A frequent business traveller, your dad is often wheels up all around the globe. He may be attending a conference in Berlin while simultaneously sealing a business deal in Beijing. To stay on top of his hectic schedule, he’ll need a mobile powerhouse in his pocket to stay productive and efficient.
With a super-fast processor, large capacity battery, as well as in-built Office Mobile apps, the Microsoft Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL is perfect for the globetrotting Dad who wants the power of a PC without having to lug one around.
With the Lumia 950 or 950 XL, Dad will now be able to make his phone work like a PC simply by connecting the Lumia device to an external monitor such as his hotel or conference room TV, and plugging in any portable keyboard and mouse.
Continuum for Phones will ensure that Office apps such as Outlook or Word scale up to create a big screen-optimized work environment for maximum productivity.
As a Windows 10 device, the 950 range also works seamlessly with Windows 10 PCs, keeping Dad’s files, photos and reminders synced across devices, so he can keep in touch while keeping up with his portable performance needs.
Windows 10 Tip: Recent research found 54 percent of firms believe that non-executive staff have lost a device, and 49 percent have reported a phone or tablet stolen. A good way to protect Dad’s Windows 10 device while he travels is to enable Reset Protection, a free service for Lumia users that provides an extra layer of protection so that if his phone ends up in the wrong hands, it can’t be easily reset or reused.
