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.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
