Designed with senior citizens in mind, the Doro 6050 from leader of telecom for senior, Doro, is a feature phone that carries with it quite some style. It is a clam shell mobile phone (AKA flip phone) that’s easy on the hand (thanks in part to the soft touch coating) and boasts several features that will make using the phone a less painful thing to do by some old folks.
Carefully thought out senior citizen features include a large caller ID display on the outside, a large 2.8-inch 320 x 240 resolution color display on the inside, hearing aide compatible, visual ring indicator, assistant button, loud and clear sound, speakerphone, adjustable display font size, In Case of Emergency (ICE) function, and large, backlit talking keys with wide space between them for easy makes dialing or texting.
Other notables include email client, a 3MP interpolated camera, built-in flashlight, FM radio, one-touch memories, phone book function, photo phone book, calculator, wake up alarm, games, daily reminder, and a 800 mAh lithium-ion which is good for up to 6 hours of talkative and up to 420 hours of standby time. In addition, it has GPRS, VCard support, works on GSM 900/1800/1900 bands, uses micro SIM, Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, and support microSD card.
The device sure win in the design department, but however, it don’t seems to be getting good reviews. On Doro UK website, it has 10 reviews and scored just 3.4 stars. I wonder what might be the issue? Anyways, if you are keen, you can grab one off Doro UK for 90 English money (or about US$122). It appears not to be available to the U.S.
