What does it do?

With a flashy full-colour screen and a hefty 16MB of memory, Philips' Nino 500 is an impressive entrant to the palmtop market. In effect an ultra-slimmed-down version of your desktop PC, it weighs in at under a quarter of a kilo and uses a pen-and-touch screen. Functions include good handwriting recognition, audio note-taking, internet and e-mail capability and the ability to synchronise with a desktop PC. The Nino 500 uses the latest version of Windows CE and its sizeable memory makes it suitable for RAM-hungry applications. And yes, it comes with a nice selection of games for those dull train journeys.

What's the competition?

3Com does a nice range of palmtops and, if you must have a keyboard, Psion would be a good choice. But if you want a hand-held for complex graphics and internet use, the Nino stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Where can I get it?

It will be widely available this summer for about £380.
