Getting Work Done on the Move

One thing that will never change is Murphy ’s Law. It is when you are away from your desk at work or home that the most important work comes up. It can be anything, from replying to an important email, or looking up a contact in your email address book, to analyzing reports or writing an important note. Let’s have a look at the best way to getting your work done on the go, using a tablet.

Why a Tablet Is Better Suited

If you are comfortable lugging your laptop and all its accessories like a charger, carry case, etc, skip this and read the remaining post (maybe we can even convince you to change your mind). If you are looking to get some work done, without carrying a huge bag, then join us as we examine how tablets are if not better, then at least a more practical option.

Better Battery Life

While you will be lucky to get enough juice from a laptop to make it last for two to three hours, a tablet is designed to give you at least six to seven hours of battery life. This makes it more practical. You don’t have to hunt for a charging plug every couple of hours, and focus on something more important – your work. A better battery not only helps you to finish your work, but also provide you with more time to relax after work, like watching a movie, or catching up with some personal mail.

Apps Designed to Get Things Done on a Tablet

No doubt, a PC or a laptop is designed to help work faster and more efficiently, but its ability to do that come from the option to install various software, from a word processor, a pdf reader, a browser and maybe a chat and email client. The good news is that these applications or apps as they are popularly known, are available for your Tablet too. With more than one lakh applications available on the Android market, there is definitely one or the other app which will suit your requirement however unique it may be. And the best part is that most of them are free or extremely reasonable priced (like Rs 50 – Rs 100).

Ability to Surf The Internet Better

With the tablet having large screens – from seven inch and above, browsing websites is a breeze. You are no longer restricted to the mobile versions of your favorite website or blog, and you enjoy full functionality. Add features such as multi touch and zoom, the experience becomes more user friendly than on a PC or a laptop, and definitely better than on a mobile phone.

Ability to Collaborate Better

Apart from checking websites, and looking at spreadsheets and documents, one of the most essential requirements for getting work done is to collaborate with people. The tablet makes this function less of a task and more of a fun activity. Consider chat applications from Gmail or just any other provider, and the icing on the cake is to be able to make video calls and enjoy face to face communication.

Connectivity on the go

If you have ever worked on the move with a laptop, then you would have gone through the trauma of hunting for Wi-Fi networks, or carrying a data card with you. With the advent of tablets, this is a thing of the past. Now you can use your tablet’s GPRS connection or even better 3G to go online and get connected, seamlessly and easily.

Getting your work done on the move has never been so easy , practical and fun. It’s time to give tablets a try, and we promise you will get hooked on to it.
