ITT Easy Use Phone

 EasyUse Phone Available now
16th October 2007

At Mobile Gazette, we believe that technology should be accessible to everyone - and although we love our high-tech gadgets, we understand that there's also a place for handsets that are very easy to use.

Falling into this "easy-to-use" category is the ITT Easy Use Phone, a device that has several features that are designed to appeal to those who struggle with today's tiny and over-complicated mobile phones.

 Easy Use Phone compared with Nokia 6300 The first thing to notice is that this is a big phone - much larger than a conventional handset (it's almost the same size as the brick-like Nokia E90). This isn't a bad thing, because it means that the Easy Use Phone comes with a set of really large buttons on the front. The keypad consists of a standard numeric layout, plus "call" and "hang up" keys and then four quickdial memory keys, designed either for frequent calling or emergency use. Below is a size comparison between the Easy Use Phone and the Nokia 6300, so you can get a feel for just how large the buttons are.

We haven't seen the display, but we understand that it comes with white-on-black text and has been designed for clarity. Technically, it's a "transflective negative LCD" with a backlight, so it should be usable in most lighting conditions.

There's a 50 number phonebook, and a choice of nine polyphonic ringtones. There's no mention of text capabilities, and since the Easy Use Phone has no letters on the keypad, we assume that SMS messaging is not possible.

 Easy Use Phone Accessibility isn't all about big buttons and simple displays - the Easy Use Phone also comes with a very loud speakerphone, strong vibrate mechanism and it's hearing aid compatible too. There's also a headset included in the standard sales package. The Easy Use Phone is available in black or silver colour schemes.

Despite the Easy Use Phone's considerable size and weight, the beefy 100mAh battery only gives about 6.5 days standby time and 2 hours 20 minutes talktime. For a phone of this type, we feel that the battery life should be much longer. Bear in mind that the ITT Easy Use Phone will be used by people who might not always remember to charge their phone, so twice the talktime and standby time would be very useful.

The ITT Easy Use Phone is available from selected retailers across Europe - in the UK it is available for around £138 SIM Free from Matamobile, in Germany Amazon.de stock it for €169.
