CES is gone and MWC is still to come but there are still cool new gadgets on our wish list. Here are the best, hottest and most desirable tech products of February 2015.
ZTE Blade S6
No it’s not the iPhone 6s come early. This is ZTE’s latest smartphone which looks similar to its Apple flavoured rival. Appearances aside, the price tag is low and its the first phone we’ve seen with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor. Also on the spec sheet is 4G LTE support and a 5in HD screen.

Hannspree Micro PC
Streaming sticks like Google’s Chromecast are now a familiar site but Hannspree has fit a whole PC inside one. This is a fully functional Windows 8.1 PC that fits in the palm of your hand and will plug into a TV or monitor via HDMI. Inside is an Intel Atom processor, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.

An HDMI stick is cool but what about a complete PC inside a mouse? The Mouse-Box is exactly that and is equipped with a 1.4 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex processor, Micro-HDMI port, Wi-Fi and a 128 GB disk. It’s currently a prototype.
Ever wanted to go to a gig or loud environments like stadiums without reducing your enjoyment. Well the Dubs ear plugs are the must have accessory for you. These compact and smart plugs have been fitted with acoustic filters to reduce volume but retain clarity. They’re reusable and available in four colours.

Sony Xperia E4
Competition in the budget smartphone market is hot and Sony hopes to win with the Xperia E4 which is under £100. The pebble-like phone features a 5in screen, quad-core processor and Android 5.0 Lollipop but lacks 4G support.
Denon Envaya Mini
It might be small but there’s a lot going on inside the Envaya Mini. This speaker features NFC for easy pairing, Bluetooth aptX and a microphone for speaker phone. Sound is provided by two 40mm drivers and a passive radiator. It’s also water resistant and offers a 10 hour battery life.
Calling all PC gamers. The SteelSeries Sentry is the world’s first gaming eye tracker. Games including Dota 2 and Assassin’s Creed Rogue will move and react simply based on where you look providing an ‘infinite screen’ experience.
