GreatCall announces new promising Samsung Jitterbug Plus phone
For those over in the good old US of A of a more mature age that don’t particularly want a touch screen smartphone, and prefer an easy to use handset with buttons along with a clamshell form factor, capturing pictures and sharing at the touch of a button rather than touching the screen, GreatCall has now announced their new Samsung Jitterbug Plus handset.
The Jitterbug Plus mobile phone offers the user a sleek simple design and a smart new feature set that includes a lightweight comfortable handset, improved speaker, an easy to use camera, one touch photo sharing, and a stronger battery life that delivers up to 25-days standby time.
The Jitterbug Plus made by Samsung, features the simplest menu navigation by way of Yes and No buttons, large legible numbers, a backlit physical keypad, and improved speaker that ensures conversations are clear and loud.
Designed for today’s mature Americans that look for additional features the Jitterbug Plus mobile phone fulfils that need to meet their lifestyle and not intimidating and is a big button handset for seniors.
The CEO of GreatCall, David Inns says, “For our customers, simple is smart, and we’re helping them learn new ways to stay connected and safe by adding easy-to-use features that they’ll actually enjoy using. A few years ago it was simplified text messaging, now it’s one-touch photo sharing on Facebook.”
Apparently 1-in-3 online seniors use social networking such as Facebook and LinkedIn, and with the Jitterbug Plus cell phone you can share your pictures to your social networking site at the simple touch of a button, and the Jitterbug Plus is also compatible with GreatCall’s innovative health and medical applications such as 5Star Urgent Response.
The Jitterbug Plus is available in two coloured, red or silver, and commands a retail price tag of $119, but there is a limited introductory price of 99-bucks, and the mobile phone can be purchased via Best Buy, Radio Shack, Sears, ShopKo, Fry’s Electronics or by hitting up www.greatcall.com.
