Every entrepreneur will know how technology is now at the heart of every small business. From using the Shopify app to process customer payments to integrating productivity tools like Evernote into core business practices, it seems as though all entrepreneurs are going to have to become a little more tech-savvy.
But obviously being an entrepreneur requires us to carry out a never-ending variety of daily tasks. And it can be difficult to do this if we are shackled to a desktop computer. So which tablets on the market are best-suited to our business operations?
Integration into business environment – Microsoft Surface Pro 4
Whilst Microsoft’s apps have yet to rival the prevalence of iOS and Android apps, it’s clear that Microsoft software still rules many of our working environments.
And it’s not just the Microsoft Surface Pro 4’s ability to work seamlessly with Windows 10 software like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint that makes it such a great choice for entrepreneurs. This is because this powerful tablet also comes equipped with a handy stylus for note-taking, and its innovative fold-out keyboard will make any long emails a lot easier than using a touchscreen.
Graphical excellence – Apple iPad Pro 10.5in
Of course, there’s more to being an entrepreneur than just spreadsheets and emails. And if you’re looking to impress potential clients with an innovative graphics presentation, then the Apple iPad Pro 10.5in is hard to beat.
This phenomenally powerful tablet might not be the cheapest option out there, but with the Apple A10X Fusion chip providing enough processing power to match many desktops, it’s more than capable of all manner of data-heavy tasks.
Cost-effective multitasking – Asus ZenPad 3S 10
Thankfully there are plenty of cheaper tablets that can deliver plenty of functionality without bankrupting your business. Pick of the bunch has to be the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 which has a crystal clear IPS display, and its gorgeous design masks its incredibly competitive price.
Another big selling point of the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is the way that it handles its Android operating system flawlessly which means that it’s a great entertainment device too. So that if you want to watch a TV show on a lunch break you can load up your Android Netflix app, or if you want to celebrate a good day’s work, then a list of sites can be found here for some bingo games that will all work perfectly on this stylish tablet.
A tablet for the shopfloor – Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7
And finally, when it comes to a light, portable, and classy device that’s durable enough to be carried around on the shopfloor, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is a good choice.
Not only is the tablet’s 9.7-inch display able to display colors with an impressive amount of accuracy, but it’s a particularly reliable device too which makes it a strong option when taking payments through an Android POS app like Shopify.
And with a very powerful processor and a long-lasting battery life, it’s clear that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is another strong entry into the competitive tablet market.
