The recently announced Lumia 830 has its looks going for it, appearing to be the result of a cross between the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 930, which are gorgeous devices in their own right. With the quad-core CPU, a 10-megaixel PureView camera, and wireless charging built-in, it’s no slouch in terms of performance either.
Serving as Microsoft’s so called “affordable flagship”, the Lumia 830 is also being touted as a device that is perfectly capable for business use too. That’s partially thanks to the business-centric features introduced with Windows Phone 8.1 such as Mobile Device Management and Enhanced App Management among others, in addition to Lumia Denim features such as Live Folders to better organize apps.
New accessories can also make a significant difference in productivity when used in conjunction with the Lumia 830 such as the new Screen-Sharing for Lumia HD-10 accessory that – as its name suggests – allows users to share what’s on their phones’ screen on any HDMI-enabled display or projector. Always useful during presentations, and which can particularly impress a less tech-aware audience.
Lumia’s have been growing in popularity in the enterprise. We saw Delta purchase about 20,000 Lumia 1520’s for their flight attendants, Coca Cola do the same with other Windows Phone 8 devices for their sales associates, and Foxtons who deployed about 900 devices to its employees to name a few. So it’s no real surprise to see Microsoft continue to push Windows Phone devices in the enterprise.
