Satmap launched its first product, the Active 10, at the end of 2007. The launch in itself was a good initiative, while there are not that many suppliers for this type of GPS devices, and it is always good to have a bit of a competition. Reading on the Internet about the Active 10, particularly at the time the business was just taking off, we find many complaints, partially correct and partially caused by the greater comfort other devices offer. Gradually through time, the tone of the comments has changed, although this did require several updates and a price cut.• Read our full Satmap GPS handheld review.

High resolution digital cameras are no longer an exception on mobile phones. It started a few years ago with an integrated VGA camera, which we thought to be very innovative at the time. Currently, however, there are phones on the market featuring an 8.0 or even 12.0 Megapixel camera. Yet the difference in quality does not go unnoticed. Whereas all the attention seems to go to the snapshot camera, the video capture function seems to have been pushed into the background a little bit. However, the Samsung HD now changes this, and actually emphasizes a HD video function.• Read our full Samsung HD review.

The Finnish phone manufacturer Nokia uses special types of operating systems for the different categories of their mobile phones.
