Motorola previously launched a smartphone designed for business users, called Lenovo ThinkPhone. Not only does the phone enable file sharing and transfer without an internet or Bluetooth connection, but it also makes it easy to stream apps to your computer and view notifications, calls, and more there. Today, Motorola announced some upcoming new features that will make the ThinkPhone an even more useful tool for employees who demand an anytime, anywhere Windows experience.
One of these features will allow the ThinkPhone to access Microsoft’s Windows 365 cloud PC service. “Customers can get a full Windows PC experience by using the ThinkPhone with any Lenovo monitor and Bluetooth accessory, allowing them to use their personalized apps, content and settings no matter where they are,” writes Motorola’s blog. “
In addition, Motorola has expanded the use of the ThinkPhone’s red button, which will soon be used to access the walkie-talkie application in Microsoft Teams, the blog writes: “By quickly programming the red button to invoke walkie-talkie mode, users will have instant push-to-talk (PTT) ) communication capabilities. This feature does not require any setup and perfectly integrates the red button with the Walkie-Talkie app in Microsoft Teams, allowing you to easily communicate instantly with a specific team or department using Teams channels.”
Both features will be available to ThinkPhone users in the coming weeks. The Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola (that’s the full name of the machine) has a 6.6-inch FHD+ display with a 144Hz refresh rate. Equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, 5000mAH battery, 8GB memory, 256GB storage space, and a 50-megapixel main camera, and has an IP68 dustproof and waterproof rating, is priced at $700.
