If your organisation is looking for an outstanding business smartphone then they need look no further than the Nokia Lumia 620.
The latest addition to Nokia’s Lumia smartphone family has a great combination of good looks and great hardware, and it’s powered by the Windows Phone 8 operating system, which is perfect for all your work needs – not to mention your personal and social ones!
Fast and easy to use, the Lumia 620 will show your latest emails, news, documents and people updates as soon as they happen with the innovative Live Tiles on your Start screen.
If you still need convincing, here are 10 reasons why the Nokia Lumia 620 is a great smartphone for business.
1. Seamless synchronisation across Windows devices and services
Your Lumia 620 offers seamless integration with your Windows PC and existing IT infrastructure.
As the vast majority of businesses use Microsoft software, such as Microsoft Exchange, Office, Lync and SharePoint, your Lumia 620 will sync perfectly with the work you are doing on your Windows PC.
For example, all your office contacts, emails and calendar appointments from Outlook will be updated instantly on your Lumia 620 – exactly as it is on your PC.
It’s all extremely easy to set up – sign in with your username and login and then you’re ready to go. Everything works together and makes your life easier.
2. Business Tools
The Nokia Lumia 620 comes with mobile versions of all Microsoft’s popular desktop tools – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and SharePoint. It’s all ready to go straight out of the box.
The benefits are immense – you’ll be able to work on the same documents on your PC and your Lumia smartphone with full synchronisation between the two. If you’re editing a document on your PC, those changes will appear when you look at the same document on your Lumia 620, and vice versa.

Ensuring that your emails, contacts and documents are secure is of vital importance. Your Lumia smartphone has a range of essential security measures that meets the most stringent IT requirements.
It has hardware accelerated encryption, remote locking and wipe, safer web browsing and protection measures to prevent you from downloading malicious applications. With device management support, IT departments can remotely secure and manage entire fleet of Nokia Lumia devices.
Don’t take our word for it – the experts also agree:
“Windows Phone is safe, we’ve seen no malware at all targeting the platform. You want a safe phone? Buy a Windows Phone,” –Mikko Hyppönen, Security Chief, F-Secure.

4. Navigation and Location-based apps
Travelling is a fact of modern working life, so you’ll need the best navigation tools on your smartphone. Nokia’s HERE location platform is so good that it powers all Windows Phone devices – not just our own!
In addition to maps, which can work offline, you can get turn-by-turn navigation with Nokia Drive, find your way around public transport with Nokia Transit and look for nearby points of interest with the augmented reality app, Nokia City Lens.
So, even if you‘re in an unfamiliar city, your Lumia will help you find where you need to go. You’ll never be late for another meeting again!
5. Nokia Expert Centre
By choosing Nokia Lumia, your company can keep the total cost of ownership (TCO) to an absolute minimum. Unlike some of our competitors, there are no additional license fees to be paid for back-end services you already have invested in.
In fact, we offer a free service called the Nokia Expert Centre, which offers IT departments and advanced users, support and advice on Nokia products and business solutions.
6. People & Messaging
Communication and staying in touch with your colleagues is extremely important to ensure that everything goes smoothly. Your Lumia 620 is set up specifically to put your contacts at the centre of the smartphone experience.
The People Hub lets you manage your messages and contacts with minimum effort. You can also create groups so that you can send emails or instant messages to a particular group all at once.
If real time communication is what you need, there’s also Microsoft Lync Mobile, so you can see if people are online, message them, show other people your status and join in with group chats.
With further options such as Skype, Viber, WhatsApp and many others, there are always plenty of ways for you to get your message across with the Lumia 620.
7. Apps on Windows Phone
Underlining the Nokia Lumia 620’s fantastic suitability for work and for getting your office tasks done is the fast growing ecosystem of Windows Phone apps. These can help you to stay informed and to stay in touch.
CNN, Bloomberg and LinkedIn are all useful apps for busy professionals. Plus, if you just want a bit of fun there are plenty apps to entertain you, such as Nokia Music or Netflix, not to mention the hundreds of games that you can download.
8. Collaboration and Storage
As I mentioned earlier, the Lumia 620 works seamlessly with Microsoft products. You can collaborate on documents with colleagues and save and access them via SharePoint directly from your smartphone.
The Lumia 620 comes with 8GB internal memory and Micro SD support up to 64GB. That’s a lot of space already, but there’s also cloud storage 7GB for free on SkyDrive. Once again, you’ll be able to access your SkyDrive documents or images from your smartphone or any computer with an Internet connection.
9. World-class design and materials
OK, it sounds superficial but isn’t it good to have a smartphone that looks great and one that has been designed and manufactured with a lot of love and care? That’s the Nokia Lumia 620.
It’s been made with a Dual Shot approach, which means it has two layers of premium polycarbonate, to give a transparency and depth to its bold and wide range of colours. Just because you’re using a work phone doesn’t mean it has to be boring!
It’s also worth noting the signature durability of Nokia smartphones here. There’s no way you’re going to be cut off from work because a minor accident wrecked your phone. And the employers who provision the phones will have fewer returns and less downtime to worry about.
I haven’t even mentioned the camera with its digital lenses, such as Smart Shoot and Cinemagraph, the 3.8-inch display, which has the same sunlight readability enhancements as the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820, or even the exchangeable shells.
The Nokia Lumia 620, with Windows Phone 8, is an attractive proposition because of all of the above, and all the other reasons listed. But here’s the thing: At around $249 USD it is also extremely good value for money.
At this price point, with its great security, communication and productivity features and its unique ability to synchronise seamlessly with your desktop tools, the Lumia 620 is shaping up as a real business leader.
