There's tons of gear coming out in the next few months and we’ve already run in, hiked with, rode on, drove in, listened to and played with most of it.

Nokia Lumia 2520 Tablet
Perfect for taking work on the road, the lightning-fast Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet is more like a Windows microlaptop with WiFi and LTE broadband connectivity, and an optional keyboard that adds a trackpad and USB ports. In addition to its suite of business apps, the tablet's 10-inch widescreen display means you also have a killer way to watch movies in the hotel. [From $399; nokia.com]
