Mini Pro Sony Eric­s­son, $629 sony­er­ic­s­son.com.au

★★★ YOU WOULDN’T think a phone of this size could be equipped for busi­ness, but this mighty minia­ture mo­bile packs a lot in. The Xpe­ria X10 Mini Pro is just 9cm tall and 5.2cm wide, mak­ing it easy to carry, but it hides a QW­ERTY key­board be­neath its screen that is sur­pris­ingly ef­fi­cient. Its 2.5-inch touch­screen shows off Google An­droid apps, Sony Eric­s­son’s Timescape ad­di­tion and pho­tos from its 5-megapixel snap­per. That small screen can get crowded, how­ever. Mo­torola, $829 mo­torola.com.au

★★★★ MO­TOROLA has cre­ated a new Mile­stone and the re­sults are im­pres­sive. The se­quel does not look dis­sim­i­lar to the orig­i­nal but has im­por­tant ad­di­tions in­clud­ing a 1GHz pro­ces­sor, 8GB stor­age, nav­i­ga­tion keys for those who want to avoid its some­times laggy 3.7-inch touch­screen, and a spa­cious key­board with ded­i­cated punc­tu­a­tion marks. The Google An­droid phone is sleek, comes with a 5-megapixel cam­era and of­fers Swype on-screen ges­tures for short­cuts.
