Ultimate road-warrior tech at CeBIT

Summary:We've spent the week walking the 30-plus halls at CeBIT to pick out the best pieces of kit for the serious road warrior — whether your need is small, light and cheap or a bit more esoteric, there will be something here for you

For those long flights to CeBIT, this General Mobile G777 phone could come in handy. It has fairly standard features for the most part, with GPRS support and 3-megapixel camera. The notable exception is the headset to the left in the picture below, which makes this phone the device to take on longhaul flights, particularly if your company policy dictates that you travel in economy.

The headset contains two tiny screens with a lens arrangement that projects a image of the phone's QVQA screen onto the retina of each eye. While there's nothing new about such headsets — they have been around for at least a decade in one form or another — it is novel to find one attached to a phone.

A Micro CD card slot means full-length movies can be watched in total privacy on a plane; the example on the stand was showing The Hills Have Eyes II.
