Must Have Smartphone Features For Business

This is a guest post by Susan about must have business features for a Smartphone.Millions of Americans have already made the switch to a smartphone, but there are still many who've yet to make this transition. The market is expecting that within the space of a couple years, a majority of people will have one. If you're like many people who've yet to make the switch to the almighty smartphone, there are several advantages to having one depending on what you're using it for. These devices can do many things, but not all are created equally as far as phones go.

These digital Swiss army knives possess an astounding number of features that can do anything from balancing your budget to getting the best deal on a product, but you need to ask yourself which features will prove most handy. Smartphones are all about the apps and you need to understand your specific application requirements before setting on any certain phone. If you're a businessperson who's looking to switch up, here are a few smartphone features that are you should be looking for while shopping around:

Application Needs

Most people in business automatically gravitate towards the BlackBerry, and this would probably be the best choice for you. It's also important to note that, as the development of Smartphones improves, we're now seeing more comparable options on the market. You can go for the some of the Android series phones which has an impressive array of applications, but Apple is still the leading developer in this arena. This will probably change in the coming years, but for the time being, there's more diversity in the Apple market. Having the best apps and Technical Support means everything when getting the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Keypad Vs. Touchscreen

Having a keypad or a touchscreen, for the most part, is a matter of taste. Both options are pretty good, but some argue that having a keypad increases your phone's functionality. You might prefer to have a keypad that's able to handle data entry and input more effectively. Though touchscreens are great, they're usually better suited for the general user than for the needs of a person in business. Sometimes, though, it simply comes down to a matter of preference. The best choice will ultimately be whatever you feel more comfortable with.

Network Ability The new 4G Networks have proven faster and better for increased connectivity and ability. The 3G networks, though impressive, don't have the type of speed and reliability as the burgeoning 4G networks. This can mean all the difference if you're a mobile business and you need to stay connected and keep in touch with contacts. The one benefit of getting a 3G phone is that they're more competitively priced, but what you make up for in savings you lose in connectivity. Before you make any selection consider some of these aspects in order to decide what the best choice is for your unique needs. Whether you have a smartphone now or you're looking to switch in the near future, you have to think about usability and functionality. Make sure you go over all the specs of the options currently on the market so you can decide what option best suits your needs.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…
