Top Technologies For The Travelling Entrepreneur [INFOGRAPHIC]

businesstravellers   Top Technologies For The Travelling Entrepreneur [INFOGRAPHIC]With the advent of the Internet and technology, business travel is not the arduous slog that it may once have been. To set up your “office”, all you need is a laptop or tablet, a mouse and keyboard, a pair of headphones, and an eBook reader and Netflix membership for those downtime moments. Now you can sit in the first class departures lounge at Heathrow Airport and drink the bar dry while you check your emails, and read “Fifty Shades of Grey” on your Kindle.

Our infographic today outlines the kind of gear you should be contemplating if you are planning to do any extended amount of business travel.  And really, it all comes down to your personal needs.  One person may prefer an iPad while another is totally in love with their MacBook Air.  Same goes for the style of headphones or whether you need a Bluetooth keyboard for your iPad.  Assess your needs and pack accordingly.

Are you a frequent business traveller? If so, tell us in the comments what electronic gear you pack for those long flights. Are you a tablet or laptop fan? And what ARE you reading on that Kindle of yours?

Nice list comes in handy on occasion one fundamental item missing though… your watch!

With my netbook I prefer to have a desk, but e.g. modern Trains don’t have desks at every seat, so I think a tablet would be better to use.

And a portable charger

two things: ipad is NOT the best tablet (ok, screen and battery rock, but the software is dumb); spreadsheets DO run on decent androids. The only problem with the tablets is windoze (in)compatibility.

I’m not really a big fan of noise cancelling headphones because they compromise the sound quality. How they work is by creating the opposite sound of the noise outside. This is supposed to cancel it out the noise. A downside to this is that you can get lessened sound quality by using the noise cancelling feature. I’m not a big fan of that. I would suggest bringing a pair of headphones with good isolation. Little noise going in and little sound going out. That would be my preference. Some people may not even notice the degradation of quality though.

Netbooks for travel as i need office programs and plenty of hard drive and they are just as small as my tablet and has a keyboard and bluetooth mouse. No desk my lap is good. Why do you think they call them laptops?

personally, I prefer a notebook with internet connection for a journey friend. but since my notebook dropped its battery capacity, I bring my Sony Ericsson Elm mobile phone (its camera is great! with wifi too to post my journey on my personal blog) and a walkman (yes, no ipod here!) if I got bored.
