O2 Xda IIs

The second model in the Xda II range, the O2 Xda IIs offers users an extensive array of features, delivering both a fully featured mobile phone and PDA.

Navman iCN520

Portability is the biggest advantage of the Navman iCN520, which offers a comprehensive set of the navigation features in a compact frame. The drawback of smaller units like the iCN 520 is that they require a stylus for input, which is just about imp...

Sony announce 10.3 megapixel camera

Sony has just announced two new digital cameras in their Cybershot range, including the Cybershot DSCR1 which clocks in at a massive 10.3 megapixels. The DSCR1 features a large APC-class image CMOS sensor (21.5 x 14.4mm) which is the first of its ...

Navman iCN 635

While Navman has impressed us in the past with its GPS navigation products, the Navman iCN 635 doesn't live up to the same standard as many of its other products. It lacks an LCD touch screen, and internal battery and is housed inside a heavy and bul...

Panasonic DMR-EH60

Having been so impressed with Panasonic's DMR-ES30 combo DVD recorder and VHS player, we were looking forward to seeing what Panasonic could do with a hard disk in the box. Sadly, the answer is not much more than it does without one. Rather than take...

Toshiba SD63HK

Toshiba's SD63HK home theatre kit offers just about everything you need to set up your own home cinema (except a screen). The small system was designed by KOI and features four satellite speakers, a centre speaker, subwoofer and DVD player.

Samsung SGH-E820T

The bulky Samsung SGH-E820T Push to Talk (PTT) phone won't win any prizes for looks, and with its limited functionality, poorly laid-out controls and lack of multimedia options, this is one unit to steer clear of.

Samsung SGH-E720

While the tri-band Samsung SGH-E720 impressed us with its bright LCD screen, 1 megapixel camera and cleverly designed interface, this multimedia phone lacks some key functions.

Nokia 6230i

Nokia dominates the phone market in Australia and with good reason: it continues to produce quality mobiles such as the 6230i, which boasts a 1.3 megapixel camera, a simple graphical interface and expandable memory.

Motorola V635

The quad-band V635 features a colour screen, MP3 player, 1.2 megapixel camera and video capture in a clamshell design. Weighing 133g (which is rather heavy for phones this small) and measuring 49 x 89 x 25mm, the V635 is a sturdy and compact unit tha...

Motorola ROKR E1

Much of the apparent disappointment with the long-awaited Motorola ROKR E1 stems from the fact that many consumers were expecting a true 'iPod Phone'. While we feel Motorola have produced a worthwhile standalone phone, this attempted fusion of mobile...

Samsung SGH-E730

Marketed as the Fifth Fantastic, the stylish Samsung SGH-E730 is an update to the popular SGH-E720, with an improved 1.3 megapixel camera, increased Bluetooth speed and new FM radio tuner function. But once again, no memory expansion slot is provided...

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.

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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.
