  • OtterBox Smartphone Cases

Having established a name for waterproof cases, OtterBox has in the last few years embarked upon a journey to create a comprehensive range of protective gear for most of the popular smartphones, tablets and e-reader devices out there. Well, I absolutely love the quality, clean design and protection afforded by my Reflex Series iPhone 4 case. Other categories of cases are available, too, such as the Defender Series for the greatest protection, Commuter Series for style and the Impact Series silicone sleeves.

  • Pepwave Surf On-The-Go

The Pepwave Surf On-The-Go (OTG) is really a sort of Swiss Army Knife for mobile Internet access. The device sports multiple distinct operation modes that will serve the traveling executive when on the move as well as back in the office. The OTG works as a Wi-Fi router when connected to a USB 3G/4G modem or an Ethernet cable/DSL modem. When connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot (or hotel Wi-Fi), the OTG is also capable of sharing the Wi-Fi connectivity with additional Wi-Fi devices. The Pepwave Surf On-The-Go can be purchased here.

  • Seagate GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage

The GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage is a battery-powered wireless external storage drive that gives users the ability to access its massive on-board 500GB of storage with their favorite tablet or smartphone. Either using the free iOS App or from a Web browser, video can be streamed using Wi-Fi to three iPad tablets simultaneously. Fully charged, the GoFlex Satellite provides up to five hours of operation, or 25 hours on standby. On wired, the GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage operates as a portable USB 3.0 disk drive.

  • T.A.C-1 Carbon Fiber Case

Looking for the ultimate protective case for your laptop? The T.A.C-1 (Tactically Advanced Composites) case is a hard shell case made from real carbon fiber that its maker claims meet (and exceed) MIL-STD 810 requirements. The incredibly strong casing incorporates a water-resistant zipper and is also TSA checkpoint-friendly. At the moment, the T.A.C-1 case is available for the MacBook Air, iPad and Sony Vaio VPC-Z1 and VPC-Z2, as well as for 13-inch, 15-inch and 17-inch laptops.

  • Waterfield iPad Travel Express

The iPad Travel Express is a snug fit for an iPad tablet and Apple wireless keyboard for those who need to work on the go. A rigid plastic insert helps keep the display screen intact while internal scratch-free pockets help protect (and hold) various other accessories. Produced directly in the United States by San Francisco firm Waterfield Designs, I've found the build quality of my iPad Travel Express (and other products from the company for that matter) to be extraordinarily well done.

  • ZAGGkeys SOLO keyboard

The ZAGGkeys SOLO is a portable Bluetooth wireless keyboard with a built-in stand that is suited for a number of tablets and smartphones. This includes the Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Galaxy Tabs and various other Android tablets and smartphones (specific compatibility information is available on the product website). Though the keyboard is slightly smaller than a full-sized keyboard, ZAGG claims its "island" (aka Chiclet) styled keys allows for maximum typing room.
