Technology And Travel

19 04 2013

Our travel technology consists of the following:

Nexus 7 tablet
Nexus 4 unlocked 3g phone
1T Samsung portable drive
USB On the Go Cable
2no Fuji compact cameras

Why have we taken the above?

I was banned from taking the laptop because the temptation to drift into work mode would be too great. The Nexus 7 was taken as the next best thing to keep in touch email etc but it lacked 3G. Nexus 4 was duly purchased to cover this shortfall and it has been truly indispensable on our trip to new Zealand.

On the go cable was purchased to allow connection to other USB peripherals. So far it has been successful with mouse, a wireless keyboard and camera. It won’t work with the Samsung portable drive. Apparently the device needs to be rooted to work.

The portable drive contains backup of travel documents and some work files. I do have drop box but was semi reluctant to put some personal information online in case of a breach.

So far we have been able to do most things on the phone and Nexus. I am glad we made this decision as it has saved a lot of weight being unnecessarily carried.
