Can you run a business using just a mobile phone?

Next week I'll be seeing how powerful the modern smartphone has become by trying to run my entire business purely from my iPhone.

With the huge leaps in technology and software over the last couple of years then modern smartphones have become so much more than just a mobile phone. Most people now use their smartphone as a camera, for checking their email, and internet browsing as a minimum.

I'm going to be doing absolutely everything to run my business from mine next week and my laptop will be banned from use! This means that as well as the usual things I use it for I'll also be using it for diary management, satellite navigation for the car, project management, running our development team, invoicing, editing/printing documents, taking photo's, recording a video diary, and of course blogging and Tweeting may way through the week.

Just to make things even more challenging for me I'll also be out of the office for the first half of the week. I'll be heading from Yorkshire to meetings in Wales, Devon, the South coast, Essex, and then back up North.

If you'd like to see how I get on then I'll regularly be using the Twitter hastag #MobileBiz from my @richardjeaton Twitter account and will be blogging from here on the Appware blog :)

Wish me luck!
