Sometimes it’s hard to remember there are more choices in smartphone operating systems than just iOS (which is installed on Apple’s iPhone) and Android. But if you’re looking for a more PC-like interface, you might want to check out a Windows phone. Up until recently, your best bet was Nokia’s Lumia line. But with the release of Windows Phone 8, that has changed. So if you’re not too keen on banking on a company, which financially speaking, is the Finnish equivalent of RIM, you might want to check out what HTC has to offer.

When many people are abandoning home phone lines for cellphones altogether, one company is trying to stem the tide by providing what they call “the smartphone for your home.”
Think about your home. All the time, effort and money you have put into making it “your” space. How it incorporates your personality and keeps your comfort in mind. Now, imagine you could replicate that at the office. You can, with the flexibility and dependability of the Avaya IP Office System from Telus.
This digital communications management system for small businesses, used in house at the GetConnected office, is an excellent example of how seamlessly you can conduct business from home, on the road and in the office.
The Avaya phone system manages your phones and links up to three phones at one time. Three distinct phone lines will ring when one centralized number is called, allowing you the flexibility as to where you want to take the call. An example is having your phone ring at home, work and on your mobile.
Your computer is also incorporated into the platform via the Avaya one-X portal. This application does not require any software downloads, making it very user friendly for staff. Also, it integrates communication, allowing for teleconference options, the ability to easily browse call history and contacts and accessing visual voicemails. When beginning a call on your desktop, it is easy to transfer that call to your handset for increased privacy and mobility. The one-X portal also allows users to configure the software from home.
And, when feeling guilty about working in the comfort of your own home, rest assured that your productivity is increased by not spending time forwarding calls or by missing important calls. Also, keep in mind the environment benefits of not driving to work every day!
