The Z10 is a step up from the original kick sliding Z8, but it’s still not up there with the very best smartphones. Top-level features like integrated GPS and Wi-Fi support are absent on this phone, though it does have high-speed HSDPA 3G data connectivity. The camera is decent but not a top-notch shooter. There’s the size factor too - you may expect a larger display given the phone’s footprint. General phone performance was good but there were issues with occasional software glitches and sometimes sluggish keypad responsiveness on our review sample.

Palm Treo 500v

Palm's Treo 500v isn't the 'power users' Windows Mobile device - no Wi-Fi; no HSDPA just plain old 3G - but it's an impressive attempt at bringing the handset family into the reach of the mainstream. It's wonderfully compact and it looks good. Palm's new UI is a big improvement on the standard WM one, and its micro-keyboard is as easy to use as anything on a BlackBerry or HTC device.
