Since Apple launched the iPad Pro (Apple Pencil and all) at the start of last month, the trail has gone a bit cold for the tablet come laptop wannabe.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is out in the wild, available on the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, while Google's other Nexus devices will be next in line for the software.

As promised, Samsung has released its Gear S2 smartwatch in the United States, with the wearable going on sale in the country on Friday (Oct 2).

We are expecting Microsoft to launch the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones alongside Windows 10 Mobile next week. However, the company will also be launching a new Surface Pro, the fourth edition of the tablet come full on laptop PC.

Forget the G4 Pro, LG has rolled out a new flagship that stands as a unique addition to the market with blazing specs and a standout killer feature you won't find anywhere else.

However, the big news really is that screen, so we will start there as we get up close and personal with the V10.
Google announced its spiffing new smartphones this week, the flagship Huawei Nexus 6P and the LG Nexus 5X; so what does that mean for last year?s Nexus 6? That was of course made by Motorola and it was a full on flagship handset that came with a price tag to match its amazing specs. However, now the Nexus 6 can be picked up brand new for a bargain.
Two years since LG departed the Nexus scene with the Nexus 5, the South Korean company is back in the fold with the Nexus 5X. The handset was launched today by Google today and while it is easy to think of the 5X as a mere updated version of the Nexus 5, it is so much more. It brings a 2013 handset and brings it fully into 2015 and offers a compelling and affordable package along the way.
Google has just announced what is perhaps the best Nexus flagship the company has ever been involved in, the Huawei made Nexus 6P. The device was launched by Google today and alongside the Nexus 5X is the first product to be rocking Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Butterfly has always been HTC's flagship compromise, a device that comes with the absolute best specs available but the design is typically compromised with plastic instead of metal. The Butterfly 3 that was launched today fits in with that previous track record and of course it is a smartphone we have seen before. Like previous Butterfly flagships, this was first launched as the Butterfly J, an exclusive to the Japanese market.
