Caixabank to employ 30,000 Nokia Lumia handsets
Spain's CaixaBank has decided on Nokia as its main smartphone supplier. The bank will purchase a whopping 30,000 Nokia Lumia 925 handsets to give to employees. Nokia and Microsoft will give CaixaBank creative and technical support. The Lumia 925 was decided on after various testing was carried out, and the bank will have the option to upgrade to a new model in the future.

As part of the deal, employees of the bank, their families and friends, will be given the opportunity to purchase Nokia products via a special program. In a press release, Nokia notes that the Windows Phone OS offers anti-malware protection, encryption of information, use of NFC to interact with banking operations, and integration to regular office needs with the use of Microsoft Office.

The Nokia Lumia 925 is equipped with a 4.5 inch AMOLED screen featuring a 768 x 1280 resolution. This works out to a pixel density of 334ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. An 8.7MP camera is on back, with aperture of f/2.0 and OIS. A 1.2MP camera adorns the front of the handset. A 2000mAh battery keeps the lights on.

"Mobile devices are a highly valuable asset in the relationship with customers and the implementation of Nokia Lumia as the preferred device family for CaixaBank employees is a strategic project focused on promoting mobility, adding value both for CaixaBank employees and customers."-Nokia

Thanks for the tip!

Microsoft is giving deals to business customers in order to generate sales and the needed revenue.

The only reason I can think of for getting Windows Phone, over others, is either they are getting some huge incentive form the Microsoft marketing team, or they don't want their employees from getting glued to their phone, which can increase productivity.

Exactly. WP phones can't hold a persons attention that long but they are fast considering....And anyways BB and WP are more business oriented in my opinion. Thats what I use my BB Z10 and Lumia 1520 for, to handle emails and edit documents

But they do not know that Blackberry is way more secure than all other platforms. iOS is the least secure

While that is true BlackBerry still charges waaay too much to it's enterprise customers, plus even though it can run android apps that's opening developer options, which is a security breach, which defeats the security portion, whereas a Windows phone has a lot more native apps than BlackBerry, nonetheless offline navigation, better battery life (than Z10, not Z30) along with probably simply being cheaper.

The phone is only as secure as their IT department makes it. It's a stupid argument you guys are having. They can lock the phone and only have them use proprietary apps.

PS Benoulli - your argument is especially invalid due to thinking your clever using an overused and lame "lagdroid" in your comments.

I'd say that Blackberry is most secure. Android is least secure, but only if user is stupid (if using basic common sense won't be any trouble, and modern day Android versions are more than enough safe). And EVERY platform can be spyed and actually every platform is spied by NSA.

Google always gave Android out for free, and they took over the global markets...doesn't sound very desperate to me at all. Ms on the other hand started out by charging like $75 per handset or some crazy amount like that, and now with fewer OEM's wanting to use their platform the price has been steadily reduced to where it is being offered for free to the Indian carriers now? Wanna talk desperate some more?
