New seniors’ phone launches just in time for Christmas
The “silver haired” march towards taming the ever growing advances of technology has influenced Telstra in enhancing the qualities of its reinvented EasyTouch® Discovery 3.
This pocket sized dynamo gives me the dexterity to manipulate its big bold lettered keypad with the artistry of a concert pianist.
It provides a simplified, new colour coded menu with a help file that explains how to perform basic tasks.
A descriptor line has been added to each menu item to highlight its functions together with simplified icons.
This “nanna/pop” phone is sympathetic to deteriorating hearing loss and provides superb incoming and outgoing audio.
Telstra’s EasyTouch® Discovery 3 also keeps some of the most popular features from previous models, including big buttons, big font, louder volume and audible key tones, so you can hear the numbers you are typing and make sure you are dialling the right number.
Other features include an inbuilt three mega-pixel camera, integrated MP3 Player, hands-free speaker phone and a 32GB expandable memory card slot media player.
Being Blue Tick approved means that Discovery 3 is also recommended for both regional and rural hand held coverage.
The home school tutorial is refreshingly announced in a good ol’ Aussie accent and provides an easy step by step instructional without fear of any afterschool detentions.
While it doesn’t boast the celebrity status to strut the red carpet, it definitely provides seniors with a “true blue” handle on a range of basic and more sophisticated mobile technology.
Pricing and availability:
The Telstra Easy Touch® Discovery 3 is available for RRP $240 outright, or $0 upfront on a $20 Telstra Plan from Telstra Stores and dealers and online.
