Callmaster Mobile’s Top 3 Last minute Mothers Day gift suggestions

Did you know that Mothering Sunday is this weekend? Of course you didn’t, because you forgot again, didn’t you? You could run to the local florist and pick up a last minute bunch of flowers for mum, but really, that’s a bit more hassle than it’s worth, isn’t it? Everyone else has also forgotten, so you’re going to have to be fighting the crowds and dealing with bad-tempered florists who are stressed out because people like you who have left it so late in the day to order!

Besides, flowers only end up dead, don’t they? It’s the pointless gift that mum has to throw away within a week. So, you should buy her something that will last a little bit longer than that.

Let’s face it though, every time you try and buy your mum a present, she fakes that she loves it because she’s your mum, and that’s her job – but really, she’ll never use it. So, if you’re going to get her the wrong gift that she won’t like anyway, why not get her something that YOU can at least have some fun with?

1. FREE new iPad 16GB Wifi & 3G – All it costs you is £33.40 + VAT per month (just over £40) and we give you the data SIM and allowance (1.5GB) included – think about it your Mum spent more than £40 a month on you for a lot longer than 24 months :)

2. FREE iPhone 4S 16GB with 300 minutes, 250 texts & 1GB data access all for just £30 + VAT per month – Give Mum the ultimate present to keep in touch when you need that lift or a last minute babysitter :)

3. FREE Nokia Lumia 710 with 300 minutes, 250 texts & 1GB data access & Xbox 360 4GB for just £30 + VAT per month – Mum’s love playing with their kids, especially Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 online and you can spend Sunday afternoon creating her Xbox Live avatar :)

For details of how to get any of these offers please go to http://www.callmastermobile.co.uk/content/contact and get in touch with us. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee delivery of these gifts before Sunday but what the hell, paper IOU’s have worked for years havent they!!

Nokia Lumia 710 – a good business device?

It has been a busy few weeks so I have only just had the chance to get my hands on the new Nokia Lumia 710, I am currently running the Lumia 800 as my phone at the moment, I love it, the seamless integration with our IT through Microsoft Office 365 is brilliant and I can’t face the idea of being without it now.

So the question in my head was, “would the 800’s little sibling be as good?”

First impressions are good, the materials used to build the handset are of a decent quality, there is no budget plastic feel here, it looks good and the curves fit in my hand nicely (probably better than the 800 if I am honest). It’s all going to be about the touchscreen experience and the speed of the processor when opening applications now, and I am pleased to say it is a dead heat, it is as quick as it’s big brother.

It doesn’t have the fiddly “push and slide” access to the charging port and SIM card that the 800 does which I think will help with device life and it can boast a removable back cover and battery so you can have spares for it for those heavy users amongst you.

In summary, I am impressed by the device and it’s price point that makes it an affordable option for corporate customers looking to deploy smartphone devices to their entire team fully funded by the network.

Give me some time with the device and I will provide you with a more detailed review, but from the time spent with it, YES it is a good business device.

I did get my hands on a BlackBerry 9790 this week, I like it, the full QWERTY keypad which I love, and still miss to this day, fast responsive touchscreen if you want to or you can use the trackpad, it’s lightweight, it’s thin but it appears to pack a punch. I am going to speak to our business partners Cloud Business (www.cloudbusiness.co.uk) about getting one of them active on our Microsoft Office 365 account to see how it handles my working day with Sharepoint, Exchange and Excel, watch this space.
