Telstra unveils phone for seniors

TELSTRA has unveiled its latest mobile phone designed specifically to suit the needs of older Australians, the Telstra EasyTouch® Discovery 3.

Telstra Consumer Marketing Director, Maryanne Tsiatsias said this latest model was designed and tested by Telstra Connected Seniors - a tailored program created to help older Australians learn more about technology - and the Telstra Disability Forum.

"Successor to the EasyTouch® Discovery 2, Telstra has worked for more than six months designing and refining this mobile phone, to ensure it offers customers the features they want and need to stay connected with their family and loved ones.

"Our customers told us that they wanted a simpler menu for easier navigation, and our new model gives them exactly that, so older Australians can get to the core functions they need, quickly and with minimal fuss.

"Keeping the flip-phone form factor of its predecessor, the user interface on the Easy Touch® Discovery 3 has been further enhanced. Customers now can easily view both missed calls and also new messages by simply opening the phone - the interface is intelligent and jumps straight to these new events, without the hassle of having to navigate through multiple menus.

"Telstra's EasyTouch® Discovery 3 also retains some of the most popular features from previous models, including a handy 'how to' DVD, hearing aid compatibility, big buttons, big font and audible key tones, so customers can hear the numbers that are typing and make sure they are dialing the right number."

Ms Tsiatsias said while the Telstra EasyTouch® Discovery 3 was designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind, it still included the extra features customers want.

"Despite its focus on accessibility, the EasyTouch® Discovery 3 also features a few high-tech features you would expect from a modern mobile phone, including an inbuilt three mega-pixel camera, integrated MP3 Player, hands-free speaker phone and a 32GB expandable memory card slot."
