Looking for a palm-size personal ‘PA' or a novel Christmas gift for the office? Tom Dunmore, editor-in-chief of Stuff, picks out some gems.
Optoma Pico Projector £299
The world's first pocket projector, this is about the size of a pack of playing cards but delivers a decent image up to 30in (60 in a darkened room). The Pico is battery-powered, with a life of up to two hours, and can be charged via USB. It'll accept any composite video input – from mobile phones, MP3 players and digital cameras for example.
Palm Treo Pro Free with contract, £380 without
Once upon a time, the Palm Pilot was the definitive handheld work tool. The rise of smartphones all but killed off the company that pioneered the personal digital assistant (PDA) but the good times may be about to roll again, judging by the quality of this small and stylish Windows Mobile phone. Don't let its size deceive: the Pro is feature-packed, with a highly usable keyboard, speedy HSDPA internet access, WiFi and satellite navigation.
Fujifilm Z200fd £185
This Christmas's must-have digital compact is the deliciously thin Z200fd. Despite being just 2cm thick, Fujifilm has managed to cram in a 5x zoom lens and a bunch of image enhancing features such as image stablisation and face detection. The result is fantastic 10megapixel pictures.
Asus Eee PC S101 £450
Having invented the netbook and conquered the low end of the PC market, Asus took the risky decision to capture the middle ground with its first ‘premium' netbook. The S101's build quality is a world away from the cheap plastic of rivals, and it has a 10in screen and full-sized keyboard despite being magazine-thin. The 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor and 1GB RAM provide a slick Windows XP experience, but the 16GB of solid-state memory is limiting.
