For the biggest tech-heads, any type of new release is bound to be a thrilling prospect. But recently, with the latest unveilings of the Google Glass and the Apple iWatch tantalizing us with previously unseen levels of innovative technology, the excitement seems to be on the rise.

It’s easy to get carried away when there is a new product on the horizon, but with the aforementioned designs only being in the patent stage, we thought we’d take a look at those with an imminent release date.

With three of the biggest technology manufacturers in the world soon to be releasing multiple items, we’ve handpicked just three we think are the cream of the crop.

Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook, HP Envy 27”IPS Monitor with Beats Audio, Sony 4K TV

Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook

It’s all about the portable product these days. Now combining all the features of a laptop with the sleek design of a tablet, the XPS 13 is the latest and possibly ultimate lightweight accessory. Undoubtedly, the dainty design of Dell’s latest ultrabook is its defining feature – 18mm thick and with a 13.3” HD display, it’s touted as being perfect for viewing thanks to its wide angle.

Surprisingly, with a 3rd Gen Intel® Core™ processor, it’s also pretty high spec. All in all, this ultrabook sounds like an excellent choice; if used in conjunction with a Dell voucher code or if you’re patient enough to wait for a sale, it’d be a steal.

HP Envy 27”IPS Monitor with Beats Audio

In contrast to the Dell’s modestly priced laptop, the new Beats Audio monitor from HP is all about the wow factor. In a Hewlett Packard promo, the item was described as a "unique and immersive audio-visual experience" and naturally, it sounds like a product for the serious gamer – or anyone who is simply passionate about digital sound and display.

With its unique upturned angle, 27 inch monitor and super skinny design, it undoubtedly looks impressive. Designed in conjunction with Dr Dre, it promises to be something special.

Sony 4K TV

If you’re not the type of techy to game or watch DVD’s on a computer, then perhaps Sony’s brand spanking new 4K TV is the new product for you. What’s so great I hear you ask? Well, forget HD, Sony 4K TV is said to offer – yep, you guessed it – four times the detail. If you’re used to watching HD then this might sound nigh on impossible, yet with 8 million pixels and a new innovation known as Triluminos (which essentially refers to the backlighting and how it incorporates a wider range of colour) – it’s got to be seen to be believed. Although the teasing Sony Promo gave a good amount of detail, there is currently no suggestion of retail price.

If you’re eager to get your hands on the Google Glass, you might have to exercise just a little patience… but with a range of products like these filling the gap: we reckon you’ll be fairly content in the meantime.
