CES 2012: A glimpse at the new Solid and Click phones from Emporia

1:23 /

At CES 2012 Lynn La take a look at two new phones from Emporia, the rugged Solid, and the senior friendly Click.

Hey, guys. It's Lynn La from CNET and I'm here at CES 2012 in Las Vegas here to show you 2 Emporia phone. Now, this phone is the Emporia Solid and as you can see it's built pretty tough. I think it's perfect for kids or people who have a rugged lifestyle and this is built for military specifications, so it has an extra thick glass and it's shock proof, slash proof and it has an LED flashlight that comes with it. Now, another phone I have for you guys is called the Emporia Click. It was made for seniors in mind and you can see that there are huge buttons here. And these are 3 pre-prorgrammed buttons that you put in for your most dialed phone numbers. On the back, there is an emergency call button and this is when something happens to you and you can't be able to dial your phone immediately. You can hold down this button for 3 seconds and it will automatically start calling 5 pre-program numbers that you put it sequentially, so you could contact people that you might want when there's an emergency. Now, both of these phones are going for less than $150 each. There's no word on the carriers yet, but Emporia tell me that they're most likely gonna come on T-Mobile. Again, this is the Solid and the Click and I'm Lynn La with CNET.
