Best Frivolous Curio: NV Mobile Sapphire (RRP: $999)



We’d normally hesitate to recommend the NV Mobile Sapphire, but if you’re looking to spend your tax bonus on something novel and interesting, it may be worth a look.

This gaudy 1970s-style gold watch is actually a Tri Band GSM smartphone complete with a touch screen and inbuilt camera. The device also packs in a number of multimedia features, including an image viewer, video recorder, audio player, sound recorder and VGA camera. While not without its flaws (call quality isn’t stellar and the design is too chunky), it remains an intriguing proposition for gizmo-obsessed eccentrics.

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.
