"I recently asked a Google spokesperson about how Android stacks up in the enterprise. She insisted that the Android is a consumer device – for now. "We plan to support more enterprise applications and features on top of our existing structure in the future, but we don't have anything specific to share at this time," she said.

"1. TripIt Having used TripIt to stay organized during several trips over the past few months, I can vouch for its effectiveness.

TripIt synchs with your calendar and social networking sites, emails alerts to colleagues, provides maps and route details and sets alarms so you don't forget to arrive at the airport with enough time to suffer through the security line. The Pro version will track your frequent flier miles and rewards points, alert you of such nuisances as gate changes or delays, and help you find an alternate flight in the event that yours has been cancelled."
