Doro® continues to expand its partnership with the Orange Group through a retail agreement with Orange Spain. The company has selected Doro’s top-selling mobile, the Doro PhoneEasy® 410s, to further support its customer offering with an easy-to-use mobile phone. Effective from July, Orange will sell Doro’s popular mobile phone, available with both Pay as yo Go and Pay Monthly options, in 2,100 stores nationwide in Spain and via www.orange.es.
Orange Spain was looking for options to increase its range of easy-to-use, simple mobile phones, and Doro’s models meet Orange’s requirements in terms of product quality and design.
In Spain, the group 60 plus represent about 20 percent of the population today, and it is still growing due to an ageing population. There are also a growing number of people with hearing difficulties.
“I am very pleased that our partnership with Orange, which already encompass France, the UK, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Carribean, continues to develop,” says Jérôme Arnaud, President and CEO of Doro. “I see this as a clear signal of trust from a major international player.”
