Verity Burns is a technology journalist and editor of MSN Tech and Gadgets. When she's not writing features, blogs and opinion on the latest in consumer technology, you'll also catch her presenting the site's video review show Hands On and hear her spouting off on the MSN Games monthly podcast with Iain Lee. Verity has written for gadget mags and websites for nearly five years, and prior to joining MSN worked at Stuff, Pocket-Lint and What Mobile.
Rob Kerr is the Editor of One Mobile Ring and a journalist with more than 12 years experience of news, reviews and feature writing on titles such as WIRED, PC Magazine, The Register, The INQUIRER, Pocket-Lint, Mobile Industry Review, Know Your Mobile and The Gadget Show. The mobile phone world is his real passion and forte, having owned a handset as far back as 1994 where he's seen them grow from just being just a business tool, to a necessity in everyone's everyday life.
Richard's love for gadgets was probably triggered by an electric shock at the age of five while poking his finger into power sockets for no reason. Since then he has managed to destroy a few more desktops and phones until he got sent to the U.K. to start secondary education, and somehow he ended up quitting uni in London to join Engadget. Richard's spent almost half of his life in the UK prior to moving back to Hong Kong, but his love for gadgets -- particularly in mobile phones -- is split evenly between the two homes.
Natasha Stokes Natasha Stokes is the editor of Mobile Choice, a UK mobile magazine and website focusing on devices and consumer news. She recently judged the Best Handset award in the 2010 GSM Awards, and chaired the judging of the eleventh Mobile Choice Consumer Awards.

Previously, she was the media and tech editor at HK Magazine, Hong Kong's largest English-language magazine, and founding editor of lifestyle monthly Taxi.

Gareth Beavis is Mobile Phones Editor of TechRadar, overseeing hugely in-depth reviews of every mobile phone on a daily basis, based on an embarrassing passion for shiny, pocket-friendly devices.
