Hopeful messaging pro

The Unnecto Pro is targeted at the BlackBerry set, designed to lure this frequently messaging user with a QWERTY keyboard and RIM-style chrome accents.

BlackBerry, style if a little thick

The Unnecto Pro may strive for BlackBerry-style hardware but looks a bit too thick to pull it off.

An affordable Android

The new Unnecto Quatro looks promising. It's a low-cost and unlocked smartphone running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, has a 4-inch screen (800 x 480 pixels), and boasts two SIM card slots for GSM and HSDPA connectivity.

This ain't no Droid Razr

Viewed from the side, the Unnecto Quattro looks much thicker than modern Android handsets sold by the big carriers.

A good grip

On back of the Unnecto Quattro is its 5-megapixel camera but unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a corresponding LED flash. Still, the rubberized coating has a nifty textured surface that provides a solid grip.

A curve with wide hips
