Consumer Cellular launches Doro PhoneEasy® 618 – the first 3G model for seniors on the North American market

Lund, 2012-12-13 10:30 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --


To further expand its offering to the growing number of seniors, U.S. Consumer Cellular has begun sales of the Doro PhoneEasy® 618 on the U.S. market. The model is available from Consumer Cellular today, and will also reach the stores of the retailer Sears – with over 2,000 locations – in January 2012.

Consumer Cellular and Doro began their partnership in 2010 and the Doro PhoneEasy® 618 replaces its predecessor, the Doro PhoneEasy® 410, with plenty of upgrades – most notably a 3.2-megapixel camera and MMS picture messaging. This clamshell model is highly appreciated by seniors with its intuitive user interface and 3G capabilities. Designed specifically with active seniors in mind, the phone accommodates reduced dexterity, hearing loss and decreased vision.

“We are very pleased with our partnership with Consumer Cellular, this product transition will increase the value of our offering to them and will contribute to our expected growth in the fourth quarter as well as in the first quarter of 2013. Doro’s sales on the North American market have developed, and are expected to continue to develop positively”, comments Doro’s President and CEO Jérôme Arnaud.
