Not everyone wants or needs a high-end smartphone. Some users want a simple device that is easy to use with basic functionality. This is especially true for older users with poor hearing and vision. Emporia had been selling mobile phones aimed at older users for a while and has unveiled its latest handsets at MWC.
The new Elegance is set to hit in Q2 2010 and will operate on GSM 900/1800 networks. The device has a 1.8-inch OLED screen and supports text and talking. Standby time is 250 hours and talk time is three hours.
