Mobile Action

Let's face it - more and more people are packing smartphones as they allow you to do so much more than just make calls.  In fact, there are a lot of times that I will travel and even do service calls without my laptop - if I have my phone handy.  TechReviews gives us the scoop on the new Nokia Lumia 710 - Nokia's entry-level Windows Phone 7 device and shares their thoughts.  It's a pretty low-spec phone, but it gets the job done.

On the other side of the Operating System and Spec coin is the Samsung Galaxy Note.  HardwareHeaven pulls off a full review while the TechReport discusses life since they made the plunge to the Note.  Also, TechReviews looks at this device in a full review as well.

What if one device solved the need to have a separate 3/4G enabled tablet, or laptop in addition to a phone? Well that is what Samsung aim to achieve with the Galaxy Note. Sitting very much above the phone space, yet below a full blown tablet, with its 5.3" screen it could be the answer... then again it could also be too big to be a phone or too small to be functional for other tasks.
