Should I carry a laptop, tablet or smartphone? It’s a question that haunts every traveller. When on a vacation, many people like to carry their work with them. Thankfully, there are some hassle-free devices that can make away-from-office time much more productive and simple. Sudhir Chowdhary picks some key gizmos that are best to use on the go.
Logitech K 375s (Rs 1,995)
This is a wireless keyboard that can be connected to multiple devices like smartphone, laptop, etc., at the same time. It can help people type long documents, switch between apps, read the news and browse through social media posts hence making life easy for business professionals. Because you can toggle between devices, a lot of things get done without even touching the phone’s screen.
The K375s also comes with a universal stand that helps users to keep their mobile device at the right typing angle and make the typing experience faster, smoother and more convenient. It is an OS-adaptive keyboard which works with Windows PC, Android and iPhone.
Razer Orochi 8200 DPI (Rs 5,999)
Razer is known for its high-end gaming accessories and peripherals, but the company is also betting big on mobile computing. The Razer Orochi is the company’s most portable mouse, which is smaller than its dedicated gaming siblings and comes with a handy carry bag. Don’t let the small size fool you as the Orochi is a seriously good mouse to use on the go. It is fast and responsive, and I like the size and placement of the buttons. This mouse is Bluetooth-only and there’s no dongle to plug in.
