Finnish lift and escalator company KONE has a BYOD (bring your own device) scheme in place that has seen more than 70 percent of employees use Nokia Lumia Windows Phones, according to reports in Australia. KONE provides employees with the choice on private phones or to choose a smartphone from a specified set of manufacturers, including Nokia, Samsung, HTC and Apple.
Interestingly enough, not all employees have access to the Lumia 920 - that's restricted for director-level staff only. Operational employees can pick up the Lumia 610, Lumia 800 or Lumia 710, which aren't necessarily bad options. Nokia has entered into partnerships in the past to offer Windows Phones (Lumia 900) to employees at AT&T. Even Yahoo! looked at the Lumia 920 for its company.
