Good performance and excellent security features shine in this IBM.

The 300PL makes a great corporate performer for users interested more in security and reliability than multimedia extras.

Review: Casio G'zOne Rock mobile phone


The sturdy Casio G'zOne Rock phone will appeal to outdoors types, but anyone looking for advanced multimedia capabilities might be disappointed.

Ruggedized exterior ; Excellent call quality

Camera flash may cause bright spots ; Subpar Web browser

External and internal shock absorbers and a textured, rubberized back give the 4.4-ounce phone a solid, sure feel; large, exposed screws give the impression of a handset that can take a rough-and-tumble life. Some users will appreciate the Rock's...

LG GT505 review by


The GT505 offers an affordable and very usable solution

Sluggish touch-screen, 3.5mm headphone jack is missing, texting is tough

For anyone who fancies a touch-screen phone, but doesn't need the thousands of apps - or the high price - of a smartphone, the GT505 offers an affordable and very usable solution

LG GT505 - TFT touchscreen, 5MP cam, Wi-Fi & GPS - Price under Rs. 17,000 Review


LG GT505 fails to impress as a good mid-range multimedia phone, due to a poor quality loudspeaker and the lack of a quality camera lens, leaving a lot to be desired at a price of Rs. 17,000.

Ships with scratch proof LCD sticker ; 5MP camera with auto-focus & LED flash ; Wi-Fi & A-GPS with Wisepilot Navigation software

Sluggish touchscreen interface ; Poorly built loudspeaker ; Lack of quality camera lens for video recording

Review: LG GD510 Pop. The Tiny Touchscreen Phone


Overview: If there was one thing the LG Cookie proved, it was that people like affordable touchscreen phones. A lot. The Korean manufacturer has decided to cash in even more on this trend with its GD510 Pop, but will this phone end up hiding in the...

Tough and nicely styled, but mediocre battery life and laggy performance


Touted as a rugged, durable phone for outdoorsmen - or for those who are simply rough with their equipment - the Casio G'zOne Rock mobile phone is a handsomely styled piece of equipment that feels nice and solid in your hand. I've had a number of ...

Functional; utilitarian; durable; looks good

So-so battery life; irritating software delays
