Date:3/8/2010

Snapfon™ has released a new mobile/cellular telephone aimed at the senior citizen marketplace. This new phone called the “Snapfon™ ez ONE” is specifically designed to be both easy to see and easy to use. By offering safety features such as a dedicated SOS button that dials your preferred emergency contacts (up to 4) until it connects, and a high intensity LED flashlight to light up a dark path or stairway, Snapfon™ is raising the bar on what is expected for a mobile device targeted at senior citizens. Ease of use, simplicity and safety are the cornerstones of this design philosophy. The Snapfon™ ez ONE cellular telephone will work on both AT&T and T-Mobile service networks and requires no contract for use.

Chattanooga, Tennessee (PRWEB) March 8, 2010 -- Snapfon™ a division of VisiKey® LLC has released a new mobile/cellular telephone aimed at the senior citizen marketplace. This new phone called the “Snapfon™ ez ONE” is specifically designed to be both easy to see and easy to use. By combining large text and large keys with an easy to read display this phone simply makes all aspects of calling easier, and is still a small, attractive, and convenient device. “We feel there is a growing group of cell phone users that want a phone to just be a phone, not a music player, camera, or mini-computer. We have incorporated a few unique features into our Snapfon™ product such as an SOS button that calls up to 4 emergency contacts and keeps calling in rotation until you get an answer, a high intensity LED flashlight, and even an FM radio. All of which are present for safety and convenience reasons. We are seeing a greater focus on safety as our population ages, and a growing desire for emergency response devices," says company founder and President, Phil Sieg. The Snapfon™ ez ONE also has other specialized features such as a speaking keypad function that allows users to hear the outbound phone numbers in a clear speaking voice as they are being dialed. This function is especially important to low vision users. The Snapfon™ ez ONE is available immediately through both the Snapfon™ website (www.snapfon.com) and Amazon.com (on Amazon search for senior phone, or snapfon). The phone is priced at $99.99, a much lower price than competing senior phones, and is an unlocked phone that can be moved between service providers if the user decides to change plans. It is currently being sold without service but can be used on the AT&T and T-Mobile GSM networks as well as all other GSM cellular networks in the USA and Canada.

Snapfon™ is a part of VisiKey® LLC a company that specializes in making large print computer keyboards (www.visikey.net) for low vision users. The VisiKey® keyboard has been very successful with senior’s as well, and led to the development of the Snapfon™ product. VisiKey® LLC has been making enhanced visibility products since 2003, and is headquartered in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The VisiKey® products are distributed internationally from Canada, Europe, South America, and the Middle East.
