Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini Pro

Many people will find the XPERIA X10 Mini Pro too small. However, we found it to be a quirky but compelling handset. Sony Ericsson deserves a lot of credit for an excellent UI and a great physical keyboard, not to mention the fact that this is a fully fledged Android smartphone that doesn't skimp on the features found on larger, more expensive devices.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
