If you are like most people, having access to mobile technology isn’t something you wish for. It’s almost a given. Because we live in an age that allows people to work remotely from almost anywhere, mobile phones have become just as important as laptops to get online. A new device that’s not a laptop is the closest to Douglas Adams’ vision of books. Technology is not just about apps and other gadgets. It’s about having the best internet access, no matter where you travel.
