HTC One (M8) will get the Google Play Edition treatment

Stock Android KitKat on HTC's premium M8 hardware.

HTC will release a Google Play edition of its recently unveiled One (M8) smartphone. The new device will couple the One M8's premium hardware with Android KitKat software free from HTC's Sense user interface.

News of a Google Play Edition of the M8 was revealed by HTC in the description of its HTC Gallery application on Google Play.

Support for HTC One(M8) Google Play Edition is limited to HTC Photo Edit

The M8 Google Play Edition will support HTC's proprietary DuoCamera technology, which makes it possible to refocus photos after they have been saved.

This is the second Google Play edition smartphone to come from the company after demand from customers led to the release of the HTC One M7 Google Play Edition.

More details regarding the Google Play Edition of the HTC M8 will likely be revealed at Google's I/O conference in June.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
