What's coming up: Lenovo Tech World, Computex, E3

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!

  • Waiting for superfish2...that's what's coming...
  • All I can think about right now is DOOM at E3!!!
  • Perfectly timed with the finals.
  • Ikr
  • Will they (Asus, Acer, HP, Dell, etc) announce new Windows 10 hardware when RTM is nowhere in sight?
  • Who knows. But considering their respective hardware will upgrade to Windows 10 anyway there's no reason why not.
  • I'll have a look for them at Computex.
  • I'm surprised Lenovo has the gall to even have its own event after a quarter of fuck ups
  • They have to, business 101..most norms don't even know of the the fuck UPS...so, on with the show..
  • I'm still waiting for HP AIO DESKTOP to roll out compatible drivers for Windows 8.1 and now here comes Windows 10!
  • Lenovo..China, NO thanks.
  • You do realize that even a bunch of Lumia phones are made in China, right?
  • They're a chineese company, where are they supposed to manufacture the goods?
  • Even in China there are original Chinese products I hope. Everything in China is not a dupe or a casual 'made in china'.
  • Almost everything is made there. Like any other country, they have good and bad manufacturers.
  • Lol most stuff you buy is made in China.
  • Hopefully that 28" 4k touch screen monitor they teased us with last year that was never released.
  • THAT I would be interested in.
  • I just wish Lenovo made a WP under the Motorola brand...
  • I'm not even going to guess what the milf in your name stands for...
  • It's just a word game with my names, absolutely NO milfs involved, I swear
  • Fair enough...
  • Sometime last week, a benchmarking site caught a Motorola phone running 8.1.
  • Whoa really...? I would be interested in taking a look at a Moto WP...i think Lenovo did hint anyway at allowing Moto to go beyond android around the time of purchase...
  • Regarding E3, do you reckon you could find out more info on id@xbox for Windows Phone and 10?
  • That will definitely be our main goal!
  • Any chance for a new ThinkPad tablet?
  • I don't know, ley me go check for you....they told me to fuck off so, idk..
  • I hope so!!
  • I've been to E3 twice! I'd do just about anything to get too go back!
  • Good for you....while the rest of have to sit at home and kick the dog, yell at the kids, and fight to get our women to do their damn jobs...like cook, clean, make my bed, fix the car, replace the HVAC unit, and not talk.....
  • Why couldn't you just go to E3, then do that when you got home?
  • That's my point, the woman won't do her job, noted above, so I can go...
  • Is it sad that I saw that main pic and before the I could see the headline my first thought was "oh, I didn't know they were going to be livestreaming a flight simulator game."  ::sigh:: I need to take a break from gaming. Edit: though I guess it was an appropriate line of thinking seeing how this is an E3 post.
  • I'm looking forward to seeing some new tablets and laptops with Intel's RealSense tech. Plus hopefully we'll get the official Windows 10 release date.
  • FALLOUT 4 !
  • All I am really waiting is on New High End Lumia Phones and a New Quake Game from Id software, but I need to wake up and stop Dreaming.
