I mentioned a couple weeks ago about getting a new phone for my appraisal business. Well, during some time off last week I bought a myTouch 4G by T-Mobile. This is definitely an upgrade from my G1.
The features I like most so far about the myTouch4G include: the internet speed is so much faster than my previous phone, it plays flash videos, tethering, two camera lenses, there is a flash on the camera, it’s very easy to sync with Google apps, the flashlight app is far more than just a lit-up screen, it has a decent camera and a great video camera, no dropped calls yet, and there are seven screens. It doesn’t have a pull-out keyboard, which I thought would be a deal-killer for me, but I’ve adjusted quite easily to the on-screen touch keyboard.
Here is a video overview of the myTouch 4G below (or an external link).
On the job I anticipate using the following apps and features the most: Square (to accept credit card payments by phone), flashlight, video, camera, email and internet of course, social networking to connect with clients, Google Voice, Google Calendar, and Google Maps. The phone does have a video chat feature, but I don’t know that I’ll really use that during the business day.
Having the right technology for business these days is very important to me so I can stay in touch with clients and be a quick resource as needed. What tech gadgets make your business run smoothly?
