LINZ, Milan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--“Connecting generations” that’s the motto of the newest mobile phone and service solution from emporia Telecom. The emporia handset emporiaCONNECT is an elegant clamshell phone with preinstalled relevant features like weather and orientation. With the Android and iOS app emporiaME children and grandchildren can support their seniors from afar. In Italy the handset is available exclusively with Telecom Italia.
"Italy is number one when it comes to family and family spirit. Therefore we decided to go with Telecom Italia for the world premiere of emporiaCONNECT and emporiaME.” said Eveline Pupeter, CEO of emporia Telecom. “A great innovation from Austria that goes into the world with big success!”
Weather, orientation, and shared images - according to recent studies these smart features are particularly important for seniors. To meet these wishes emporia has not developed just a classical smartphone for seniors, but a phone with easy access to these functions, the emporiaCONNECT. The handset combines a sleek design with a big keypad and display, which factor is protected from scratches due to the clamshell. Quick access to the main features, like the camera button on the side, makes the handset especially easy to use.
The smartphone app emporiaME is the connection to the younger generation. With it they can assist in the maintenance of the mobile phone, share calendar entries, and be close even if they do not live in the same city with the Collaborative Picture Viewing function.
“Seniors are still very often using prepaid offers. On the long run, these can be more expensive than fixed contracts. With the emporiaCONNECT we offer a handset that gets the extra value from the contract.” says Eveline Pupeter.
