Is it okay to assume that the overwhelming rush of smartphones and tablets have made notebooks the endangered species of the gadget world? If you assume that notion, then you are mistaken. Terribly mistaken. While some technologies do get out of date and cease to exist, others move on. Call this technological evolution, if you will.

This is the era of do what you dowhile on the move. Professionals keep in touch with their businesses and their work, and it doesn’t matter if they are in the office, or somewhere outside the office. With each passing day, we are introduced to some new improvement.

Innovations like cloud computing have made the ‘office’ something that you can carry around. Existing technologies are moving forward and becoming more advanced. As per the stats provided by IDC, that the number of mobile workers is increasing. By the year 2015, the population of mobile workers would reach a staggering 1.3 billion, representing about 37.2 percent of the total workforce, with most significant gains coming from emerging economies such as Middle East.

Mobile Workers – Choice of Devices

Among all the technology giants currently in the notebook market, Samsung seems to be edging ahead of the crowd. Let us be honest, who wouldn’t like world’s thinnest notebook? Exactly.

Samsung released second generation Series 9 notebooks last year in 13″ and 15″ models. Apart from being ‘thinnest’ it is also very powerful. Equipped with a 3rd generation Intel Core processor, this can handle your everyday work needs perfectly.

But if you’re looking for something compact to handle your personal needs, then think about Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. This beast of a tablet has everything. Social media user? No problem, it can handle anything from Facebook, Twitter to YouTube.

Tablet sales are on the rise, and for now, there’s no stopping it. According to IDC’s reports 139.1 percent growth was reported in the first quarter of 2013.

While some go for the tablet, and some for the notebook, when it comes to productivity and solid performance the notebook is considered better.

So, would it be alright if we combine those factors into tablet? I guess that would be just about perfect. Well, then say hello to Samsung’s ATIV Smart PC Pro! For professionals this is a great device because it combines the portability and robustness of a tablet with the performance factor of a notebook. It is powered by Windows 8 and the keyboard can be detached from the monitor.

Oh, and there are two cameras and HD display. You can carry it around easily because it weighs only 877 grams and is just 11.89mm thin. Also comes with an S-pen, which is pressure sensitive. The moment you write something on the device using this magical pen, it becomes a digital document. So, all your scribbling would now be available to you digitally as well.

So, are you a mobile worker? which is your favorite device (s). Let us know in the comments!
