As John Starkweather pointed out last week, the improvements made in wireless networks and devices have made smartphones an integral part of our day. For instance, you might leave your laptop at home for a weekend away, but how often do you, or anyone you know, take off without your phone? Such demand has placed smartphones like the HTC Sensation and Evo among the best-selling mobile devices. Of course, we’re already seeing the HTC One joining the ranks of top-selling phones around the world. Personally, beyond all its design appeal, I’ve found my HTC One S increasingly indispensable throughout my day — not just for playing “Angry Birds Space” or checking email during meetings.
The same HTC Sense user experience that provides access to music, streaming media and social networks has also proven beneficial for getting work done and powering customized business apps. The smartphone’s appeal for personal and professional use has led to a phenomenon within the office known as “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD, for short).
Having such instant access to personal and work-related content is a true time-saver for individuals, but occasional security and compatibility issues make it a bit of a mixed bag for IT administrators. That’s where HTCpro comes in.
While HTC focuses on creating the best mobile experiences, HTCpro helps business and IT leaders understand the business potential of these devices that are commonly mis-perceived as insecure or “rogue.” We can provide guidelines for securely leveraging powerful smartphones, such as the One X, in the workplace, as well as access to business apps from HTC solution partners.
If you’ve yet to join the growing ranks of smartphone owners, we’ll offer guidance on a range of business-ready HTC devices that will meet your personal and professional needs. So whether you’re an IT administrator or business exec, mobile power user or still learning the basics, HTCPro is here to help you get more out of your smartphone investment and be more productive at work.
The HTCpro team will do its best to blog about topics that keep you up to speed on the latest trends, developments and mobile technologies—and don’t hesitate to tell us if there’s something specific you’d like to hear about. Occasionally, we’ll feature guest posts from some of our industry solution partners about the work they’re doing to help you be more productive on your HTC device.
So whether you use your phone solely for personal use, for work or a mix of both, check out the redesigned HTCpro website, where you’ll find a variety of business use cases, details about the mobile solutions that HTCpro is creating in conjunction with our partners, and access to HTC development resources for creating your own custom apps.
