- Email – ’nuff said
- Make video and voice calls – use FaceTime, Skype and other tools, along with your earbuds, to make calls from anywhere
- Meet – whether you use GoToMeeting or just get creative with voice and video tools, you can run a meeting from anywhere
- Access your files – DropBox and other cloud-based tools allow you to access your documents from anywhere
- Present documents like you would on paper – just open up a PDF or other document on your iPad and swipe through it. Or bring along a presentation, report, whitepaper, video or other document.
- Get the power of your phone without a tiny screen – you probably can’t go without your smartphone, but an iPad can give you that bigger screen and ease of sharing with a client that a phone makes difficult.
- Gain portability – an iPad is easier to slip into your folio, purse or briefcase, without adding the weight of a laptop.
