Motorola SLVR L7 music phone

Review According to the 'word on the street', there are two reasons why you would want Motorola's SLVR phone over any other. The first is the dimensions of the device and the second that it's the second phone from Motorola to offer users iTunes software. The first point is very true.

Casio Exilim EX-Z500 5mp digicam

Review The five-megapixel, 3x optical zoom Exilim EX-Z500's silmline design - it's just 8.9 x 5.7 x 2.1cm - and 2.7in LCD are the first things you'll notice when you take a closer look at this digital camera.

Sony NW-E205 'Bean' digital music Walkman

Sony NW-E205 'Bean' digital music Walkman

Review Sony's Bean - or the NW-W205, to give it is proper title - is a 512MB MP3 player that breaks away from the conventional flat and slim Flash player form-factor. This makes it perfect for clenching in your fist when you go for a run, but will create a curious bulge in a pair of trousers when out and about. Laid on a desk, the top …

Samsung SGH-D600 mobile phone

Review Just like Chelsea Football Club's manager, the D600 is a suave and sophisticated phone that comes across as one cool cucumber. But does the phone have the features to match or is it all style and no substance? Samsung SGH-D600 We have to admit it, we love the D600. Its black curvy lines, the large screen and the sliding motion …
