The X340 promises speed with Intel's 1.3GHz Core 2 Solo CULV processor, the screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, and the computer comes packed with a 320GB HDD, up to 4GB RAM, a four-cell battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 3G/WiMax option. You can also pick up an external Blu-ray Disc player for the X340 to take advantage of that 16:9-ratio screen.


Samsung Mondi

Price: Unknown

Release date: Spring 2009

OS: Windows Mobile 6.1

Screen size: 4.3in

Why you'll love it: The Mondi is one of two internet devices to make our list. The Mondi features a slide-out qwerty keyboard, GPS, the Opera 9.5 browser, 4GB internal memory, a 3Mp camera with video support, Bluetooth 2.0, HDMI-out, Wi-Fi, WiMax, push email, and instant messaging support for Messenger, Fring, and Gypsii.

Samsung will ship the Mondi with a car mount for on-the-go action, too. Sadly there are no details yet of a UK release date.
