Nokia has revealed that the largest retail and entertainment complex in the US, Mall of America is switching from BlackBerry to its Lumia 920 Windows Phone. The main reasons behind the company's move are tighter integration with Microsoft services and the Microsoft Office Hub, offering more functionality and flexibility for the management team at Mall of America.
It's no surprise that a company relying on Microsoft services has decided to move over to Windows Phone 8, the latest version of Microsoft's mobile platform. Janette Smrcka, I.T. Director at Mall of America, had the following to comment on the switch:
"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."
