With Nokia walking on a thinning rope as their cash reserves get depleted by each passing day, any good news will be like a much needed breath of fresh air for the management which is running helter-skelter to keep the company afloat.
Well, here is some good news from Australia, as Bridgestone has announced that they would be providing their employees with Nokia’s Lumia 800. The decision as stated by Bridgestone is based on the fact that Windows Phone supports MS Office and Outlook. With their sales force needing easy email access and managers needing better integration with business apps, Windows Phone became the natural choice for Bridgestone.
Scott Baxter, IT Manager, Bridgestone also stated that besides the need for emailing and business apps, there was a need for the employees to be able to connect socially as well, which the Windows Phone platform is known for with its native integration of Twitter and Facebook.
He also stated that using Nokia Lumia Windows Phone will also help his employees to get rid of additional devices like GPS device, as Nokia Map and Drive are one of the best SatNav solutions currently available in the market.
