With more and more business users demanding greater flexibility and mobile solutions in their work, tablets have become a ubiquitous part of modern business today. But with so many available it can often be difficult to see the wood for the trees and a little guidance is in order.
That’s why we’ve compiled this list of three top tablets which are all more than capable devices for business use.
1. Toshiba Excite Write
From a reputable company like Toshiba you can expect quality and the Toshiba Excite Write tablet is no exception. Its super-high resolution screen affords a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution over the 10.1 inch screen and its Tegra 4 quad core processor, Android operating system and 2GB memory are more than capable at the helm.
The Toshiba Excite Write is a great device for business users due to its sophisticated look. The fact that certain models come bundled with a Bluetooth keyboard to make typing a much more efficient affair is even more appealing.
The Excite’s trim and lightweight body makes it perfect for business users who find themselves frequently on-the-go and can be easily carried or concealed in a small bag while travelling. Furthermore, the textured finish on its rear side makes the Excite Write easy to handle and less prone to slipping out of your hand.
2. Microsoft Surface Pro 3
Unlike the Toshiba, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 runs Windows 8.1, so smartphone users may find its operating system a little alien to start with. However, it won’t take long for you to get to grips with this tile-based operating system, which complements its PC counterpart perfectly.
The Surface Pro 3 an Intel Core i5 processor, a 12-inch screen with a 2160 x 1440 display and contains 4GB or 8GB RAM depending on the model you choose. These impressive specs make the Surface Pro 3 certainly no slouch when it comes to work.
Microsoft state that the Surface Pro 3’s battery lasts up to 9 hours when used for web browsing but this will be significantly reduced if more processor-intensive tasks are undertaken. Nevertheless, for a tablet with specs like these it’s definitely not a huge problem.
Its magnesium alloy body casing is something that makes the Surface Pro 3 very individual indeed and will appeal to business users who want to stand out from the crowd at conferences.
3. Apple iPad Air
No list of top business tablets would be complete without at least one Apple offering and this one is no exception. The Apple iPad Air is the firm’s flagship device and we can see why. Featuring a thinner and lighter chassis than previous iPads, the iPad Air is the sexiest iPad ever.
Business users with iPhones will find the Air’s operating system familiar, whereas Android users will need to get to grips with it before they start using it in anger. However, this shouldn’t be a large enough barrier to discount the Air.
With the most expensive model boasting 128 GB storage, the Air is definitely capable of handling everything that most business users can throw at it. Furthermore, its 2048 x 1536 screen resolution will be more than good enough for day-to-day business use. Finally, Apple have really worked wonders with the processor and despite it being just single core, it actually outperforms dual core fourth-generation iPads.
