The LG G3 is an elegant high-end Android smartphone with a superb 5.5-inch screen, a high-quality 13-megapixel main camera, a fast quad-core SoC, intelligent UI skinning and an admirably restrained set of software extras.
HP's 14-inch EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 combines ultrabook elegance with MIL-STD 810G robustness. It has a great screen and performs well, but lacks integrated VGA and Ethernet ports. You'll pay a premium price too.
Some vendors will sell you a custom controller and extra licences to get central wi-fi management, but Draytek has put the functionality into its routers to make wireless management a no-cost option for buyers of its small-business networking products.
The G Pad 8.3 is a well-thought-out tablet. Some may find the software extras a bit much, but there's a lot of utility in there. The hardware spec, like the device as a whole, is good value for money.
The thin, lightweight and stylish Kira-101's standout feature is its high-resolution 13.3-inch touchscreen. It delivers solid performance and good battery life, but the price is high.
A communication plan serves many purposes, from publicizing successful rollouts to keeping execs in touch with the IT roadmap. Here's how to build your plan -- and a few templates to get you started.
If you're looking for a rugged Windows 8.1 tablet that's relatively compact and lightweight, Panasonic's 7-inch, 540g, 18mm-thick Toughpad FZ-M1 is a good option. It's expensive, though, and battery life could be better.
Samsung has done a good job with the Galaxy S5. Software bloat has been pared down and a few useful new features added, while the technical specifications are superb and battery life is good. Design purists may bemoan the plastic chassis, but the Galaxy S5 is still a worthy successor to last year's model.
Every inch the premium high-end smartphone, the Xperia Z2 delivers excellent performance, screen quality and camera resolution without compromising battery life. However, the abundance of third-party apps may confuse some users, and we noticed that the handset sometimes runs hot.
This affordable 8-inch Atom-based (Bay Trail) Windows 8.1 tablet has a nice IPS screen and delivers all-day battery life under light usage modes. Limited screen size, internal storage and processing power will prevent it from being more than a companion device for mobile professionals though.
Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr is everything a Long Term Support release should be. No big changes, but a solid, stable release, with a few nips and tucks here and there.
The HTC One (M8) ticks most of our boxes: design, build and performance are all excellent, there's no app overload, and HTC Sense is improving with every iteration. Battery life could be better and some of the camera tools may seem unnecessary, but overall it's a winner.
A compact and affordable microserver that squeezes 24 server nodes into 3U of rack space, the Quattro 1396-T delivers huge gains in terms of space and energy efficiency but lacks scalability at the individual server level.
There's more to this phablet than its curved chassis, although the moderate screen resolution and lack of storage expansion are disappointing. On the plus side, battery life is good and LG's Android tweaks are largely successful. Overall though, the G Flex is simply way too expensive.
If you work in a traditional Windows-based shop, you could be in for a bumpy ride. Ed Bott explains how IT pros will need to adapt to a variety of changes.
