Top 10 business gadgets

Offices are full of tech these days - here's our pick of the 10 most essential gadgets.

Everybody loves gadgets. Whether they're improving your business life through increased efficiency, or making your travel and downtime more enjoyable, it's certainly safe to say gadgets are business essentials.

Here's our roundup of the top 10 business gadgets.

Samsung NC 20 netbook

Netbooks have taken off in recent years, with some businesses even choosing to kit their employees out with them rather than laptops.

Since the launch of the Asus Eee PC, netbooks have become more powerful, meaning many can run all the necessary business applications.

The Samsung NC 20 netbook is IT PRO's pick of the best netbooks, coming with a 12.1 inch display and resolution of 1,280 x 800, web cam and three USB ports.

The NC 20 is a powerful business tool, combing VGA, Fast Ethernet, and SD card within the modest price tag of 328 ex VAT.

In terms of design, the NC 20 is constructed for professionals that demand a lot from their machines. The keyboard is well-sized and comfortable to use, and the trackpad and mouse make navigation extremely easy, whether on the move or in the office.

While the NC 20 is a little heavier than some netbooks at 1.52kg, it really doesn't effect the portability of the device at all. Combine this with the six hour battery life, and you have the perfect business tool for professionals who require speed, portability, and battery life from their machines.

iPhone 3GS

On its arrival, the iPhone set tongues wagging and jaws dropping. Apple, basically, reinvented what people perceived as a mobile device combing touchscreen capabilities, crisp graphics, email, apps, and an unprecedented web browsing experience, culminating in probably one of the greatest all round gadgets of the 21st century.

The iPhone 3GS carries on this legacy, setting the bar even higher this time, with improved speed - thanks to its 600MHz ARM processor with 256MB of RAM - extended battery life, and improved graphics, making it perfect for business or pleasure.

The 3GS is a reliable device capable of multitasking for long periods of time, allowing the user to email, browse web pages, check stocks, preview documents, and watch videos. In short, it is the ultimate device for professionals that require a high level of functionality, combined with good looks, and speed for their business and personal lives.

Additionally, little features like a video editing suite, as well as a digital compass and position triangulation on Google Maps ensure that you will always be pointing in the right direction for your meetings - and if not, you can always just sit down and indulge your artistic video editing fancies.
