Japanese games designers have managed to put their own unique spin on the world's economic woes with the Osaifu Wallet Saver. This touch-screen title is a mix between a traditional role-play game, a tamagotchi pocket pet and your bank manager.

Would-be iPhone killers are being launched left, right and centre by mobile phone rivals jealous of Apple's touch-screen success story. The latest item to be unveiled is Nokia's sleek 5800, which offers a good line in features – it supports Flash, has pleasing haptics and a Carl Zeiss lens – and aims to beat Apple at its own game by luring in music fans with its download service that offers songs for free. Will it succeed in slaying the iPhone? You'll have to wait until Christmas, when the 5800 goes on sale, to find out.
