Three Reasons you Should Take out Mobile Insurance for Your New Smartphone

Whether you use it for work, private use, entertainment, or an all-round digital aid, your smartphone is a valuable asset and needs to be protected.

A significant number reported damage by simply accidentally dropping their phone down a toilet. Repairs to handsets are expensive, and complete replacement can be even more so. Insurance can offset these costs, and in some instances provide a completely new replacement handset at no extra cost, providing the right type of policy has been chosen. read more

Nokia’s E5 – still supporting businesses

Smartphones have made major progress in recent years, but for some businesses that simply raises more and more concerns about security.

With an ever-increasing array of connectivity options, including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, mobile phones are becoming more at-risk of external attacks, and for the biggest businesses that means it’s harder to protect data.
