Samsung M400, a new phone designed specifically for seniors and people with disabilities

The new Samsung M400 is a cell phone that is designed specifically with seniors and disabled people as their target consumers. It has a large screen with settings that allow the font size to be adjusted to make it bigger for seniors and disabled people. An oversized keypad, making typing easy. A dedicated 911 key, so users can quickly dial 911 with just a press of a button. And a text-to-speech client that reads menus, submenus, text messages, dialed numbers, caller ID and missed calls to the users for the hard-of-hearing. This is a new and innovative way to make a cell-phone. This is great and expands accessibility of mobile technology to many users who couldn’t use it before.
