    Nokia 5200 review

    8  

    Music phones are nothing new these days and almost everything from mid-range upwards will have some kind of MP3 or digital music player onboard. However, dedicated music phones like this one are really starting to emerge as a force to be reckoned with

    LG U830 review

    9  

    Resistance seems to be futile. Everyone who sees and touches it can't help but be seduced by the Chocolate phone. LG's sleek, smooth, dark sliderphone handset was one of the sales sensation of 2006; now it comes in clamshell flavour

    Motorola MOTORAZR maxx review

    9  

    By any stretch of the imagination, Motorola hasn't done at all badly with its iconic RAZR range of slimline fashion phones, with millions sold and topping multiple style icon lists

    Nokia 5300 XpressMusic review

    8  

    Nokia has set out its stall for high end music mobiles with its N91 4GB and 8GB mobiles, but it's also keen to scoop up some of the budget end of the market too. The Nokia 5300 XpressMusic is a handset clearly targeted at a young music-loving audience

    Trolltech Greenphone review

    Virtualisation is a great way to try out new operating systems with the minimum of fuss. Trolltech has put it to a cool new use, by providing a virtual machine that's an instant Linux SDK, guaranteed to work with its new mobile phone

    Samsung SGH-Z720v review

    Samsung SGH-Z720v review

    9  

    Samsung has produced model after model of sleek, jet black handsets that hide away the keypad when not in use. The Z720 might seem like simply more of the same, but inside it's a big step forward in both features and performance

    Sony Ericsson W710i review

    8  

    Sony Ericsson doesn't give a Walkman badge to just any old MP3-playing phone. After all most mobiles have some form of onboard media player. A Walkman phone must go further, offering a serious package that delivers a serious acoustic experience

    E-Ten Glofiish X500 review

    8  

    If your Pocket PC doesn't do enough, and you fancy something with a few more features, E-TEN's Glofiish X500 could be the solution. It combines a mobile phone, camera, Pocket PC and GPS module within an unfeasibly thin casing

    LG Shine KE970 review

    8  

    Looks aren't everything, but they can sure shift a mobile phone. The Shine, then, has all the hallmarks of an instant classic. Its stunning silver looks are sure to grab attention - and the first question isn't 'what can it do?' but 'where can I get one?'.

    O2 Xda Orbit review

    9  

    After the force of Apple's iPhone launch, you'd be forgiven for thinking phone manufacturers were quaking in their boots. Not so. The iPhone is overpriced, designed for leisure over functionality and doesn't have GPS - a feature of O2's Xda Orbit...

    Palm Treo 680 review

    8  

    It is a good two years since the last Palm OS Treo handset arrived in the UK, and casual watchers could have been forgiven that we had seen the back of it on the Treo range. But the Treo 680 shows that reports of its demise have been exaggerated

    Yes, Pirelli. As in the tyre manufacturer, which has branched oto fields as diverse as real estate and broadband solutions. Its latest product in the latter line could well be the one that thrusts it into the mobile communications limelight

    Smartphones fall into two camps: those with Qwerty keypads and those with touchscreen interfaces. The 501 from Ubiquio offers both methods, leaving you to choose how to interact

    Nokia E61 review

    Cramming in everything bar the kitchen sink is what the E61 is about, with a feature list that includes everything a smartphone should offer. It's got quad-band GSM; 3G support; 802.11b/g; a 39-key QWERTY keyboard for easy data entry

    E-Ten Glofiish X500 review

    The X500 is a light smartphone in an already crowded smartphone marketplace. Using a simple chassis, the screen takes up the majority of available space, with a few buttons surrounding it. Interaction is via the stylus and touch sensitive screen

    Samsung has been causing a stir with its Ultra Edition handsets of late. These are very thin, very stylish phones, which are designed to generate gasps of enthusiasm and delight from anyone who lays eyes on them.

    Nokia 5500 review

    It seems we've been bombarded of late with music mobiles and cameraphones - all claiming to replace our favourite gadgets. But with the market rapidly saturating, manufacturers are increasingly looking towards creating niche areas to expand into.
