Ubuntu Edge

Think of the Ubuntu Edge ($830) as a proving ground for next-generation mobile technology — most of the things you see here will likely make their way onto big-name handsets. The biggest of those technologies is convergence: hardware and software that seamlessly transitions between desktop and mobile. All you need to do to use it as a desktop PC is plug it into a display using HDMI, and pair it with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. This is possible thanks to a fast multi-core CPU, 4 gigs of RAM, and a 128 gig flash drive. Other impressive features include the ability to dual-boot between Android and Ubuntu OS, a 4.5-inch sapphire crystal display, stereo speakers, and two LTE antennae.

  • Jolla Smartphone

    If you're the kind of guy who doesn't want his stuff to look quite like everyone else's, then the Jolla Smartphone ($520) might be the one for you. Interchangeable backs — referred to as "the other half" — come in a range of colors, and automatically force the phone's UI to adopt a complementary color scheme. Ships with their Android-app compatible, yet proprietary Sailfish OS, a dual core processor, 4G connectivity, and 16GB of storage. The battery is user-replaceable, and the phone features a 4.5-inch screen and 8MP camera.

  • Sony Xperia Z Ultra

    If there's one thing Sony is known best for, it's making gorgeous displays, and at 6.4-inches the Sony Xperia Z Ultra ($TBA) has the largest and slimmest full HD display of any smartphone. In case your phones always seem to find their way into a body of water (or a beverage), it's also waterproof — so there's no need to junk it up with a bulky case. This Android smartphone comes with a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor, and 4GLTE, so it's ready to handle just about any gaming, professional, or video application.
