Mitel Adds 4G LTE Android Smartphones to its Mobile Service

Provider of cloud and on-premises unified communications and collaboration (UCC) solutions, Mitel, today expanded its portfolio of mobile devices with a series of new 4G LTE Android devices as part of its Mitel Mobile offering for small and medium-sized businesses (SMB).

The new devices include the insanely popular Samsung Galaxy SIII, Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE and HTC EVO 4G LTE.

These three devices are available immediately in the U.S. alongside Mitel's Unlimited Plus mobile phone plans, which include voice, text and data without throttling or any other usage restrictions. Previously, Mitel Mobile only featured two 4G capable phones – the Samsung Galaxy SII Epic 4G Touch and the HTC Detail – both of which actually use 4G WIMAX.

Other devices include a selection of 3G-capable Android and BlackBerry smartphones as well as the ZTE Optik and BlackBerry PlayBook tablets.

"Mitel is providing U.S. organizations the best Android devices on the market today, and combining that with highly competitive pricing and truly unlimited data usage," said Jon Brinton, president of Mitel NetSolutions. "Our customers are able to tap into advanced options that merge employee devices with Mitel's voice and unified communications solutions, providing consistent and high quality broadband access for employees wherever they are located."

The Mitel Mobile offer allows customers to take advantage of mobility integration with their office communications solution when bundled with Mitel NetSolutions SIP trunking. This allows an organization to easily share minutes and integrate employee smartphones with their desktop phones all with a single number identity and unified voicemail.

Mitel's Unlimited Plans feature truly unlimited talk, text and data plus premium features such as mobile hotspot for as little as $75 per month.

Recently, Mitel signed an agreement with France-based service provider OpenIP, allowing the former’s cloud-based UCC platform to be integrated into the latter's cloud-based offering for system integrators and resellers in France.

As a result, OpenIP will introduce a suite of new monthly subscription business communication services based on Mitel's cloud telephony offering.
