Business choice: S60 or S40?

Enterprise consumers often face the difficulty between choosing a non-smartphone or smartphone, as their qualities have been coming closer on the recent months. Business users aren’t necessarily “high-tech”. Our understood definition of such consumers are the ones needing ultimate email solutions and various connectivity methods.

We have to remember that not everyone recurs to modern technological communication methods, as there are some business consumers who won’t need to have push-email, or Wi-Fi, for example. This comes to my mind as I have noticed many of my friends, who are businessmen, possess a Nokia 6300. We try not to only focus on smartphones at PhoneReport, but it happens often, as they are the most attractive ones to us.

The Nokia 6300 is one of those phones that are satisfactory to business users, and is not considered a smartphone.

Nokia‘s enterprise line contains smartphones only, the ESeries line that is. Before it came up, the Communicators were widely respected as the jewels in Nokia’s business phone portfolio.

It might be intringing for some, the reason why a business person won’t need a smartphone. The answer is simple: phones such as the 6300 have email capabilities, can browse the internet, install Java applications, and most importantly, send and receive voice calls.

We have to take in account that executive devices need sleek and smart designs. The 6300 has a classic set of colours, comprised of black and grey, although other sets of colours are also available. Stainless steel is used in the construction, while the phone weighs 91g only. The size is also only 106.4 x 43.6 x 11.7 mm, less than the Nokia E51, for example, which measures 114.8 x 46 x 12 mm. The design can be seen as a pivotal criteria in the phone choice, if a phone does what you want, and look twice as good, it’s going to be your choice.

The S40 platform allows the installation of Java applications, such as Opera Mini, which provides an excellent perspective of desktop web, from a low-powered device. Basic functions such as email, push-to-talk, and calendar are also implemented on the 6300 itself. If there is no need whatsoever of multitasking or high-end applications, I don’t see why a business person would need a smartphone, the 6300 is more than enough for the ones amongst us that aren’t restricted to the phone, and have additional devices such as PC, and digital camera.

Bear in mind that if it is the 6300 you are considering, between other mobile phone deals, you don’t have to necessarily be connected to the business life. The 6300 comes with MP3 and video player, as well microSD support for memory expansion, and a 2 megapixel camera.

A simple conclusion is easy to derive: the 6300 can be a perfect phone for some of us, it is for some sensible reason that it is having a great success in the market.
