Not to be confused with a certain explorer named Dora, Doro of Sweden has created a cell phone for older people who are overwhelmed by the features found on many of today’s handsets. This mobile phone is simple and easy-to-use, but it also comes with some more advanced functions should you need those too.
The new Doro PhoneEasy 410gsm was created largely for the senior market, because a recent market survey indicates that 29% of seniors are intimidated by cell phones.
With the Doro PhoneEasy 410gsm, users gain access to a large color display, illuminated keypad, amplified sound, text message capabilities, Bluetooth, FM radio, and a one-touch emergency button that calls and texts a designated number.
The senior-minded flip phone is available in your choice of burgundy, mother of pearl, or matte black. The Doro PhoneEasy 410gsm will go on sale May 1 through Consumer Cellular, the official wireless carrier of AARP. Yeah, it’s no iPhone but sometimes some of us just need to step back from all the bells and whistles.
