You can decide that which device you want to buy:
Smartphone, laptop or tablet. But I think Tablet device is best for the businessman because of many reason. Many branded company sell their tablet but you should take a look on some tablet review site before you buy it so that it will help you to have some knowledge about its feature, its benefit, U can compare them for justifying that which of them is best.

http://whattabletisthebest.com/ is a same liked site where many people said their experience, review and comments about using tablets. You also can take a look on there.

HP is reviving the $99 fire sale this Sunday, December 11th at 7:00 PM ET at their eBay store. Get this link bookmarked, and put a reminder on your calendar. I have a feeling they will sell out in minutes, or even seconds:
