You’ve probably heard of the Consumer Electronics Show (also known as CES) in Las Vegas, and frequently the gadgets that get the most press from CES are electronics prototypes or the robotic technologies that cost tens-of-thousands of dollars. But we are here to share two of our favorite, readily available and relatively affordable consumer electronics that were top picks at CES 2017, both of which have the ability to integrate into your existing business device strategy today.
- Samsung Galaxy A Series – If you’re someone who wants a smartphone with great functionality at a reasonable price, this may be the perfect phone for you! Specifically, the new perfectly sized and least expensive A3 model (the smallest of the A series, which has similar dimensions to the iPhone 7) boasts a waterproof design that is rated for submersion up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes and features improved fingerprint sensor technology. Additionally, the sleek new design makes it easy to forget that this phone is less than half the price of Galaxy’s flagship S7 phone. If you’re looking for a mid-priced Android smartphone, look no further than Samsung’s new Galaxy A series.
- Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 – This new tablet meets laptop is the latest innovation from Dell that seems to signal that their brand is, once again, on the rise. Dell’s XPS 13 laptop was already being hailed as one of the best – if not the best – Windows laptop on the market, and this next generation 2-in-1 brings all the great features of the XPS 13 laptop together with the added benefits of a touchscreen and the ability to utilize Dell Active Pen inputs. According to the experts at CNET “this new version of the XPS 13 adds a hybrid hinge and thinner body, and the edge-to-edge, nearly bezel-free display makes maximum use of space, and the starting price is extremely reasonable.” With no compromise on design integrity and the latest Intel Core processor we’re confident that this Ultrabook will quickly shine as one of the best Windows driven technologies on the market.
