Doro reveals user friendly senior phone at MWC

Doro unveiled PhoneEasy 622 at the Mobile World Congress today.  Doro is a Swedish phone company that creates handsets for seniors, but what makes this new handset so unique is that it's Doro's first device to have video recording capabilities and a mobile ecosystem.  

A mobile ecosystem is a feature that allows the phone owner and family members to log in and access the calender app, where they can add information or schedule appointments such as a doctor's appointment.  It also includes a weather widget app that displays the current temperature on the main desktop.  

PhoneEasy 622 has a 2.4 inch screen and a 2-megapixel camera with an LED flash.  The keys' numbers are large and fairly spaced out for easy viewing and pressing.  There are also two notification lights that flash for missed calls and text messages.

PhoneEasy 622 holds up to 500 contacts and includes shortcut keys for text messages, the camera, and two phone numbers.  It runs on a 800mAh battery which allows for ten hours of talk time.

CNET's editors expect the phone to be a success because Doro has been extremely conscious of the senior market.

This mobile device is not yet available in the US and pricing for PhoneEasy 622 is currently unknown.
