The latest device to be unveiled by Doro is probably their most interesting ever, as it combines Android’s functionality with an easy to use interface and pretty decent hardware. The PhoneEasy 740 is still in the last stages of pre-production, but the manufacturers are hoping to iron out all the little kinks in time for a US release before the end of the summer.
Sporting a 320-by-480 3.2-inch touchscreen, the PhoneEasy 740 has a slide-out keyboard and features 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of on-board storage, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 3G and WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, and a microSD memory card slot. That’s not too shabby for a device that is set to be made available at a very affordable price, and the software is itself surprisingly functional.
The app store (Doro Selection) only features 15 apps right now.
The internet-enabled handset extends support to the 3G network speed to ensure swift web browsing. It is accompanied by a charging cradle. Needless to say, the Android phone lets users access the Google Play store to download applications. The GPS certified gadget is deployed with Doro Experience, that’s a cloud based software for remotely managing the device with the assistance of a Windows PC. Relatives of the user can load or delete applications and control its features from anywhere on the globe.
It will be made available in summer this year
