Top 5: Mobile phone movie madness

We count down the best of the worst mobile phone scenes that have hit the big screen.

Tomorrow Never Dies

The Bond franchise is known for its extravagant gadgets from Q, so much so that 007 purists went ape when the MI6 gadgetry mastermind and other clichés were left out of the latest Bond movies. But if history can teach us anything, maybe this was for the best. Case in point: Tomorrow Never Dies.
Pierce Brosnan was the tool for Ericsson's marketing in the 1997 Bond film. Rather than being a typical one-off, disposable gadget like those from prior films, the Ericsson phone just kept coming back to wreak as much havoc as possible. The phone in question doubled as a stun gun, fingerprint scanner and fingerprint mimicking device, lock pick and, last but not least, a remote control featuring a steering pad and front and rear view monitor for a fancy, rocket-equipped BMW.
Oh, wait! And a screwdriver!

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.
