NEC MobilePro 300E Pocket PC

This latest Pocket PC from NEC, the MobilePro 300E, has a good, but very common spec: a 206MHz StrongARM processor, 64MB of RAM, 32MB Flash ROM and a 3.5in TFT backlit 16-bit 320x240 colour screen (which isn’t bad, but isn’t as bright as that of the Toshiba e740).

There are few surprises on the software front, either — you get AIM (AOL Instant Messenger), MGI’s PhotoSuite for Pocket PC, a golf game and Acrobat Reader, on top of the standard Pocket PC 2002 application suite.

The 300E’s most obvious differences are its size and weight: 125x77x15mm and a touch under 150g. Although not as small as the Toshiba e310, it’s hardly bulky. It has a single Secure Digital slot at the top; if you want to plug in CompactFlash or PC Cards, you’ll need to buy a Rocketeer module that clips on the back. This module usefully includes a second battery, and there’s also a cool-looking sync cradle that’s illuminated in blue when it’s powered up.

The 300E slots into the front of the cradle, and there is room behind to dock the machine without having to remove the Rocketeer module. The cradle includes a slot for recharging a second battery.

NEC MobilePro 300E Pocket PC Price: $999

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
