An investigation was done into the most suitable cell phone for the organisation. Three phones were in the final selection: the HTC HD7 Windows Phone, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and the Motorola Cliq2 with Motoblur. All three phones were compared on specification, capabilities and appropriateness for the use of the company. Of these, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G was found to be the most suitable for the organisation.
The following three phones have been identified as compatible for the company: the HTC HD7 Windows Phone, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and the Motorola Cliq2 with Motoblur. Of these, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G is best suited to the company’s requirements.
All three phones have high resolution screens. The Samsung also has an high definition television built in (Samsung), though this may act as a distraction for the individual using it. Furthermore, all three have a 1GHz processer, making them speed efficient.
The Samsung and the Motorola can both act as an hotspot for up to five wifi products (Motorola). This is a useful feature for sales executives as when they are out of the office they can still easily access the internet. The Windows phone does not have this aspect (Microsoft).
The Windows phone and the Samsung both have the added advantage of GPS navigation system, which the Motorola does not. This would be a useful feature for sales executives who are driving to meeting new clients regularly.
While all three phones allow both work and personal emails to come through, and to synchronise with the office, only the Motorola allows separate work and personal profiles to be set up. Being able to use the phone outside of work hours as a personal phone could be an attractive incentive for staff members.
The Windows phone allows word and excel documents to be edited. It is also possible to synchronise both personal and work emails to Microsoft outlook via the Windows phone.
Despite the many extra features of the Windows phone and the multi-profile system of the Motorola, the Samsung encompasses all of the company’s main priorities. It has synchronising emails, GPS navigation and works as an internet hotspot. Therefore, this phone is the most suitable as the new company phone.
