Claiming to "set a new standard for entry-level smartphones", the HTC Desire 300 has a 4.3in screen, runs the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor.

However, the phone lacks 4G connectivity, has just 512MB of RAM and only boasts 4GB of internal memory. A microSD card slot does allow users to expand the on-board memory.

Telstra's Director of Devices, Andrew Volard, said the HTC Desire 300 will be an ideal stocking filler for the upcoming Christmas season.

"The HTC Desire 300 is a great addition to the HTC family at Telstra and I’m sure it will be a popular choice for customers who are after a high-quality but affordable pre-paid smartphone, particularly coming into the festive season."

The Desire 300 will include the company's BlinkFeed software feature, which constantly streams personalised content from various sources to the home screen.

The HTC Desire 300 will retail for $179, and will be sold exclusively in Australia through Telstra.

It will be available in stores and online from Tuesday, 29 October.

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.
