Nokia says Lumia phones are better for business than BlackBerry, tweets a chart showing why
A tweet sent by Nokia presents a chart showing why its Nokia Lumia phones are better for business than BlackBerry. Actually, the chart compares Nokia's Windows Phone flavored Lumia handsets with BlackBerry, Android, and iOS. For example, Nokia Lumia models come out of the box with Microsoft Office allowing you to edit Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote documents without requiring you to download an app like on the other platforms.

Other comparisons in Nokia's favor include having Microsoft Outlook built-in, with the same look and feel as on your PC. The poster also goes into Nokia's wireless charging capabilities which it says beats out the "very limited" availability of that feature on the other phones.

Windows Phone has been picking up some momentum lately, especially in the low-end of the market thanks to the popularity of the Nokia Lumia 520 and its twin, the Nokia Lumia 521. The latter is now the most popular Windows Phone model in the U.S. according to data from online ad network AdDuplex. Nokia has been pushing the low-light photographic capabilities of its high-end models, including the Nokia Lumia 1020 which offers a 41MP PureView camera.

BlackBerry was once as connected to businessmen as the pinstriped suit, but has seen its market share drop in a downward spiral. The company recently agreed to go private in a $4.7 billion buyout led by its largest stockholder, Fairfax Financial. There is speculation that the deal might not close and a number of tech giants like Samsung, LG, Cisco and others are believed to have some interest in all or part of the beleaguered company.

I think in Windows Phone area they are the best. Nokia had 95% in Europe from the begining for more than 10 years but the lack of entertainment made them to lose the market share to iOS and Android. Almost all smartphones were symbian. Developing the Symbian would have stopped the Android very much but now it;s too late.
They thought that bussiness was the most important thing and media not.

No it doesn't make sense wireless charging is a gimmick when you have to pick up the phone to speak its no longer charging not productive at all

Not is you have a headset. Wireless charging is pretty convinient for charging in office or car just set the phone down and charge. besides lots of people with phones, mostly people with phablets use headsets anyways.

Yes, especially for developing country that cut off electricity once in while the wireless charging is very special and when go to rural area where no electricity it must be extra special

Ads like these are stupid, since any of their competitors may as well point out the lack of VPN in WP8, making it one of the worst choices for businesses.

Don't rip on the competition, Nokia. Outshine them.

Alan F has shown that he doesn't the know that there are differences between Windows 8, Window Phone 8 and Windows RT. He just mashes them all together and think that all of the versions are capable of the same.

Almost all have an equal or better alternative to them (except maybe wireless charging) And wireless charging should be truly wireless and not be required to rest on a charging pad :x

this is a joke. saying 'microsoft phones have microsoft office integration out of the box' means nothing. the fact that they didn't have enough categories, so had to include wireless charging as one of their reasons says it all though.

oooo wow, begin editing the monopolist documents out of the box big deal, 3rd party office suites are BETTER than MS own, and have been for over a decade.

Outlook is the same on wp as on the desktop, that's bull sht

Offline navigation is available for anyone.

IRM? Uh, not sure what that catch phrase means anyhow, and ios kinda does that by default.

And wireless charging ooooo, no Android phone has that! No, not the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, whoopy do.

hmm... the only windows phones to have built-in wireless charging are the lumia 920 and the 928, the rest require different covers

I'm sure there are some great free office suites for Android out there

Relax fandroids. Its called marketing. Everyone does it. But no one did it worse than Sammy when they portrayed iPhone(potential future customers) users as shee-ps and clueless when they should just outshine the iPhones. No one complained with those ads.

I would have been fine with your comment, but because you specifically said 'fandroids' your comment is now worth nothing.

no vpn, torrent apps cannot save downloaded files to sdcard, no lock orientation, no files browser, can't change to specific notification sound like whatsapp and line messenger they all have same notification sound. slow notification and the apps drawer is a mess.
battery drain very fast when streaming on podcasts (audio only) and songs.
no tv-out (mhl/hdmi) for presentation, no usb otg, need an apps just to kill music player(this is grazy) no way to close apps from task manager, browsing 17 sites from ie mean 17 taps on the back button.
i'm using lumia 520, some part i love it, other part i feel this OS is a beta testing OS.
i'm not hating WP8 just hoping microsoft improving the user experience and consistency to catch up with apple.
