Corporate Customer Handset Choices

Most people choose to upgrade their handset when taking out a new contract tariff to take advantage of the latest technology. We have stocks of all the popular devices available on any network.

There are major differences between the market leaders, although the majority are so called "Smartphones" that are "App" driven. Three main operating systems drive the performance of your phone that may be a deciding factor in your choice. Apple uses their excellent iOS that easily integrates with iPads, iTunes and iTouch if you're already part of the Apple Family.

Samsung, HTC and Nexus use the Google-owned Android system. Blackberry uses their proprietary operating system only found in their products.

How do I Choose the Right Phone for My Business?

There are additional demands for the business user over a regular consumer which may influence which handset you choose. The focus is more on performance, reliability and secure integration with your office applications than games and Facebook updates! Below is our helpful guide on are some of the features available that you may require.

Instant Email and Messaging Notification

It's essential that urgent and important emails and messages are delivered to you immediately. Apple and Android have "Push" technology built into their operating systems that send messages directly to your device as soon as the mail server receives them. Once activated, you do not have to keep refreshing your mail client to check if any new email has arrived.

Integrating With Your Company's Software

You may need to access your company's data whilst on the move and integration used to be difficult. Blackberry is perhaps more advanced in direct integration, although you could simply have a secure website that helps you access the desired information. Advanced Apps are constantly being developed to access third party data, and some of the larger CMS providers allow access in this manner.

Integrated and QWERTY Keyboards

All original phones had physical keys on the front, and most Blackberrys still have a QWERTY keyboard underneath the screen. All Smartphones activate a keyboard when entering data in a field, and it's mainly personal preference on which one to choose.

Which Phone do I Choose?

If you have other Apple devices, then selecting an iPhone provides a seamless interface across the range. Syncing data is automatic, with backups sent to the Apple Cloud. Android also offers Cloud backup options, although syncing all devices can sometimes be more of a challenge. Other manufacturers are also in this market, including Acer, Doro, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and Toshiba.
