A mobile phone is a mobile phone, no matter what it does: is that statement correct? The answer is both yes, and no, for we have to consider that business mobiles may well be very different indeed for those used by the man in the street.
Recent innovations have enabled the mobile phone to become something of a miniature entertainment centre: smart phones can show videos (and make them), play music and more, and while these are all very impressive features, they are not the general requirements of business mobiles; in simple terms, the businessman needs a miniature laptop, for being able to browse the internet and send emails, open documents and the like is essential to the smooth running of any business whether in or out of the office.
Business mobiles come with a raft of features and tend to be powered by computer style chips and operating systems, making them very powerful and very versatile indeed; it is this capability that has opened up the commercial world in a way that we could not have imagined possible just a few years ago. The manufacturers have become aware that there are set requirements for business mobiles, and the signs in the market are that they are responding with enthusiasm.
