The evleaks Twitter account, which has a solid track record when it comes to publishing rumours, has also suggested the device will officially be unveiled on Friday, 1 November.

The white version of the Nexus 5 appears to follow the same design as the Nexus 4, utilising a white finish on the back, but a remaining black on both the front and sides.

While the Nexus 5 is yet to be officially unveiled, a number of leaks have been published over the past few weeks.

The phone is expected to have a 4.95in, full HD IPS display, will be powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, and will have 2GB of RAM.

The Nexus 5 will also come with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS), a front-facing 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, and a 2300mAh battery.

Like most Nexus devices, the Nexus 5 will not have removable storage. It will be available in 16GB and 32GB models, an upgrade over the Nexus 4's 8GB and 16GB options.

The biggest technical addition to the Nexus 5 will be 4G-connectivity, a feature that was lacking in the Nexus 4.

Last week, the Nexus 5 briefly appeared on the US Google Play Store before disappearing very quickly. US Web site The Verge reported that the phone was listed for US$349, which was the same price the 16GB model Nexus 4 sold for when it debuted last year.

So it will be either the Nexus 5, Nokia 925 or the Z10 BB. If Google does the usual no release in Oz for 4 weeks after the USA release then I will look again at the last 2.

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.
