handy, the innovative flagship product from Tink Labs Limited, is a new benchmark for travel technology. When implemented as an in-room solution through hotel partners, handy combines the functionality of a personal smartphone and hotel in-room phone services into one fully integrated device. Each handy smartphone is customized for the hotel property and provides guests with unlimited internet, local and international calls, as well as an interactive city guide and one-click access to the hotel's concierge and amenities.

The development of handy is the first step towards achieving Tink Labs' goal of addressing the needs of the global traveller. handy, a proven service in Hong Kong and Singapore has had unanimously positive reviews from both hotel partners and guests. It is now available also in London, Paris, Istanbul, Bangkok, Macau, and Dubai, and is currently undergoing global expansion to the world's top travel destinations. 

“handy started as a bold idea to solve a travel problem but is now completely reshaping the tourism landscape,” says Terence Kwok, Founder and CEO of Tink Labs. "The handy smartphone, with its free mobile connectivity and indispensable city guide, is now the must have amenity for all international travellers.” "handy's partnership with The Westbridge Hotel marks a tremendous leap forward in establishing our global presence and is testament to the importance of complete mobile connectivity in today's tourism,” says Terence Kwok, Founder and CEO of Tink Labs. Their services will be an extremely valuable asset for expanding the hospitality footprint of The Westbridge Hotel. 

Millions of people across the globe are used to being connected to the world at large 24-hours-a-day via their mobile devices, but when they travel to a foreign country, there’s no guarantee their service provider will operate overseas, thus denying them online access or even the ability to make a phone call. In an era when using a smartphone for just about everything is second nature, not being able to do so can be a major inconvenience. Travellers are invariably lost without them – literally. 

Now, however, for the duration of their stay in the UK capital, guests of The Westbridge Hotel will be able to use the handy entirely free of charge, enabling them to make local and international calls to selected countries and providing them with unlimited 3G data. In addition to ensuring guests can access online maps to help them navigate through the city and find all its essential sights, each handy device also comes complete with preloaded tips on where to eat and drink. To protect guests’ privacy, all personal information and browsing history will be erased from handy device when they check out of the hotel.
