IDAPT i4 Universal Charger
This sleek accessory charges up to four different mobile electronics simultaneously and is compatible with the iPad and iPhone 4, as well as 4,000 different mobile electronic devices including BlackBerry, Nintendo DS, PSP, digital cameras, GPS systems and Bluetooth products. With three charging ports and an additional USB charging port to meet all charging needs, it features an interchangeable tip system, making it completely customizable. Available in black, white or silver, it includes six of the most popular tips: miniUSB, microUSB, iPod/iPhone, Samsung 4, Nokia 2 and Sony Ericsson 2. $59.99.

Tumi Travel Workout Player
Step away from the hotel buffet and put that workout gear on, pronto! From the travel aficionados at Tumi comes this nifty gizmo that makes staying fit on the road a cinch. The lightweight, compact, clip-on device includes a pedometer with 3D motion analysis, heart rate monitor, stopwatch, 4GB MP3 player and FM radio. It also comes with earbud headphones and a USB cable. Now get stepping! $165.

LG Mobile Digital Television and DVD Player
This is not your run-of-the-mill portable DVD player, no sir. This gizmo also picks up mobile DTV reception, so you can watch TV when in range of a digital signal — even in the back seat of a car or zipping along on a high-speed train. The 7-inch screen can be tilted to your preferred viewing angle, and when not in use the clamshell-style screen folds down and the device shrinks to about 9.5 inches by 6.5 inches — the size of a small hardback book. It plays DVD movie discs and audio CDs, displays JPG photos and plays WMA music files from its USB 2.0 connection. Equipped with two headphone jacks so you can tune in with a friend, it also boasts both AC and auto power adaptors, a remote control and a removable battery that powers the device for up to 4.5 hours, 2.5 hours in TV mode. $249.99.

Jorno Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard
This foldable Bluetooth keyboard turns your iPhone, iPad or Android into a fully functioning laptop — how cool is that? Bluetooth connectivity lets you pair the keyboard with your mobile device and position the keyboard anywhere you like. It folds down to the size of a deck of cards to easily fit in your pocket or bag, and includes a detachable cradle to hold your device in either portrait or landscape orientation. The keyboard, with keys that are only 15 percent smaller than a standard model, is also rigid when unfolded, allowing you to type in your lap. $79. (Special pre-order price; available in early 2011.)

Mondrian Doha Review

I was part of a group of travelers attending the Hamad International Airport Expansion presentation in Doha. Most arrived the day before, but due to a family commitment, I arrived the following day. A driver picked me up at the airport and drove me to the sleek and modern Mondrian Doha, designed by Marcel Wanders of the Netherlands. The 270-room property was the first sbe hotel in the Middle East. My luggage was scanned and put aside for a hand check and the guard removed the little sleep sound device I use to cover city noise when I sleep and travel. “No speakers allowed,” the guard said, but once I explained what the item was he allowed me to take it. From there, check-in was swift, and I received a packet of information about dinner and the week’s agenda.
