Nokia Lumia 1520: A Better Windows Phone for Business Users?

Nokia Lumia 1520: A Better Windows Phone for Business Users?

Nokia’s Lumia 1520 could be the best Windows Phone device yet for small business owners.

The phone/tablet hybrid is expected to be unveiled at a Nokia event tomorrow (Oct. 22).

Reports say the phone will pack a powerful quad-core Snapdragon processor so it can keep up with top-of-the-line Android offerings like the Galaxy Note 3 .

And with a massive 6-inch, 1080p display, the device has enough screen real estate to handle real work – if you can handle the bulk.

The big screen means business users can make better use of Windows Phone’s “Live Tiles.” Instead of launching apps to check your calendar or view notifications, Live Tiles display relevant information right on your home screen — and the Lumia 1520’s big screen can display more tiles than ever before so you never miss a message or meeting.

Lumia 1520 users will also be able to take advantage of business-friendly features available on all-new Windows Phone devices, including full integration with Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud ecosystem for seamless switching between devices.

That means users can painlessly edit a Word document or PowerPoint presentation while on the go, then access the edited document from any other connected Windows Phone, tablet or PC.

Windows Phone 8 — the newest version of the Windows Phone operating system — launched late last year with a redesigned Office Hub that makes it easier to find documents and features better multitasking options.

Meanwhile, the built-in OneNote app can record voice-dictated notes with a single button press — even when your phone is locked.

New Windows Phones also feature an improved phone-wiping safeguard, which relies on PIN verification, to keep your important business files safe and secure.
