  • HTC HD2 smartphone

    Let's just get this out of the way first: the HTC HD2 is by far the best Windows Mobile smartphone we've tested. In fact, we'd go as far as saying there is daylight between it and the next best Windows Mobile phone.

  • Nokia N900 smartphone

    Running an advanced, Linux-based operating system called Maemo 5, Nokia's N900 is certainly an interesting device. Foremost an Internet tablet and capable of full multitasking, the Nokia N900 smartphone will definitely impress early adopters and gadget gurus, but for others the experience will feel incomplete and uncomfortable.

  • Telstra Tough T90 mobile phone

    Targeted at tradespeople or those with an active lifestyle, Telstra's Tough T90 mobile phone is designed to take a beating. Water- and dust-proof, and drop tested for shock resistance, the Tough T90 includes a number of handy features.

    Nokia 6760 slide smartphone

    Sporting an unconventional design that houses one of the largest full QWERTY keyboards we've seen on a smartphone, Nokia's 6760 slide is definitely different. Though its compact size and comfortable keyboard are impressive, the 6760 slide has too many faults for us to recommend it.

  • Nokia E72 smartphone

    The Nokia E72 smartphone is a replacement for the popular E71. It's a commendable smartphone and benefits from a few nice improvements, but E71 owners have little incentive to upgrade.

  • LG GD910 watch phone

    LG has seen fit to release a device that looks like it would be at home in a gadget-packed James Bond movie: a watch phone. Boasting 3G connectivity, a full touch-screen interface and 2GB of built-in memory, the LG GD910 is surprisingly intuitive to use for such a small device, but its price tag is simply ridiculous.

  • ASUS UL80Vt notebook

    ASUS' UL80Vt is a 14in notebook that's built for people who want plenty of features and good speed, yet want a laptop that's reasonably light and capable of lasting a long time away from a power outlet. It weighs approximately 2kg and ships with an 8-cell battery, and it comes with a stack of ASUS utilities that allow you to tweak its performance, power profiles and start-up speed.

  • Dell Precision M2400 Mobile Workstation notebook

    Dell's Precision M2400 Mobile Workstation is a 14.1in notebook built for users who desire a powerful yet portable computer on which to run graphic design and engineering applications. It looks big and menacing at first glance, but it's not actually as heavy as it looks.

  • Fujitsu LifeBook T5010 tablet-convertible notebook

    Fujitsu's LifeBook T5010 is a 13.3in tablet-convertible notebook with excellent build quality, good speed and plenty of features. It's powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 CPU, and has a bright touch screen with Wacom's interface technology built in.

  • ASUS Eee PC 1008HA (Seashell) netbook

    When we picked up the ASUS Eee PC 1008HA (or the Seashell, as it is known), we could tell that it was one of the nicest netbooks on the market -- if not the nicest.

  • Sony VAIO CW Series (VPCCW15FGW) notebook

    If there is one overwhelming opinion about the Sony VAIO CW Series (VPCCW15FGW) notebook at PC World, it's that it should not be available in pink. Everyone who saw it in our Test Centre despised the colour, wishing instead for black or white (or even the champagne colour that adorns part of the base). The good news is that the CW Series is available in black or white and it's a fine notebook with plenty to offer.

  • Fujitsu LifeBook P3110 notebook

    The Fujitsu LifeBook P3110 is an 11.6in notebook that's bigger and more powerful than a typical netbook. At only 1.6kg, it's still just as easy to carry around as a 10in netbook, but the increased size makes it more comfortable to use. We think the best thing about the P3110 is its battery life; if you configure your power plan correctly, this notebook could last almost an entire work day without being plugged into a power outlet.

    Lenovo ThinkPad T400s Multitouch notebook

    With the release of Windows 7 and its inbuilt support for multitouch input and gestures, touch-screen computing is gathering steam. Not only can you get all-in-one PCs with touch screens and tablet-convertible notebooks, you can also get regular notebooks equipped with touch-sensitive displays. Lenovo's ThinkPad T400s Multitouch is one such laptop: it features a 14.1in touch screen that can recognise up to four finger inputs.

  • Sony VAIO X Series (VPCX113KGB) notebook

    Sony's VAIO X Series (VPCX113KGB) ultraportable laptop is designed for executives who want something stylish and very light. It has an 11.1in screen, it's made out of carbon fibre and aluminium and it weighs just 655 grams.

  • Asus Eee PC T91 tablet-convertible netbook

    Tablet PCs came out of the closet in record numbers at the recently concluded CES 2010, but Asus had one out for a while. The Asus Eee PC T91 doubles up as a netbook and low-cost tablet PC with touch input support on its 8.9in screen.

  • Maverick Nica Bluetooth Headset

    The Nica by Maverick Lifestyle has one design aspect in common with the Callpod Dragon V2: Both Bluetooth headsets sport earpieces that look like large buttons.

  • Lenovo IdeaPad S12

    By pairing Nvidia's Ion graphics engine with Intel's Atom processor, Lenovo's IdeaPad S12 Multimedia mini is rewriting the rules of how netbooks are made and what they're capable of. The S12 mini -- the first netbook to carry this hardware -- offers a significant performance boost that justifies its $US649 price tag.

  • RIM BlackBerry Storm2 smartphone

    To say RIM's first touch-screen smartphone -- the BlackBerry Storm 9500 -- was a disappointment would be putting it mildly. Despite really wanting to like the original effort (after all, a touch-screen BlackBerry did sound cool), the "clickable" touch screen was clunky, the software was full of issues, there was no Wi-Fi and typing was a frustrating experience. But RIM is now back with a second effort: the BlackBerry Storm2 9520 smartphone

  • Samsung Star (S5230) mobile phone

    Samsung's Star is an entry-level, prepaid mobile phone that features the company's TouchWIZ UI.

  • HTC Tattoo smartphone

    A more affordable version of HTC's Hero, the company's flagship Android smartphone, the HTC Tattoo includes most of the functionality of its bigger brother but has a lower resolution screen.
