What are the essential tools you should travel with, that constitute a true “mobile office”? Traveling with the right gadgets can make all the difference in the success of your trip, particularly if you pack wisely enough to cover emergencies. Equipment not available at point of arrival? If you manage it right, it’s not a problem! as Business Traveller Magazine puts it:
Today’s mobile office equipment isn’t just compact – it also syncs seamlessly across your devices. A wireless scanner will connect to your tablet PC by Bluetooth. You can use the tablet to send an email to a printer 5,000km away, telling it to print the document you just scanned for your staff[.]
Here’s what they recommend:
Smartphone: The Samsung Galaxy Beam has a 50 inch projector built-in. Arrive at the client site and the projector isn’t working? No problem! You have one in your pocket!
Home Office Support: The HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus has a host of features that you can leave behind and connect to from anywhere, thanks to its native wifi connection and mobile device interface. Install this at home or office and you’ll be able to fax, print, scan, or copy distantly from your iPad.
The Expansys Magic Cube: Sync with your phone or tablet and beam (yes, beam) a virtual keyboard onto a table, desktop, or any other surface. It also doubles as a virtual mouse.
Portable Wifi Hotspot
Oh, and don’t forget your toothbrush!
