Phone of choice for Business & Leisure
August 15, 2010 11:50pm CST
I was wondering, what phone should I be using if I am targeting for both business and leisure? I am working as assistant head of department where I need to use those task and calender on the phone and on leisure side, i would like my phone to be able to use for some surfing nets and stuffs. I was thinking of iphone but blackberry seems to be a good choice too. What do you think? Any suggestions? Currently I am using the old model of Samsung Omnia. Way...way out of tech now and I am going to buy a new one in a month or two!

A mobile phone for business may meet your needs. As you have said above, you need a phone for business and leisure, which is not a difficult task to find such a mobile phone to meet all your needs. As far as I know, these days, in the market, most mobile phones have the features of leisure, even if it is designed for business men. So, if you can purchase one phone for business, then this phone can also provide some interesting features for fun. Among all the popular products, Blackberry is a good choice indeed. You can purchase one following your budgets.

Yeah, I agree. These days, phones really don't come in "business" or "leisure" varietys. Perhaps, it's because these phones have become so much like computers, but the comparison is much the same. When computers first came out, they were all business, and if you wanted to have something for leisure you probably bought an Atari. They both were similar, but far different. In that same token, if you want to buy a computer today, it's really hard to find a computer that's "just business" or "just play". More than likely, it's the software you'll purchase with the computer that makes or breaks your intentions. If you want to play around you buy gaming software or use the internet for fun purposes. You want business you buy different software and use the computer in a different way, but they completely mesh and in the end the computer does pretty much anything you need it to. One minute your playing WoW, the next your checking how far your stocks have dropped and crying over the red negatives in you Excel account. For a phone, it's all about the apps and what's available. That said, the IPhone is probably more geared toward fun than business just becuase of how it's designed, but there are great business apps available. The Blackberry is probably more geared toward business, but it too has apps for fun stuff as well. Like I mentioned earlier though, like the HTC Touch Pro and Android systems, these capabilities are ever evolving and meshing.
