Best business gadgets

by Rebecca Lori

When one ponders a question and an answer doesn’t come instantly, we reach for the keyboard and search on the internet. When we relax on a train and realise that we’ve forgotten to send an important email, we use our laptops, which are wireless-enabled, or our mobile phones, which are now designed to do just about anything. What would we do without these gadgets and emerging new technologies?

We have sourced some of the best gadgets on the market, designed to make your lives easier…

Asus Eee PC 900

Possibly one of the dinkiest laptops currently on the market with an 8.9-inch screen, this little PC boasts Windows software and comes with 1GB of RAM and 20GB solid-state drive. The laptop weighs in at just 0.99kg, making it a perfect travel companion. Ideal for internet use and typing short documents, the Asus Eee PC is an all-round good choice for business travellers. The latest model has a slightly larger screen and larger keyboard, so whilst we don’t recommend writing a 2,000 word thesis, it is comfortable to use and has an 8 hour battery life.

Wireless Network Finder - ZyXEL AG225H

If you’re searching the area for available wireless networks and want to conserve your battery life, use this little device. This latest gadget is the mere size of a USB stick and enables users to find out whether you are in the vicinity of a wireless network. It will also let you know if it is encrypted as well as informing you of the strength of the signal and the details of the network ID.

Blackberry Pearl 8110

One of the best features of the Blackberry Pearl 8110 is the built-in GPS and Blackberry Maps software, which will save you time if you find yourself lost on the way to an important meeting. Like its predecessor, the Pearl 8110 has a QWERTY keypad, making surfing the net and sending emails a doddle. This stylish smartphone also boasts an expandable memory, various organiser applications, video recording and a 2MP camera, advanced phone features, instant messaging and wireless email. This is the phone for discerning business travellers.

Vodafone 7.2 USB Stick

The Vodafone 7.2 USB Stick enables users to access the internet, even if WiFi hotspots can’t be found. Just plug this device straight into your laptop and it will instantly connect to Vodafone’s mobile broadband service. Extensive network coverage and fast broadband – what more do you need?
