Worried About Getting Your Work Done on the Plane if Laptops are Banned?

Here are some tips to make sure you can stay productive on your long flight.

The Department of Homeland Security is debating whether or not to ban laptops on European flights into the United States. Designed to be a safety measure, the ban poses a problem for business passengers that prefer to spend the flight time to catch up on work.

Fortunately, there are many gadgets that augment a smartphone or tablet to make it like a full-functioning laptop. For example, mobile device holders that connect to the headrest or tray table in front of you can help you make the most of a smaller screen.

Accompany your device holder with a wireless keyboard for mobile devices and you won’t have to worry about typing up e-mails on a touch screen.

While it probably isn’t as convenient as a laptop, you should be able to get your work done on a long flight despite the laptop ban if you take the time to buy a couple tools to help you make the most of your mobile devices.
