Consumer Cellular today announces the launch of the Doro 824, the North American version of the 4G smartphone Doro Liberto® 825.
“We have seen a steady shift over the past 20 years where many customers who previously preferred big button feature phones have now started upgrading to smartphones. We’ve been working with Doro since 2009, when we introduced our first senior-specific flip phone. It’s been exciting to see the evolution of technology that now allows us to offer a smartphone specifically developed for our senior customers,” says John Marick, CEO of Consumer Cellular. “While many or our existing smartphone offerings are well-suited for seniors, the Doro 824 takes it one step further by providing interactive opportunities for families and/or caretakers to remotely manage their loved one’s device. This unique feature makes it an attractive option, not only for our senior customers, but also for their caretakers and families.”
"After Bell in Canada, we are extremely happy to add national US territory to our smartphone distribution in North America with our long lasting partner Consumer Cellular," says Jérôme Arnaud, CEO at Doro. Trough Consumer Cellular, Doro has sold more than one million mobile phones in the USA since the partnership first was initiated.
Consumer Cellular is a top-rated wireless carrier that provides no-contract cellphones and service plans primarily to those 50+. The company has been an AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) provider since 2008 and offers AARP members special discounts on service. Consumer Cellular's wireless phones and plans are sold all over USA at leading retailers such as Target and Sears as well as direct to consumers at ConsumerCellular.com.
