Active RetireesTM | 35 TECH GUIDE APPLE IPHONE 4 The iPhone 4 is a lightweight touch screen smartphone that combines fast processing power with ease-of- use software. The standard iPhone 4 comes with two cameras, one on the back for taking photos and the other on the front for video calls. It is built for multitasking, allowing a number of applications to be operating at the same time. It also provides free access to the Apple App Store, which allows the user to choose from 350,000 phone applications, many of which are free. The iPhone also allows the user to listen to music, send and receive emails, watch movies, play games and read eBooks. The Apple system does take some getting used to, so can be great for those with previous iPod or smartphone experience. RRP: $829 (16GB) W: www.apple.com HTC DESIRE HD The HTC Desire HD is designed with ease of use in mind, with an LED screen providing crystal-clear graphics. The Desire runs on Google Android software, which means users download their apps from the Android Marketplace rather than the Apple App Store. It comes with an eight-megapixel flash camera, one of the highest resolution smartphone cameras on the market, and a very fast web-browser. One feature that sets the Desire apart from its competitors is ‘remote lock’. If you misplace your phone, remote lock allows you to find it using GPS mapping online. You can also access the phone remotely and either wipe all the phone’s contacts and message history, lock the phone or display a message asking whoever finds the phone to call you on another number. While it is easy to use, it would be recommended for users an intermediate knowledge of smartphones. RRP: $779 W: www.htc.com BLACKBERRY BOLD 9700 The BlackBerry Bold 9700 boasts an exceptional battery life. BlackBerries are one of the few remaining non- touch screen smartphones, so this one has a keypad. The 9700 is simplistic compared to its rivals. It comes with a five- megapixel camera, GPS, movie and music facilities, and, of course, internet and email. It is made for users who send and receive a large number of emails but is suitable for any user due to its ease of use. The BlackBerry is ideal for novice phone users.
