Mall of America Switches From BlackBerry to Nokia Lumia 920

Mall of America Switches From BlackBerry to Nokia Lumia 920 
ESPOO, FINLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 --  Mall of America, the
United States' largest retail and entertainment complex, is switching
from BlackBerry to the Nokia Lumia 920 because of the tight
integration with Microsoft services and built-in Microsoft
Office
suite, offering Mall of America management team members greater
productivity and flexibility in a very dynamic workplace. 
The Nokia Lumia 920 is built on the Microsoft Windows Phone 8
platform, which
allows out-of-the-box access to Microsoft apps and
services, including Outlook,
Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and
SkyDrive, all brought to life on the smartphone's large PureMotion
HD+ super sensitive touch screen. These apps integrate with the
mall's existing Microsoft services, enabling Mall of
America
management team members to review and edit Outlook emails and
Microsoft Office
documents on their smartphones, wherever they happen
to be. 
"Switching to the Nokia Lumia 920 has increased productivity for key
team members. The combination of a great smartphone with built-in
Microsoft Office
suite enables our team to work collaboratively, and
SkyDrive ensures we can back
up and access our work, wherever we are
and whenever we want," says Janette Smrcka, I.T. Director at Mall of
America. 
"With more than 400 events every year, from music acts to celebrity
book signings, the ability to capture, edit and share images from the
Nokia Lumia
920's PureView camera enables team members to provide
instant high-quality imagery and real time updates to social media
fans and our business customers.
When you combine this with all of
the Windows Phone 8 platform's business capabilities, at a price we
can afford, we've got a device we're really proud to use," concludes
Janette. 
The Nokia Lumia 920's Live Tiles offer intelligent, interactive apps,
showing
the latest emails, news, documents and people updates as they
happen, so that at one touch of a tile, management team members can
reach key people, stay organized and collaborate with colleagues. The
People Hub in Windows Phone 8
further helps organize teams, allowing
staff to set-up groups, work together
innovatively, and stay in touch
with co-workers across text, Facebook, Twitter,
instant messaging and
email. 
"Mall of America is a great example of how all the business features
of the Nokia Lumia 920, combined with its social capabilities, can
make a great work
device," said Stephanie Mosticchio, enterprise
sales manager for North America
at Nokia. "The Windows Phone 8
platform has meant the company's employees have
been able to
transition quickly, due to its built-in and familiar Microsoft
Outlook and Office Mobile applications. From the intuitive
integration with Microsoft services, to Live Tiles and People Hub
making it easy to stay close to what matters, all wrapped in the
beautiful polycarbonate body of the Nokia Lumia
920, it offers
everything a mobile workforce could ask for." 
Nokia for Business 
With the Nokia Lumia range, Nokia offers business users the ability
to work on
their mobile as they would on their PC. With the Windows
Phone 8 platform, Microsoft Office and Outlook are built in allowing
employees to create and edit
PowerPoint, Excel and Word documents
wherever they are whilst seamlessly syncing
their files and email.
Combined with a design that stands out, business level
security as
standard, and a range of Qi standard wireless charging solutions,
the
Nokia Lumia is the most innovative smartphone for businesses.
