Best smartphones for e-mail

We round up the best smartphones for keeping up to date with e-mail

2011 may be all about mobile phone processing power, but business users shopping for a phone are more interested in productivity and communications features -- particularly how a smartphone handles e-mail.

If you're using your smartphone primarily for business use, accessing e-mail while away from the office is an essential tool. With this in mind, a smartphone with strong e-mail credentials needs to possess excellent text input, and the latest wireless connectivity.

We round up the best smartphones for accessing e-mail from top brands including Apple, HTC, BlackBerry, Motorola and Samsung.

Research In Motion BlackBerry Bold 9780

For current BlackBerry users who aren't interested in a touchscreen device, the BlackBerry Bold 9780 comes highly recommended: it possesses a great keyboard, best-in-class e-mail capabilities and a refreshing new interface. However, it offers little incentive for others to switch to the BlackBerry platform.

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.

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.
