For professionals, being out of office doesn't necessarily mean they can go offline. Some gadgets help them stay connected better than others
If your daily calendar has one meeting after another lined up, and you are constantly fretting about the next presentation in office or to a client, chances are, you need a more capable device. Here are some of the most capable options launched this year.
Apple iPad Pro
₹ 49,900 onwards (9.7-inch version); ₹ 67,900 onwards (12.9-inch version)
Microsoft Surface Pro 4
₹ 89,990 onwards; ₹ 12,490 (Surface Type Cover Keyboard)
The Surface Pro 4 is by far the best example of a flexible computing device that runs Microsoft’s Windows operating system—it can be used as a tablet, and attach the keyboard dock, and it becomes a competent laptop. Unlike many hybrid PCs that compromise a lot in terms of the quality of the keyboard and the general ease of use, the Surface Pro 4 excels in all possible usage scenarios. It weighs 786g, which is less than even the thinnest laptops money can buy and is 8.4mm thick, which is smartphone territory. It has a magnesium casing, and there is a USB 3.0 port and a microSD card slot on the tablet itself. The 12.3-inch screen (2,736x1,824 pixels) is bright, with good sharpness and colour accuracy. It runs the latest Intel processors with powerful graphics, and offers battery life in the range of 5-12 hours, depending on usage.
HP Envy 13
Microsoft smartphones with Continuum
₹ 5,927 (Display Dock); works with Lumia 950 ( ₹ 43,699) and Lumia 950 XL ( ₹ 49,399)
