Doro HandleEasy cell is a good option for your sausage-fingered uncle

That’s a bit of a grotesque-sounding headline, isn’t it? But it’s true. This handset is one of those designed for older people with limited manual dexterity and no experience with mobile phone technology.

It’s got a simple layout and basic high-contrast screen, easy-to-set quickdial buttons, and no features to speak of other than text messaging and an FM radio (oldsters love that stuff).

We tried to set my Grandma up with some Motorola flip phone last year and it was a disaster. This HandleEasy is something the Greatest Generation (and their retiring, non-tech-savvy kids) can actually use.
