The "right across the globe" term isn't misused here, either. We'll be taking in events in China, Taiwan and California. And that's just the Windows Central related stuff!
Things kick off next week with Lenovo Tech World in Beijing, China. Mobile Nations will be represented there by Android Central's Alex Dobie, who will also be reporting back any tasty Windows related device news. Lenovo continues to go from strength to strength with its Windows portfolio, and as we get ever closer to Windows 10 we're excited to see what might be around the corner.
At this point it doesn't look like any big live-streamed happenings will be going on in Beijing, though Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, is listed as a keynote speaker. Keep it locked to both Windows Central and Android Central to see everything that goes down. Beijing is +8 hours from the UK and +13 hours from the East Coast of the U.S., so there's every chance things will drop while some of you are in bed!
Immediately after it's over to Taipei, Taiwan, where we'll be hitting up Computex for the first time. This is more a computing, PC maker kind of show than anything mobile, but that's not to say there won't be possibilities for plenty of both. I'll be making the trip and dragging Alex Dobie with me to help out, so expect to see lots from one of the world's biggest computer trade shows.
Events to look out for include ASUS' annual showcase, Intel's opening keynote and the Microsoft Forum. We'll be liveblogging at least ASUS and Microsoft, and we'll be back closer to the day with specific times. ASUS has a habit of announcing a ton of new products at its local show, though so far we only know about the Android Wear powered Zenwatch 2. Microsoft on the other hand will be talking some more about Windows 10, we hope, and about any number of hardware partner related news snippets along the way. It'll be delivered by Nick Parker, Microsoft Corporate Vice President responsible for device partnerships.
Computex also has an expansive show floor with representations from the likes of Dell, Acer, NVIDIA, HP and many more besides. Stay tuned for our show preview next weekend. Computex happens from June 2, though we'll have news rolling in from June 1. Stay tuned for our Computex preview coming up next weekend.
Then of course there's E3 in LA. Taking place on June 16-18, E3 is where we're going to be spoiled rotten with Xbox One goodness, more on HoloLens and as much first-rate gaming news as you can throw a stick at.
First order of business will be bringing you live coverage from the Xbox press conference, but after that we'll have a strong team on the ground to bring you everything you'll want to know about the future of your favorite console.
And if you're interested in what the competition is doing, Google I/O and Apple's WWDC are taking place either side of Computex. Head on over to Android Central and iMore for everything you'll need to know about those.
So strap in, it's going to be a busy few weeks. There's going to be lots coming out of these events and we're delighted to be taking you with us. If there's something in particular you're looking forward to, be sure to share it in the comments below!

Microsoft’s ‘Project Latte’ aims to bring Android apps to Windows 10
Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to bring their Android apps to Windows 10 with little to no code changes by packaging them as an MSIX and allowing developers to submit them to the Microsoft Store. The project is codenamed 'Latte' and I'm told it could show up as soon as next year.
