A mobile phone’s just for making calls, right? Wrong. Rapid technological progression over the last 10 years has made a phone so much more than a method of keeping in touch. With smartphones sweeping the market, their uses have become broader and more innovative, making them the ultimate must-have device at home or away.
A smartphone is a mobile phone with more advanced computing capability and connectivity than a regular mobile phone. In the last few years, smartphones have almost caught up with personal computers in terms of what they can do. You can browse the internet, check your e-mail, map out routes, find local places of interest, create documents, play games and much more, all in the palm of your hand. We stock a number of phones that are designed to handle the most basic of functions, to the very advanced.
The innovative ASUS PadFone 2 takes a different approach to smartphones and computing on the go in general. This 4.7” phone comes with a 10.1” tablet docking station, so you can switch from small screen to big in a second and continue your work without having to strain your eyes to look at the smaller screen. With the lines between smartphone, tablet and computer continually blurring, the PadFone 2 is a great leap on the track to unifying your mobile computing life.
Samsung’s Galaxy Y Pro is perfect if you want a smartphone but prefer to have a physical keyboard. This device is aimed at business users, with the QWERTY keyboard perfect for typing long e-mails, while the touch screen can still be used for quick navigation. You can also store sensitive information without worrying about theft or data loss, thanks to Samsung’s pCloud Service which will encrypt sensitive data, trace the phone in the event of loss or theft and remotely and private data from the device.
