The Big Easy (buttons)

The Doro PhoneEasy 740 uses the Android OS, but don't expect it to look like anything you've seen before. It has a simplified UI for easy use, but it can still access the Internet and the Doro app store, DoroSelection.

A little thick on the side

In addition to its 3.2-inch screen, the PhoneEasy 740 has a relatively thick profile. It's slated for a 2013 release in Q2. It is estimated by Doro reps that it'll go for $99.

Push those buttons

As a handset for an older demographic, Doro chose to retain the big, rubber, tactile buttons as part of the PhoneEasy 740.
