Nokia's 5730 XpressMusic is the latest addition to the company's music range of mobile phones. Featuring all the perks of a modern handset, including Internet access, a Facebook application, Google Maps, GPS, instant messaging, 3G connectivity, and a 3.2-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, the 5730 XpressMusic is clearly a winner.
The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic has a funky design, with glossy black and red casing. The phone has a standard keypad and navigation wheel, with shuffle buttons along the side for skipping, stopping and playing music.
The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic's form factor is the classic candy bar, but the phone also slides sideways to reveal a QWERTY keyboard. Although buttons are spaced apart and illuminated well, the keys' texture makes them difficult to feel. In addition, your thumb gets a tad cramped when using the keyboard.
Nokia has long been known for making simple-to-use and sturdy phones and the 5730 XpressMusic is a good example.
A pair of noise-cancelling ear buds is included in the sales package, and their sound is crisp and clear. Thankfully, the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, so you have the option of using any set of headphones you like. Continuing the music theme is the inclusion of an FM radio; reception is clear and navigation between stations is straightforward.
Nokia has packed plenty of features into the 5730XpressMusic without compromising size or performance. AccuWeather.com, RealPlayer, GPS, podcasting, access to Nokia's music store, a voice recorder and a Facebook application are all included.
Audio on the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic when making and receiving calls is clear and volume can be adjusted with the side-mounted controls.
Battery life is impressive considering the number of features crammed into the phone. Overall, the 5730 is a great addition to the XpressMusic mobile phone range. Anyone who likes their music and phone bundled together should take a look at it.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
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.
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.
