If you are an entrepreneur or work for an SMB, in all likelihood you think of your smartphone along the lines of the once prominent American Express Card theme:  You DON’T leave home – or your office – without it.

 

There are so many articles about how smartphones are usefulness for businesses.  In a sense it’s like a miniature computer, but with telephone capabilities and it is small enough to easily carry around wherever you go.

 

With a smartphone you can answer a call and check your email or browse the web for news or search for a vendor.  You can take a photo or a short video and easily upload it to your company’s Facebook page or Twitter.

 

Plus there are many apps that are made especially to help business owners. Verizon Wireless recently introduced the ideal business smartphone -- the DROID BIONIC™ by Motorola, the first Verizon Wireless smartphone to combine 4G LTE with the power of dual-core 1 GHz processors, 1 GB of RAM and a stunning 4.3-inch qHD display using scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass with dual-layer anti-reflective coating.

 

The raves for the DROID BIONIC and its 4G technology just keep coming!

 

For example, the DROID BIONIC introduces a host of groundbreaking applications and accessories that turn the device into a productivity hub, a ruler of remote access and a purveyor of virtuality.   A must-have feature is ZumoCast™, an app that lets customers bring their digital world of pictures and documents stored on their computers at home or the office to their handset via remote access.  Cool, no?

 

With its revolutionary Webtop application, DROID BIONIC can beam a full-featured Firefox® Web browser 4.0, email or documents to a TV or monitor using accessories like the separately purchased Lapdock™ with a 11.6” screen, keyboard and integrated trackpad. 

 

Accessories such as the HD Station let DROID BIONIC users turn the phone into an entertainment center or home office.  Customers can view pictures, video, and content from the DROID BIONIC on any HDTV or monitor by connecting a separately sold HDMI cable.  And, of course, the DROID BIONIC lets customers share their 4G LTE signal with up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices (tablets, laptops) when they activate the Verizon Wireless Mobile Hotspot.  The device of the future today, the DROID BIONIC also includes the following features:

 

  • Business ready with advanced security policies; resizable and scrollable email, calendar and task widgets; device and SD card encryption; and Citrix® GotoMeeting® and Citrix Receiver™ for Android
  • 4.3-inch qHD screen using scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass with dual-layer anti-reflective coating
  • 8-megapixel autofocus camera with flash and 1080p HD video capture
  • Front-facing camera for video chat over 4G LTE, 3G or Wi-Fi
  • Adobe® Flash® pre-loaded
  • HTML 5 capable
  • Supports wireless chargers

 

On a personal note, having had no electricity for five whole days during the recent October snow storm, I was truly thankful for my DROID BIONIC which not only allowed me to check my company emails and make phone calls, but it gave me access to the web allowing me to get the latest news on the weather condition in my area.  While only depending on my smartphone, I truly realized the importance of the network and the speed of my connection.  For businesses, consider 4G speed especially when working in a remote environment, on the road or unable to be in the office on a regular basis. You need the speed to get work done.
