★★★ 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 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.
