To be taken seriously in the business world, you need to look and act the part. This often means having the right gear, gadgets and accessories to come across as confident, intelligent and, most importantly, prepared to make an important deal or connection. This article will explore some of the latest and best accessories for the savvy businessman and businesswoman, including self-charging bags suitable for your smartphone, glasses to prevent jetlag and mobile phones to use on the go.
Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover
One of the most well-received accessories of 2012 was the Logitech Ultrathin iPad keyboard attachment, and it is still making waves. This accessory works by connecting a thin, portable keyboard to your iPad with a magnetic clip. Doubling as a protective cover, this accessory turns into a fully functioning keyboard when it is slipped open. This accessory is great from the travelling businessman or woman as it helps your tablet make the seamless transition to a near laptop, all by adding a keyboard for ease of typing and transport.
Business trips can be exciting opportunities for personal and professional growth. They can also, however, be stressful, draining and lead to debilitating jet lag that neither you or your boss can afford. A new Australian tech gadget may be here to help. Jet lag, which is a bodily reaction to abnormal shifts in sunlight patterns, can be controlled and prevented by using the Retimer glasses, which use green light to advance or delay the body’s natural rhythm. By wearing these glasses for 30 minutes after you wake up, or 30 minutes before bed, you should be able to return to natural sleeping patterns within three days. By mimicking the benefits of sunlight without harmful UV rays, Retimer reduces jet lag, increases energy and manages fatigue.
Everpurse, a small, portable purse that charges your smartphone, works by allowing you to place your phone into the pocket of a stylish clutch. Your phone connects to a docking system at the bottom of the clutch, so you don’t have to struggle with cords, and your phone then charges automatically. Each night you can place your Everpurse on its specially designed charging mat which uses inductive charging to send energy from the mat to the purse. Everpurse can charge your phone from 0 to 100 percent twice a day. The Everpurse is currently compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and Samsung Galaxy S III.
BlackBerry Bold 3 Series
The new BlackBerryBold 3 series is designed with business in mind. For instance, the BlackBerry Bold 9000 is purposely compact, chic and powerful, perfect for taking business on the go, and not just because of the competitive BlackBerry price. The precision of the trackpad and responsiveness of the touchscreen make this phone easy and smooth to handle. In addition to enhanced email and data security, a touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard, this phone contains a 5 MP camera, voice recording and a powerful QC 8655 1.2GHz processor. With Wi-Fi access to BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry Internet Bundle, you will never be disconnected. When researching the right tools for business, take a look at the now cheaper BlackBerry prices and consider if a smartphone will take you to the next level.
