So what devices for us at T3 Towers literally take multi-tasking and better time management to a whole new level? Read on for our ultimate productivity suggestions! Whether facing a deadline, set for a presentation or all set to take on the rigours of a few days at CES, these are few gadgets you must consider!

Huawei Mate 30 Pro

A true flagship, this one, with a distinctive curved form factor and a pioneering camera form that most brands are fast imitating. The Mate 30 Pro 5G is equipped with the powerful Kirin 990 5G chipset which supports SA and NSA networks. The incredible ultra-curved horizon .Key to this is a 6.53” OLED screen that curves dramatically on both sides. The 4 camera include a 40-megapixel f/1.6 RYYB lens that breaks from digital camera tradition and a 3D TOF sensor for amazing bokeh effects. Oh, and let’s not forget, it captures ultra slow motion videos slowed down to a brilliant 256x.

Lenovo Yoga C940

Sandblasted and carved from aluminium, this flagship device is also one of the first devices to enjoy the benefits of Intel’s 10th generation Core processors and Project Athena, with Intel Deep Learning Boost (Intel DL Boost) and Intel Gaussian Network Accelerator (GNA). Project Athena intelligently tracks what users need on a laptop. Machines thus equipped can wake up in under a second, are on connected standby, offer far-field voice services, and tune battery performance. With the use of AI, users can shift content from their laptop display to a connected monitor with just a flick of their eyes—thanks to eye- tracking Glance software. When they step away the device, the display automatically darkens as content is saved, to protect both privacy and work.

Twelve South StayGo USB-C Hub

Lets face it, devices are not getting any better connected. Not that we’re complaining, as that feeds our desperate hunger for slimmer form factors. That said, the StayGo USB-C hub delivers all the ports you need, but with a setup long enough to neatly tuck away and keep the front of your workspace clean and tidy. The included 6”  travel cable stores inside the hub, and ignoring ‘trends’ in a wireless world, this hub has ethernet and SD slots for creative professionals.

Manu Qube

Beautifully realised, the key theme here is a wireless charging device that can charge your tech and be beautiful at the same time; the best of both worlds. Fusing the power of a wireless charger and a battery pack the Manu Cube consists of a base, the wireless charger, and a top, a wireless charger and powerbank in one.

DJI Osmo Mobile 3

Smooth…buttery smooth…. the 3-axis gimbal on the Osmo Mobile 3 literally takes out shaky footage. Its lightweight, ultra-responsive and reacts to your movements in real time, letting you focus more on the moment at hand. And that powerful combination of electronic image stabilization and gimbal stabilization makes this an easy choice for those Hyperlapse videos. As we head to CES this year, a device like the Osmo Mobile 3 will work wonders…

Think of it as being connected in style. For the travellers among us, this is a classy way of carrying those oh-so-critical cables, adaptors and hubs. A collection of elastic bands, Velcro straps and a pocket are all the haven for your go-to accessories.
