HTC wants you to 'meet the new Marshmallow' on October 20

The company is hosting a virtual launch for its first phone to run Android 6.0 right out of the box.

HTC is set to launch its first Android Marshmallow-equipped smartphone.

The company sent out invites to a “virtual launch event” for October 20 at noon EST. Details were slim, though HTC promised this would be “not your traditional smartphone.”

The subject line of the email sent to press members also declared: “Meet the new Marshmallow from HTC.”

Superlatives aside, anyone will be able to watch the unveiling from HTC’s site. We’ll have our eyes on it also to find out what the company has worked up to try and turn around its sagging smartphone business.

The story behind the story: HTC is in serious financial trouble, and it’s One M9 phone left a lot to be desired. According to the latest leaks HTC’s next phone could look a lot like the iPhone, so we’ll have to see if there is anything else Earth-shattering about what HTC wants to show off.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
