SAN FRANCISCO (Business 2.0 Magazine) -- For Business 2.0's globally-themed August issue, we decided to look at the best gadgets, gizmos, and other gear that just isn't available in U.S. stores.

The bad news: From smartphones to breath strips, foreigners are beating us to market with some of the coolest business tools.

But thanks to the increasingly global, Web-based economy, there are indeed ways of getting your hands on these hard-to-find goodies. We've included approximate U.S. prices, as well as websites that have ordering information.

Besides, there's always the possibility of sneaking some shopping into your next business trip abroad.

Trust us -- the Boots caffeine strips alone just might make a trip to London worth your while.
