Marketed as the Fly Mobile SLT100 in the UK, and the SX210 in most other countries, this sliding phone is quite inexpensive and has a neat trick up its sleeve.

 Fly Mobile SLT100 Retailing at about £60 or so for a pay-as-you-go handset on Virgin Mobile or Vodafone, the Fly Mobile SLT100 surprisingly comes with a 320 x 240 pixel resolution touchscreen, which we think is almost definitely the cheapest touchscreen device on the UK market for prepay customers.

This is a stylus driven device with built-in handwriting recognition, but you can also use an on-screen keyboard. Of course, as it's a slider phone you can use the keypad if you prefer.

The other features on the Fly Mobile SLT100 are pretty good too - there's a 2 megapixel camera with a flash, microSD expandable memory, an MP3/AAC player, video player, FM radio, Bluetooth, web browser and a set of personal information management functions.

In terms of size, the Fly SLT100 is pretty typical for a GSM device, coming in at 96 x 49 x 14.9mm and 101 grams in weight. The talktime is a pretty short 2.5 hours with 7.5 days standby time. The battery is only a 600mAh module, which we think is a little on the feeble side, although in all honesty the battery life is probably good enough for most people.

It's not exactly a stunning phone to look at, but it is a neatly laid out device with some quite classy looking metallic highlights. Standard colours are a grey-sliver, black and the almost inevitable pink, although these will vary from operator to operator.

The Fly Mobile SLT100 is certainly no iPhone killer, but it's incredibly good value for money and the touchscreen will appeal to many. At this sort of price range, the SLT100 is likely to find its way into many Christmas stockings.

The SLT100 is currently available in the UK from Argos, Currys, The Link and Woolworths.
