emporiaTIME
is a mobile phone for “neo”-mobile phone users of all ages. Studies have shown that in particular women aged from 45 upwards and men aged from 60 hardly or very rarely use mobile phones. With emporiaTIME we have developed a mobile phone that works without a menu – corresponding to the demand for the simplification of devices regarding the hardware as well as the software design. Does this mean that I have to do without SMS, for example? No. Functions like text messaging are easily accessible through special keys which are placed on the side of the device – taking into account the results of ergonomic studies.
