When you’re travelling, make the most of your business trip by picking up the latest technology innovations you can’t get anywhere else. We know you love your iPhone, we do. But the amazing tech available from other companies makes a great case for having a “work” phone. Here is a list of the newest products guaranteed to impress your kids, your colleagues and even your boss.
1. The Samsung EAD-R10 Mobile Beam Projector
Available only in: South Korea (And on Amazon)
There’s no better way to present yourself as tech savvy and internationally cultured at your client presentation than bringing something modern to the meeting. The Samsung Mobile Beam Projector is palm size and has two hours of battery life – although if you have that many slides, you’re already in trouble. This devise let’s you compensate smoothly the next time you say “I have a Power Point” and they say “We don’t have a projector. Can the 10 of us share the laptop?” Even better, bring it in your pocket to every meeting and save the day for your supervisor! *Check out Sammobile.com for a more in-depth look at this (and other Samsung) products!
Available only in: Most countries in Europe, November 2013
Whether you are a journalist, record video footage for a website or simply run a serious travel, the Acer Liquid S2 smart phone records 4K video with better-than-HD visuals. For the professional edge in Vlogging or recording that keynote presentation for your boss, this Acer offers a handheld video product without apologies.
Available only in: Europe, South Korea
If you want to make sure you never lose your phone again, there’s now one way to do it: the LG 3G GD910. This item isn’t new. It was launched in 2009 (Notice the 3G), but it is the only wrist watch phone on the market. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Gear, this watch is not a fancy wrist piece that synchs to your smart phone on your belt. It IS a phone. And a phone. Think “Dick Tracy” watch. There’s even a touch screen keypad for texting and using Skype Video. Yes – video. The LG GD910 is perfect if you need to protect your phone from pickpockets, or if you travel “in the field” for your job and need both hands available while you communicate.
And it does tell time. In the tech industry, wristwatches are becoming a sign of an over-the-hill, outdated employee (Unless the watch is expensive enough to be a luxury statement). Shake hands while wearing the LG910 watch, and you’re guaranteed to start off with the upper hand!
Available only in: Japan
With the Living Wallet, have a great time teaching your kids (or your spouse) the value of money. The wallet synchs with the smart phone App Zaim for your bookkeeping, and actually inches away on little wheels when it senses you have overspent. If you persist in grabbing for your money, it shouts “No! Stop! Put me down!….” As a last resort, the wallet will send an email to your mom (or spouse) to notify them of this breach of budget. Talk about incentive!
Available only in: The United Kingdom (UK)
The DesignLine television, by the Dutch company Koninklijk Philips N.V., is a sleek, modern art piece and a television all in one. A metallic smooth canvas with no rim turns on in an instant for your media entertainment needs. The DesignLine television can be mounted on the wall or leaned against it on the floor. Philips’s latest innovation heralds the end of the TV room and the return of the parlour. It’s alternatively decoration or device for the 21st century living room.
