CES 2014: 5 Best Gadgets for Remote Workers

The biggest technology show of the year has already been and gone: but what were the best gadgets on display that looked interesting for remote workers? Here are five exciting gadgets that could soon offer useful benefits to remote workers everywhere.

1. Huawei Ascend Mate 2

This smartphone is unexceptional in itself. It’s perfectly capable, but nothing particularly special about it. However, it gets onto this list due to its massive 4050-mAh battery.

Longer-lasting batteries have long been a problem for consumers, especially those who use their smartphones all day. Huawei claims this can last for two full days with heavy usage, which would be a real achievement and would allow you to use your smartphone on the go from anywhere without having to worry about running out of juice.

2. Lenovo ThinkPad 8

This is not only one of the best Windows tablets around – it is also perfect for remote workers because it can plug into a dock and be used as a fully functional PC.

Working from a tablet can be frustrating. But tablets are great because of the portability they provide. So if you like to take your tablet out with you but then work from a desktop back in your office, this could be perfect. The desktop PC function won’t be as powerful as the best PCs on the market right now, but it will certainly provide you with a basic system if that is all you require.

3. ASUS PadFone X

Why get a tablet and a smartphone separately when you can get them in one device? That is the idea behind this device, which comprises a 5-inch smartphone along with a 9-inch tablet. Simply plug the smartphone into the tablet and use it as a larger device, saving the need to pack two separate items.

4. ASUS Transformer Book Duet

ASUS goes one step further with this device. It’s a laptop and tablet all-in-one, but that’s not what makes it special. With this, you can switch between Windows and Android operating systems. So if you like to work on a Windows machine, but you prefer an Android tablet, now you have them both and save some space in your suitcase.

5. Mophie Space Pack

Many of us don’t like the idea of losing an expensive gadget while working overseas. If, however, you like to take your iPhone abroad with you, you may be interested in the Mophie Space Pack. It’s a protective case for your iPhone that gives you extra battery power and 32GB of storage, allowing you to use it for longer while on the go.

Get More from Remote Working

Technology has allowed remote working to become possible for many of us, so it makes sense that new developments will continue to make our lives easier. Keep an eye out for the above gadgets and others that appear throughout the year, because they could just help you to get more out of your remote work.
