With their large keys, piercing ringtones and easy to navigate menu systems, the Doro PhoneEasy 409s and Vodafone Emporia RL1 are ideal handsets for the "silver generation" or for that matter, those that want a no-nonsense easy to use phone. Tesco is to become the latest retailer to stock the two handsets, both of which should be available for less than £60 (price correct at time of posting).
The Doro PhoneEasy 409s is a clamshell phone that along with the big buttons and high ringer volume also has an alert button that enables you to preset an emergency SMS that will be sent out to designated friends and family. The Vodafone Emporia RL1 takes a candybar form and has added features such as an alarm clock, birthday reminder, built-in torch and the ability to alter the size of text from big to massive.
The Doro PhoneEasy 409s and Vodafone Emporia RL1 are both available on Tesco Mobile (the Doro PhoneEasy 409s is also available on the Virgin network) from any Tesco Phone Shop or www.tescophoneshop.com.
