ACN rounds up the latest and greatest executive gadgets, from teeny-tiny notebooks to the latest ultra-precise laser mice.

Samsung SGH-G810

The need for people to carry both a mobile telephone and a digital camera has been fading for some time, and the feature-packed Samsung SGH-G810 is doing little to slow that need.

The phone contains a five megapixel super-camera with xenon flash, featuring 3X optical zoom and 4X digital zoom with various nifty photographic options, and has received some fairly serious accolades since its release.

Most recently, the European Imaging and Sound Association awarded the camera-phone ‘European Photo Phone 2008-2009'.

EISA's convergence panel commented that the technology present in the G810 would have been simply unimaginable in a consumer device a few years ago, almost begging the question - "Is it a camera or is it a phone?" The only answer to this question is simply, "both".

The camera part is certainly up to scratch, taking extremely slick photos that are starting to approach the quality of professional cameras. Samsung have not rested on their laurels and appear to have spared no expense on the phone aspect of the device either.

GPS, Bluetooth, video, MP3 and radio are some of the other features that can be toyed with when the user becomes tired of the crystal clear photography.

However, the G810 isn't entirely perfect - the relatively low amount of inbuilt memory (130 Mbytes) is frankly insulting when one considers that Samsung is one of the world's largest memory manafacturers. And for the price the Korean firm is asking for this phone, we know they can do better.
