Doro has revealed two new easy-to-use mobile phones at Mobile World Congress this week.
The Doro PhoneEasy 622 is a clamshell feature phone. It’s Doro’s highest-spec feature phone, offering a home-screen weather application and the ability to record video via the 2 megapixel camera. In addition it supports the Doro Experience Manager, a cloud-based service that enables authorised family members or friends to edit contact information from a web portal. Photos taken on the phone can also be viewed and shared online.
As well as this, the Swedish company has announced the Doro Secure 681, which is designed for telecare services. The clamshell handset is the first mobile phone to feature an embedded ‘class one’ telecare radio receiver that’s compatible with Doro’s wearable wrist, neck and fall sensors. Alerts can be sent to monitoring services via the internet or SMS.
Jérôme Arnaud, Group CEO at Doro, said “At Doro, we understand that not all seniors are alike and this product provides a solution for those who need more support. Our Care division is addressing the needs of this audience in a truly modern way. This latest addition to the Doro Secure portfolio opens up the market for telecare providers to offer mobile solutions. No longer will people using telecare support services be confined to their homes. We have mobilised telecare and ensured that user security has not been compromised.”
The Doro Secure 681 will launch in the UK during Q2 2013 and will also be part of the Bosch Telecare selection.
