Whether you’re looking for that perfect gift for the businessman or woman in your life, or you’re a business person yourself who is interested in the latest tech on the market, these 10 gadgets are must-have items.
1. Lenovo ThinkPad 10 Tablet
With a 10.1” touchscreen interface, beautiful 1920x1200 HD display, Intel quad-core processor and Windows 8.1 mobile-optimized operating system, the Lenovo ThinkPad 10 tablet is a tremendously capable and attractive device. Put simply, it offers everything that you might need in a tablet. Perhaps best of all, it’s affordable too.
2. Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Convertible Laptop
If a tablet isn’t quite robust enough for your needs, but a traditional laptop is too large and cumbersome, a convertible offers the solution you’re seeking. And no, we’re not referring to a car with a retractable roof. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga convertible laptop offers the functionality of a tablet with the capabilities of a laptop in one adaptive and useable package.
3. Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
Launching in Fall 2014, which if you haven’t noticed is now right around the corner, the new Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a revolutionary offering in what has become a conservative market. With a touchscreen display that curves around and over the phone’s bezel, it’s like nothing else that’s come before it. Interested buyers would do well to consider T-Mobile, as if history is anything to go by, the carrier will offer the best contracts and pricing in the market – adopters will likely even benefit from free 4G LTE service.
Being a businessman or woman means living a life comprised of both hours at a time spent at a computer desk and moments of hurried, on-the-go mayhem. Meals can come at odd times and often aren’t the healthiest options. All of this can make it difficult for a person to keep track of their physical activity. The Fitbit wearable activity tracker solves this problem, allowing individuals to easily track and analyze health stats on the go.
5. Short-throw Projector
A short-throw projector enables high-definition, full-screen graphic and video presentations anywhere. And perhaps best of all, they ensure that everyone in the room will actually be able to see the presentation. Why rely on someone’s laptop screen or that aging television when you can use a wall? Though the new Sony 4K ultra short-throw projector may be a bit out of reach of small businesses and individuals, for corporate environments, there is no better option.
6. Apple TV
For businesses that don’t want to spend an employee’s annual salary on a projector, the Apple TV represents the next best thing. This modern version of the set top box, which costs just $100, turns any TV into a smart TV. Simply plug it in and synced devices can stream data to a monitor of choice. If you want to show a video or share a PDF document from a tablet, phone or laptop, the Apple TV makes doing so easy.
7. Intuos Pen and Touch
For the graphic designers, engineers, and other hands-on business types, the Intuos Pen and Touch is the perfect tool. This tablet, which makes use of a pen or stylus and touch-screen interface, puts the tactile sensation of writing (or drawing) back into the digital experience. It allows hand-written notations, drawings, and other creative forms of art to be instantly digitized.
8. Mugenizer Portable Wireless Charger Bank
There’s nothing worse than having your phone or tablet die on you while you’re away from home (except for perhaps having to ask everyone in the office if they have their charger on them). The Mugenizer portable wireless charger bank is small, thankfully, meaning throwing it in your pocket or purse is as intuitive as throwing your phone in is. Charge it up, bring it with you, and you’ll never be without power.
9. Tablet Case
If you have a tablet that you’d like to preserve, or the businessman or woman in your life throws their tablet in a bag every morning, a tablet case is a great option. The Dodo Case is an incredibly stylish tablet sleeve that can be personalized to reflect your interests, personality or even your business. It both protects your tablet and keeps it hidden from view until you want to use it.
10. Samsung Galaxy Gear
The promise of the old Dick Tracy comic has finally arrived; a wristwatch that you can also use as a phone (and in the case of the Samsung Galaxy Gear, a digital personal assistant as well)! The Galaxy Gear smartwatch syncs with a Samsung smartphone to deliver email messages, text messages and phone calls right to your wrist. It’s hands-free and incredibly intuitive and freeing. It could very well be the future of personal communciation.
