    Created by Austrian firm Emporia the phone has been specifically developed for the older generation who find existing handsets too fiddly and complicated to use.

    1. produced for elderly and older people.The Life phone is aimed at those aged 50-plus who do not want a handset crammed with every possible feature.

    2. Instead of a camera or music player it has a loud speaker tuned for those who are either partially sighted or use a hearing aid, a big screen and buttons.

    3. Very loud

    4. Can be programmed for 5 emergency numbers

    5. There's a big red button which will summon one emergency number

    6. The orange backlight for the 2.7in (6.8cm) monocolour screen has been chosen because it is easy to read for those with failing sight.

    7. Volume on ringing tones and loudspeaker can also be set to be very loud to help the hard of hearing.

    8. It also has an extra-strong vibration function to alert its owner that someone is calling.

    All well and good eh. Now here's the crunch

    It's being for the over 50's!!

    OMG. I'm elderly:eek::eek::eek:

    Isn't this the phone which is really pricey though even though it is basic ?

    Probably as it never really took off. I'll see if I can find a price.
