I spent the last five days using the new HTC One M8 and, while the design is excellent, I am not a fan of the UltraPixel camera and software effects. You will be able to order from all three major US carriers today with T-Mobile sitting on the sidelines until April.
The ThinkPad line of laptops has long been the standard for business. The latest model is the best of the lot, by far.
My iPhone 5s doesn't last me a full day and I have to actively manage the photos and video I store due to limited capacity. The new Mophie Space Pack helps with both of these issues.
Nokia now has Windows Phone devices with internal specs matching the leading smartphones. They take it further with their advanced camera, fantastic display, and more and the Lumia Icon is an excellent smartphone to consider.
Hands-on review: The new Pebble Steel -- attractive, functional and well-supported -- is clearly the best smartwatch now available. But competition's on the way.
As virtualisation technology spreads through the datacentre, the race is on to develop ways of sharing out data to virtual servers and desktops in large numbers.
Small Windows 8 tablets are beginning to appear in numbers. The ThinkPad Tablet 8 from Lenovo is a model for the enterprise.
I enjoy using ZAGG's keyboards with my iPad and their latest Arsenal rugged case for the iPhone is excellent. It is lightweight, well-designed, and reasonably priced.
The Sony Xperia Z1s is one of the first official US wireless carrier smartphones for Sony in recent times and it has some great features. It's unfortunate that a maker of excellent TVs can't seem to get mobile displays right.
LG launched their curved display phablet, but the premium price isn't justifiable given the low display resolution, mediocre camera performance, and odd button placement.
WaterField Designs make some of the finest mobile tech bags in the US and one of their latest models is the fantastic Staad BackPack. The Stout model is worth the $329 price and earns my highest praise.
The iPad is a great device for media and to fully enjoy it I prefer to prop it up with a case. STM Bags makes several cases for the iPad Mini with Retina display and I had the chance to test a couple.
Twitter users on Windows 8.1 should check out this app ASAP. Tweetium is one of the best Twitter apps on any mobile platform.
In January the GameStick appeared as a Kickstarter project. It is available now for $80 and some games are fun, but more games are needed and the user interface could use more work.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 is an excellent tablet alternative to the iPad with Windows RT 8.1 serving well in the tablet role. Even without a keyboard, the Lumia 2520 is a great tablet to consider for the holidays.
