What's your Device Ecosystem?


Nov 16, 2012
With the future of consumer technology being so ecosystem oriented, I thought it'd be fun to hear about everyone's current & near future ecosystem.


Desktop: Dell XPS 8500 running 8.1(I'll likely build a new gaming desktop late next year)
Laptop: Lenovo Yoga - it's a work device provided by work, I love it.
Tablet: Surface RT 32gb
Phone: HTC Trophy running 7.8 (Soon to be Nokia Lumia 929 or whatever the successor to the 928 is)
Console: None right now (Soon to be Xbox One)

What about you? Feel free to add or take away categories as you see fit.

PC running Windows 8
Tablet is Surface RT
Phone is Lumia 920
And I will likely get Xbox One in the future

I guess my ecosystem is clear :D

While I do have some laptops around, my Surface has replaced em all from active use.
