LG Renoir (KC910)

Undoubtedly the best camera phone we've reviewed, LG's 8-megapixel Renoir is a superb handset. In addition to a responsive touch-screen interface, the Renoir is an impressive multimedia mobile phone, boasting Dolby Mobile sound, an FM radio and DviX/Xvid playback. LG's insistence on a proprietary headphone/charging jack is a shame, but Wi-Fi, built-in GPS and HSPDA capabilities make up for it.

Hot deal: It's hard to believe that you can grab the LG Renoir on Virgin Mobile for just $0 on a $29 cap over 24 months. Online purchasers will be pleased to know that $29 bonus credit will be applied on their bill within two weeks of activation.

Sony Ericsson C902

Sony Ericsson's C902 is one of the more stylish candybar phones on the market, and even played a cameo role in the latest James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. It boasts a 5-megapixel camera with face-detection technology, autofocus and flash, with a unique sliding camera cover adding to the Cyber-shot experience.

Hot deal: Virgin Mobile has the Sony Ericsson C902 for $0 on a 45 cap plan over 24 months.

Motorola EM330

Motorola's EM330 may be affordable, but if there is one thing the EM330 isn't, it's stylish. This mobile phone commands a ridiculously low price and is packed with plenty of multimedia features, headed by an MP3 player and an FM radio. Both these features work in tandem with the external display, which features touch-sensitive music controls that are displayed when the radio or music player is active.

Hot deal: If you're really on budget, you can pick up the EM330 for $99 on a Virgin Mobile prepaid plan. All Virgin Mobile prepaid plans purchased online come with $5 Free to V credit to be used in the first 30 days.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.

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.

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.
