Nokia is slowly pushing itself and Windows Phone deeper into the business and enterprise market with the latest announcement that the Lumia 920 will replace BlackBerries at Mall of America, the United States' largest retail and entertainment complex.
The reason for the switch boils down to tight integration with Windows Phone and the plethora of Microsoft services that are used at the company on a daily basis. Things like the built-in Microsoft Office suite could offer management teams greater flexibility in the workplace, which in turn makes for getting the job done more quickly.
According to Janette Smrcka, I.T. director at Mall of America, "Switching to the Nokia Lumia 920 has increased productivity for key team members. The combination of a great smartphone with built-in Microsoft Office suite enables our team to work collaboratively, and SkyDrive ensures we can back up and access our work, wherever we are and whenever we want."
"With more than 400 events every year, from music acts to celebrity book signings, the ability to capture, edit and share images from the Nokia Lumia 920's PureView camera enables team members to provide instant high-quality imagery and real time updates to social media fans and our business customers. When you combine this with all of the Windows Phone 8 platform's business capabilities, at a price we can afford, we've got a device we're really proud to use."
The Nokia Lumia 920, which runs on the Windows Phone 8 platform, allows users to gain access to many Microsoft apps and services right out of the box. Services and apps like Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and SkyDrive make for a very compelling experience for business and enterprise users compared to any other platform.
