What makes for the right business phone?
February 25, 2009 1 Comment
So, along with no-frills tariffs (see the previous post), what would be the ideal business handset?
I’ve been looking into this, and here are a few thoughts:
– 2-3 days’ standby
– VoIP (SIP-based, ideally)
– USB charging
– Support for Exchange email
– Small enough to fit in a suit pocket
Not essential but useful:
– Multimedia features
– 3G or better – although this is less important than good battery life, see above.
I’m really not bothered by a keyboard (I have a BlackBerry) or a camera (have one of those too). But most handsets are either too large and too complex, or lack some or all of the features I need.
What do other people look for in a handset for work?
