Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo preview: The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo has an HDMI-out port for connection to the latest high definition TVs

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play may have received most of the attention so far this year, but Sony Ericsson is intent on expanding the entire XPERIA range of Android phones. The latest handset is the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo, which is geared towards entertainment and has a built-in HDMI-out port.

Featuring a similar design to Sony Ericsson's disappointing Vivaz smartphone, the XPERIA Neo is claimed to offer an "exceptional multimedia experience." The Android-powered smartphone uses Sony's Bravia graphics engine in order to produce smoother video playback, and has an Exmor R camera sensor that should take better photographs in dim light. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo also has a built-in HDMI-out port, allowing the phone to connect to a high-definition television to view multimedia content.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo smartphone features a 3.7in display with a resolution of 854x480, an 8-megapixel rear camera that doubles as a 720p HD video recorder, and a 2-megapixel front camera for video calls. The XPERIA Neo is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and has 1GB of RAM but strangely just 320MB of internal memory; there is a microSD card slot for extra storage.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo Android phone is constructed of glossy plastic and features a curved design. It runs the 2.3 Gingerbread version of Google's Android platform.

Telstra has confirmed it will exclusively launch the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo Android phone in Australia in the "first half of 2011". Pricing has yet to be announced.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
