Mobile technology is changing the way that educational organisations operate. By enabling more mobile working and collaboration, organisations can work more efficiently and make more use of their IT spend. For example, teachers and lecturers can keep in touch and stay connected through Microsoft Outlook and Lync, wherever they are.
If you’re helping people to work more flexibly, you also need to consider information security. Mobile devices need to be kept encrypted, particularly when sensitive information is stored on them. This makes passwords and security policies essential.
On the Microsoft stand at BETT, we’ll have a range of cutting-edge Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone devices, and some of our education specialists to talk you through the main features. Because Lumia uses Windows Phone, they integrate tightly with your existing IT estate, including Exchange email and Outlook. They also have built-in Excel, PowerPoint and Word, optimised for mobile, so that documents and presentations can be viewed, edited and shared wherever you are – be it on the sofa at home, or in the classroom.
We’ll have our Lumia business devices on hand for you to try: the 520, 625, 925, 1020, 1520 and our new 2520 tablet. You will be able to see exactly what Lumia with Windows Phone can do for you – and they are updated with the latest Lumia Black software update (rolling out this month). With Lumia Beamer, sharing what’s on your phone with colleagues and students has never been easier. You can now beam documents, photos, presentations (anything you like really) to other enabled devices or most internet-enabled PCs across the world with web access. Check out Nokia Beamer for yourself or find out more about Lumia Black here.
Of course, nobody wants a life of all work and no play. Nokia Lumia with Windows Phones offers many other features, including elegant designs, the best camera available on a smartphone, exclusive photo editing tools and much more.
If you like what you see on the stand (or like what you’ve read here but can’t make it to BETT), you can find out about Nokia Lumia by signing up to a 30-day free trial here.

We look forward to chatting with you at the event.
