Mobile targets the 50+ generation RRS feed

  • Question

  • A mobile phone with a built-in emergency button has been produced for elderly and older people.

    The Life phone is aimed at those aged 50-plus who do not want a handset crammed with every possible feature.

    Instead of a camera or music player it has a loud speaker tuned for those who are either partially sighted or use a hearing aid, a big screen and buttons.

    On show at the Cebit hi-tech fair, the phone will go on sale around the world in May.

    Created by Austrian firm Emporia the phone has been specifically developed for the older generation who find existing handsets too fiddly and complicated to use.
