PhoneEasy 622 launches in Europe
BARCELONA, Spain--Launched today at Mobile World Congress, the PhoneEasy 622 is a new phone for seniors from Doro that will make its way to the U.S. soon. It has a 2-megapixel camera and is the first Doro handset that can record video.
As previously mentioned, the PhoneEasy 622 is the first Doro handset to incorporate video recording. Its 2-megapixel camera can record video in 240x320p or 144x176p. There's a front display for the time, and two notification lights for missed calls and unread text messages.
In general, the PhoneEasy 622 has a smooth plastic construction, but the back has a soft-touch rubber feel to it for extra grip. Above the back plate is an emergency call button that will dial up to five programmed numbers when pressed.
The handset is also the first of Doro's to feature a small weather widget on the desktop that shows the current temperature. Users can access weather information from the menu as well, and get a forecast for the next few days.
