Gear up! 5 Nokia accessories for smarter working
When it comes to helping you work smarter there are no smartphones better suited than the Nokia Lumia family of devices.
Built-in Microsoft Office and Outlook make working on the go super simple. While syncing documents and tasks via SharePoint, Office365 and SkyDrive can be done with a couple of touches. Add to that security that’s fit for business and it’s easy to see why more and more companies are making the switch to Nokia Lumia.
However, today’s professionals sometimes require a little extra to stay on top of it all and that’s where Nokia Gear comes in. Our award winning mobile accessories not only look great, they work great too. Here are five accessories we think will help make your working life better.
Nokia Power Keyboard
For business users who need to compose and edit numerous documents on the move, a virtual keyboard isn’t always enough, and so, for Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet owners, this keyboard is a must-have. Not only is it a fully-functional keyboard, but it also doubles as an extra battery and it features two USB slots, which means you can plug in a mouse, a USB storage device or any other gadget that will help you get your work done. Unlike some tablet keyboards, the Nokia Power Keyboard features a trackpad, meaning that your Lumia 2520 experience will differ from that of a full-sized laptop only in portability and convenience. The keyboard weighs only 571g, so it’s light enough to be ultra-portable, and when not in use, it folds around the tablet to protect it from damage.
Nokia Wireless Charging Car Holder
As business users are often on the move, one of the advantages of today’s smartphones is that they can double as GPS devices, thus cutting down on the amount of kit you’ll need to pack when heading off to a conference or to meet a client. The Nokia Wireless Charging Car Holder is a stand for your smartphone that allows you to prop your Nokia Lumia device onto the dashboard for easy navigation and charges your phone wirelessly as you go. Combine this with HERE, Nokia’s free navigation apps, and getting from A to B, with fewer cables and worries, has never been easier. The car holder works with Nokia Lumia devices that support wireless charging based on the Qi standard, and it even allows you to charge two devices at the same time via USB input.
Nokia Universal Portable USB Charger DC-19
A portable charger that’s only 99.5mm tall, the Nokia Universal Portable USB Charger DC-19 allows you to recharge your phone when you’re away from a power source. People often work in environments like airports and train stations where mains power is often inaccessible, and that’s where a device like this comes into its own. When fully charged itself, the charger holds enough power to completely recharge a smartphone with a little left over. Its LED indicators can tell you approximately how much charge remains, so you’ll know if you have enough juice for a quick refill. Essentially, though, the Portable USB Charger will effectively double your phone’s working capacity, so you won’t need to worry about conserving power while you’re trying to clear that inbox. The device itself charges via USB, so any laptop will be able to provide extra boost – the ideal travel companion.
Nokia Bluetooth Stereo Headset BH-121
Ideal for hands-free phone calls, this Bluetooth device is perfect for the office multi-tasker. It’s got a built-in voice prompt so you’ll never need to stop typing to fiddle about for buttons; it comes bundled with noise-blocking headphones if you don’t want to talk but need to block out ambient distractions in order to concentrate; its NFC pairing technology means you can use it with two phones simultaneously –meaning you can operate a work phone and a personal phone without removing or switching headsets. Finally, you can also pin its associated app to the home screen of your Windows Phone to check its battery levels and connectivity status.
Nokia Wireless Charging Stand
Finally, a simple time-saving, clutter-free device – a wireless charging stand. No more hunting for the connector: you simply place your phone on the stand and charging commences automatically, and when the light goes out, you’re ready to go. What’s more, you can use your phone while it’s charging so you don’t miss an essential call or email. The stand allows you to position your phone standing or lying flat, depending on which tasks you’d like to launch. It couldn’t be simpler: a streamlined gadget for a streamlined working life.
