Jitterbug Touch 2 is an ideal entry-level smartphone for people looking to move from a basic feature phone.
Thursday, August 29, 2013: Normally elderly people do not take well to the high-end phones we see entering the market so often. They seek simplicity and comfort. After launching its first simplified smartphone, now GreatCall has announced the launch of Jitterbug Touch 2 phone.
Coming with a custom, intuitive interface and advanced Android operating system, the Jitterbug Touch 2 is an ideal entry-level smartphone for people looking to move from a basic feature phone.
According to a 2013 AARP Media Sales and GreatCall study, more than 40 per cent of respondents surveyed said that smartphones are too complicated to use. The Jitterbug Touch 2 claims to help bridge this gap in the market, by offering all the features of a modern smartphone in a simplified format.
The new Jitterbug Touch 2 offers a customized, easy-to-use user interface, featuring the phone’s main functions organised in a single list format with large, legible letters. The home screen allows customers to access their favorite apps and contacts quickly, without wading through multiple screens and small icons. Yet the phone’s open environment provides full functionality and the ability to quickly connect to apps, websites and more.
The voicemail icon was not recognisable to the audience, so it was changed to the word “voicemail”.
Commenting on the launch, Dean Williams, vice president of technology at GreatCall said, “When we released the original Jitterbug Touch, we put it in the hands of our customers to learn firsthand how we could improve their smartphone experience. This customer feedback proved to be crucial in the development of this second generation phone, allowing us to see into the minds of our customers to determine what would add the most value and functionality for them.”
The Jitterbug Touch 2 offers affordable and flexible data plans.
The Jitterbug Touch 2 is priced at $139.99, with no contracts and no cancellation fees.
The Jitterbug Touch 2 can keep you safe and healthy with its 5Star Urgent Response mobile safety app that transforms the Jitterbug Touch 2 into a medical alert device. Then there is MedCoach, medication reminder app, and Urgent Care app.
Coming to the features, the phone has a 10.1-cm (4-inch) display screen with contacts and apps listed in a single list format with large, legible letters. It has a full, on-screen keyboard for quick and easy typing and a 5 MP camera, with front-facing camera.
