We had a look at the Doro 820 Mini just moments ago, and if you’re interested in getting one, Tesco Mobile have confirmed that they will be selling it.
Yes, it’s for the elderly, but Tesco are keen to point out the “beginners” who might be interested in this too. Specs aren’t going to be flagship, but the 800×480 4″ screen, coupled with a 5 megapixel and it’s based on Android 4.4.2. The device comes with an in-built “coach” so that family members can assist remotely.
How much? Well, Tesco want just £10 per month for the device, and it’s also available on PAYG for just £99.
Tesco Mobile introduces ‘smartphone for beginners’
Smartphones now the handset of choice for tech savvy silvers
· First smartphone with built in ‘app coach’
· Family members can ‘coach’ remotely
· Available from Tesco Mobile from just £10 per month
Tesco Mobile has announced the launch of a new smartphone aimed at the ‘grey’ technology market of older mobile users who want to master smartphones and access the internet on the move.
The Doro 820 Mini is the first ‘understanding’ smartphone that provides help and coaching so users can master features at their own pace, and with the help of family or friends, making it the ideal handset for those taking their first steps into the world of smartphones.
Each pre-loaded app has a built in coach that takes users through a step-by-step tutorial on how they work.
The Doro 820 Mini is set to open up the world of apps to those previously daunted by the technology. Smartphone features such as video calling and email on the go will also revolutionise how users stay in touch with family.
