Doro launches two of world’s easiest mobile telephones

November 09, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
More than four out of ten elderly people experience handling and dexterity problems and almost one in ten suffer from poor memory, creating difficulties in many every day activities. Still, most new mobile telephones are tiny, with small buttons and packed with complex features. Identifying the need for simplicity, Swedish consumer electronics company Doro has launched the new Doro HandlePlus 324gsm and the Doro HandleEasy 326gsm.

Doro HandlePlus 324gsm: Equipped with only seven buttons, the Doro HandlePlus 324gsm is perfect for consumers with limited hand functionality or merely looking for a simpler alternative to some of the more hi-tech mobile phones on the market. The handset has just seven buttons and allows the user to pre-programme five numbers in a user-friendly ergonomic design. This enables consumers to have quick, easy and direct access to their social and support network at the push of just one button. Programming of the Doro HandlePlus 324gsm can be done at the point of sale or by using another mobile telephone. The phone comes unlocked, making it possible to use with any gsm service provider.

Doro HandleEasy 326gsm: As well as four pre-programmable buttons, the Doro HandleEasy 326gsm includes additional features, such as a number pad for dialling non-programmed phone numbers, a high-contrast LCD display, a vibrator ring tone and speaker phone capabilities. Large rubberised buttons also make the phone much more user-friendly.

Complementing both products are three discreet, comfortable ear hooks for hands free calling and improved sound clarity when using DECT phones and mobile phones with hearing aids. The HearPlus eh346m assists the HandleEasy 326gsm, the HearPlus eh344m accompanies the HandlePlus 324gsm and the HearPlus eh340m model provides assistance with DECT handsets and most Sony Ericsson, Nokia and Samsung GSM mobile phones using an accessory (hsa1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Available at an RRP of £19.99, the HearPlus range can be purchased at BioAcoustics.

The HandlePlus 324gsm is available from BioAcoustics ( for RRP £79.99. The HandleEasy 326gsm is also available now at BioAcoustics and from January at Argos ( for RRP £99.99.

The HandlePlus 324gsm, HandleEasy 326gsm and the HearPlus eh346m all complement the existing Doro Care Electronics range which includes senior-focused telephones, remote controls and other home consumer products.
