It’s all very well having a smart phone that does everything except cook the dinner (we bet there’s an app for that too). But what if you just want a simple old-fashioned phone that doesn’t require a masters in quantum physics to operate? One with big buttons and a loud ring. Amplicomms' newly launched M6900 mobile phone might just be the ticket for technophobic elders who simply can’t get on with all this complicated modern stuff. The clam-style Amplicomms M6900 has big, easy-to-read buttons, a large character two-inch display, a ring that can be adjusted to an ear-splitting 85db, three one-touch dialling buttons, a phonebook for up to 300 entries, a talking keypad (in four languages), a conversation volume of up to 24db and an SOS button. The press release doesn’t say anything about FaceBook, ‘Angry Birds’, Hipstamatic or even a camera. But at £59.99, it’s way cheaper than a smartphone and a lot more simple to operate. Anyway, who needs all that FaceTwit marlarky?
