Still the best tablet out there (until the iPad 3's likely March debut), the iPad 2 keeps you stylishly connected to the world when out on the road.
Notebook? Check. Smartphone and trusty tablet? Check. USB adapter … D'oh! There's nothing more exasperating for road warriors than finding themselves traveling without the essential tools they need to do their jobs, whether it's taking notes out in the field, keeping connected to the office from a far-flung location, or even just keeping all gadgets charged and ready to go. In today's digital age, the number of gizmos seems only to be increasing, and it's easy to get bogged down with technology that isn't really necessary or is overly complex to use. At the same time, the resurgence of tablet computing, the rise of wireless technologies and the ubiquity of WiFi access mean road warriors today have more options than ever to stay connected and productive. Here's a look at 10 gadgets that can help boost productivity when on the go, no matter where the journey takes you.
