Latest Business Mobiles
The Z30 is a serious contender when choosing your business partner. View and edit Microsoft® Word, Excel® and PowerPoint® on the go with the Documents To Go™ app. Then go large with the ability to connect to a screen via a micro HDMI cable or stream wirelessly with Miracast, for a presentation that truly makes an impact. With optimised BlackBerry® Paratek Antenna technology, you can ensure you have faster downloads and fewer dropped calls even with weak coverage – vital for communication with your customers, prospects and business associates, while the rather impressive battery life will keep you connected for up to 25 hours. Beyond convenient apps and features, the Z30 also incorporates BlackBerry®Balance™ technology. In principle, this technology gives you two devices by keeping any work content and personal content completely and securely separate. Perhaps our favourite feature, Blackberry balance certainly gives more private employees a breather and removes worry for your IT department. The BlackBerry® 10 OS also features the BlackBerry® Priority Hub, allowing you to view your important messages in a single swipe – whether it’s a BBM, SMS or even an email attachment, amongst others, offering quick access for the busy worker.
Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus
The new models from Apple feature an updated version of the Apple operating system – iOS 8. And the well-known, enterprise-grade security technologies built into iOS are even more powerful in the updated version. Data protection has been expanded into more apps and finer control over mail encryption has been enabled. In fact, Apple’s comprehensive approach to security takes the load of IT teams as iPhones can be deployed in virtually any environment. With a built-in framework for third-party mobile device management (MDM) solutions, large quantities of iPhone devices can be set up, configured and managed with ease and efficiency. While the Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor allows for another, effortless, security measure. The latest Apple models are also fitted with the new A8 chip, offering higher efficiency and better performance than previous Apple devices. Beyond security and swift performance, the iTunes store ensures that you can get the apps you need for your business.
HTC One M8
The One M8 from HTC is a highly rated model, particularly when it comes to design and form factor. Beyond sleek looks, the One M8 is a good business partner for ease of use and quick navigation. Firstly, unlike the Apple iPhone, the M8 can be woken up with a touch of the screen – no buttons involved. Secondly, the M8 features ‘Blinkfeed’. HTC Blinkfeed allows you to personalise your own stream of online content on your home screen. Whether that be your email, LinkedIn profile or the latest news in your industry – the HTC M8 allows you to quickly stay updated with what’s most important to you. The One M8 also features an expandable microSD slot that allows you to create a whopping 128GB of additional storage, and offers 50GB of free cloud-based storage, via Google Drive, that can be used over 2 years. Finally, there’s also a new battery conservation feature – ‘Extreme Power Saving Mode’. This mode, HTC claims, makes it possible to extend the life of your battery enormously; supposedly giving you 15 hours with just 5 percent battery left, and up to two weeks if the battery is already full! To do this, it cuts all of your connections and background apps, and essentially turns your phone into a feature phone. It even comes with an incredibly basic launcher that gets you manual access to calls, texts, email (on the Sense app, that is), calendar and calculator. A feature that will not be needed everyday but may just be a life saver when you’re running low on juice, and expecting that call from your very important prospect.
