    MWg Atom Life review

    8  

    MWg’s Atom Life (£200 inc. VAT) is a mid-range Pocket PC, offering excellent connectivity and plenty of features. But with no hardware keypad, the Atom takes the approach of a traditional PDA.

    Toshiba Portégé G910 review

    9  

    The Toshiba Portégé G910 (£399 inc. VAT) is the successor to the G900 – a Pocket PC offering lots of features for the business user. While its predecessor offered a sliding keypad, the G910 features a clamshell design and leather-look plastics, and looks more like a miniature laptop than a phone.

    In this age of connected devices, there is something almost archaic about the traditional PDA, which has been driven to extinction by the smartphone. However, HP continues to support it for its business customers and the HP iPaq 214 Enterprise (£225 inc. VAT) is the latest iteration.

    The best doodles you ever draw are the ones while you’re on the phone or in the middle of a meeting. Inevitably you had to quickly screw up that bit of paper, but with the G-Note series you can instantly store all your doodles, and boring stuff like minutes of meetings, digitally through this A4 notepad.

    T-Mobile Ameo review

    9  

    Following the launch of the UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC) last year, we've seen a variety of portable products that attempt to offer better usability in a portable package. T-Mobile's Ameo (£80 inc. VAT) sits between the UMPC and Pocket PC, combining 3G connectivity, a 5-inch touchscreen display and a removable QWERTY keyboard.

    Vodafone Blackberry 7100v review

    Even now, email remains the internet's killer application. So wouldn't it be rather compelling if you could receive it as soon as it's sent, just as quickly as you'd get an email at work or on broadband?

    The increasing popularity of smartphones and Pocket PCs has more people than ever browsing the internet on their mobile devices. For those who find the displays on such devices too small, Nokia's 770 Internet Tablet could be the answer

    HP iPaq rw6815 Personal Messenger review

    8  

    HP's iPaq has always offered a good range of features, and excellent usability, but has long been lacking in style. The iPaq rw6815 Personal Messenger (£365 inc. VAT) attempts to address this.

    Keyboard or no keyboard, it's the smartphone designer's conundrum. Sacrifice device or screen size for fast input, or hope consumers will enjoy the large display. With the rw6815 HP has opted for a keyboard-free smartphone and it certainly impresses

    You'll find a great collection of features in HP's new iPaq hw6915. How does this list sound? GPS with navigation software, 1.3-megapixel camera, quadband GSM phone, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, all built into a Windows Mobile device with a physical keyboard...

    Sony Ericsson M600i review

    When you ask a user what they want most from a smartphone, the answer is likely to involve it looking and feeling more like a mobile phone. The M600i satisfies both these requirements

    Weighing just 112 grams, and measuring just 15mm thick, this is by far one of the smallest smartphones we've seen.

    Fujitsu Siemens has been a consistent player in the handheld market, but it has never had a wide range of offerings. With the Pocket LOOX400 series, the company is following Dell's example

    Dell Axim X50 review

    The Dell Axim X50 is by far the most appealing handheld the company has released to date. Weighing in at 167g, the Axim is still on the heavy side, but we found that it sat comfortably in the hand.

    The Dell Axim X30 (£278 inc. VAT) takes the styling of the slightlyolder X3 but brings with it a faster feature set for a similarlyaggressive pricing. That said, the styling of the Axim X30 doesn'tbreak any new ground.

    Acer has announced details of a new PDA in the form of the N50. However, the N30 (£169 inc. VAT) is the only consumer handheld currently available. For those looking for a little more, there is the Acer N35 (£245 inc. VAT) that comes with integrated GPS

    i-mate Jam review

    The problem with Pocket PC smartphones is typically one of bulkiness. Take O2's enduring XDA II, for example. It combines the easy touch 'n' click power of a PDA with the GSM/GPRS connectivity of a mobile phone

    Skipping the Tungsten 4 (the number is considered bad luck in Japan and other Far Eastern countries), PalmOne's latest Tungsten T5 blends the style of the budget Tungsten E with the elongated 65K-colour LCD of the old Tungsten T3
