: Reviewed on: 10 January 12RRP: £265 inc. VAT

The Bold 9790 is a business smartphone running Blackberry OS 7 featuring a touchscreen and a QWERTY keypad.

5. BlackBerry Curve 9320

Rating: Reviewed on: 28 May 12RRP: £104 inc. VAT

A cheap-and-cheerful BlackBerry smartphone, there's lot to like about the BlackBerry Curve 9320, although you do get what you pay for.

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.

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.
