All Torque Transmissions took delivery of new mobile phones this week, having persevered with our existing ones for long enough. The new technology is quite impressive, with things like ‘the cloud’, ‘facetime’ and ‘retina display’ no longer mere existential undertakings, but now actually with us. I say most people were impressed… enter Sales Engineer Ernie Baker.
A renowned stalwart of using only proven technology, Mr Baker was taken aback at the new phone’s interface (and lack of actual buttons on the front), whilst the size of the handset was also surely going to cause problems. All Torque management was going to have to come up with a quick answer if it was going to keep its top salesman happy.
Quick thinking saw the introduction of the Maxwell Smart Suitcase Phone – Ernie Baker Edition. Fashioned from the original handsets of telephones from Australia’s Post Master General circa 1971, the special limited-edition model features an extremely loud earpiece, with the microphone turned down to its lowest setting by the factory.
Seriously, though, our new mobiles run Windows 8 and are a real powerhouse of technology. They enable our Sales Engineers to do the job both in the office and on the road.
