Can Seniors Use the Just5 Spacephones?

Just5 introduced an interesting line of simple cell phones last year. The company introduced the J510 model in Las Vegas. The manufacturer is calling this line of handsets as the "Spacephones."

The Just5 Spacephones sound like very technological handsets. So would these phones be ideal for seniors?

The answer is yes. You see, the J510 or Spacephone utilize the same design scheme as the Just5 cell phone for seniors. It offers large buttons, speaker, and the SOS button, and a dedicated button that can be pushed for emergency assistance.

Just5 also sees the J510 as an ideal cell phone for senior citizens. Alex Petrov VP of Operations at Just5 Americas said that:
“The J509 will eventually be seen as a necessity for seniors who want to be out and about. With the SOS feature, we expect them to be popular inside the home as well, maybe replacing the landline for many seniors previously resistant to that idea. The phones are durable and long-lasting, and the calling plans are affordable.”
I'm not sure when this handset will be offered in the US. The company's website only shows the j509 so perhaps it will be available in the future.

That's it for this mobile phone for seniors. Stay in touch for more post on senior cell phones and related topics.
