The Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola, a smartphone designed for business customers, is getting new productivity tools. Together, Motorola and Microsoft are announcing two new features for ThinkPhone users so they can work from anywhere: fully integrated support for Windows 365 cloud capabilities and Push To Talk integration with the Walkie Talkie feature on Microsoft Teams.
Windows 365 combines the power and security of the Microsoft cloud with the versatility of the PC. By integrating this capability with the ThinkPhone, Motorola is now bringing a full-fledged cloud PC right to the pocket so users can work from anywhere. ThinkPhone users can take advantage of the Windows 365 integration and stream the Windows experience directly from their ThinkPhone to a larger display by simply connecting it with a USB-C cable, and a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
Customers can access the power of ThinkPhone by combining it with any Lenovo monitor, including the ThinkVision P27h-30 monitor featuring a 27-inch QHD display, and Bluetooth accessories such as the Lenovo Professional Wireless Rechargeable Combo Keyboard and Mouse, and Lenovo Go Wireless ANC Headset, for a complete Windows PC experience with all their personalised apps, content, and settings, wherever they are.
This capability not only allows users the flexibility to be truly mobile and fully productive, but also allows IT departments to re-think the traditional work set-up and reduce overall costs.
While immersed at work, convenience is key, and ThinkPhone’s iconic Red Key button works to bring convenience to life. With two taps, users can experience seamless phone and PC Integration powered by Think 2 Think connectivity. Now, the convenience of ThinkPhone’s Red Key is being expanded with the integration of the Walkie Talkie app in Teams. By quickly programming the Red Key to invoke Walkie Talkie mode, users will have instant push-to-talk (PTT) communication capabilities. Working out of the box, this feature perfectly integrates the Red Key with the Walkie Talkie app in Microsoft Teams, making it easy to instantly communicate with specific teams or departments at once using Teams Channels.
With ThinkPhone, customers have a complete suite of security and support features that deliver advanced protection and full manageability backed by ThinkShield, Lenovo’s superior security platform with underlying fundamental security policies, features, specialised hardware, software and processes that help ensure the security of the device.
ThinkPhone’s superiority goes beyond security and extends to its premium and resistant design. Crafted from Aramid fibre, which is stronger and lighter than steel, and combined with an aluminium frame and Gorilla Glass Victus, it’s tough enough to achieve IP68¹ underwater protection rating and meet MIL-STD-810H tests for durability.
ThinkPhone also comes with premium specs, such as the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform, large 6.6” FHD+ display, a 5,000 mAh battery, and 68W TurboPower charger that can charge both the ThinkPhone and Lenovo laptops. An advanced 50MP Ultra Pixel camera completes this powerful device, delivering premium image quality on every video call no matter the lighting conditions.
The Windows 365 support via Moto Connect and the Walkie Talkie feature in Microsoft Teams will be available for the Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola in the coming weeks. The Walkie Talkie app is already included in the Teams frontline license.
