Doro PhoneEasy 740

Doro's PhoneEasy 740 is the company's first 3G Android smartphone, which comes with a simplified UI for ease of use



A Preview of the Doro PhoneEasy 740

27th February 2012

The PhoneEasy 740 was one of the weirdest phones to come out of MWC 2012, as it sees Doro bringing its senior-focused features to the smartphone market.

Yep, you read that right. The Doro PhoneEasy 740 is a far departure from the Swedish phone-maker's previous releases. Powered by Google's Android Gingerbread software, Doro's debut smartphone pairs a 3.2-inch HVGA (320 x 480) touchscreen with a slide-out alphanumeric keypad - as a way of giving customers the option of familiarity. The keypad adds a fair bit of bulk to the 18mm-thick handset, which is no doubt thanks to its oversized keys, designed for those with clumsy fingers in mind.

Under of the hood of the PhoneEasy you'll find a 650MHz single-core processor, which provides the force behind Doro's all-new Experience UI. This over-simplified custom skin provides a "fuss-free" experience with well-spaced, large and clear application icons, Doro explains, alongside a web-based management portal that enables the user, or their family and friends, to remotely manage the content on the handset.

It may be a basic smartphone aimed at the elderly, but you'll also find a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, 512MB of internal memory (expandable to 46GB via microSD), Bluetooth 4.0 and fast 3G and WiFi connectivity.

The Doro PhoneEasy 740 will be released in the UK in Summer 2012.

A full review will be published here once the phone has been released.
