Cell phone for Seniors: Kyocera TNT from Virgin Mobile

Here's another mobile phone for seniors that I found after surfing the web. The Virgin Mobile TNT or the Kyocera Adreno S2400 offers compact, simple design combined with an affordable price tag.

Let's take a closer look at the Kyocera TNT from Virgin Mobile.

The TNT features a clamshell design with emphasis on being a cell phone that concentrates on making calls and sending messages. That's always a good attribute for a mobile phone for senior citizens. A simple and practical handset will fit the needs of the elderly.

Let's delve deeper into the design of the Kyocera TNT.

The main display on this device measures 1.8 inches (160x128 pixels) and supports 65,000 color. It may not sound impressive but a touchscreen or a high-resolution display is not needed by senior users. The text is readable on this display and that's enough for elderly consumers.

The TNT also offers an external display but it's not very useful. It's a tiny (96x16 pixels) monochrome display that shows the date, time, battery life, and signal strength. Unfortunately, it may be too small for seniors.

The keypad for this handset is user friendly. The keys are a bit flush and slippery but it is still easy to use since the arrangement is spacious. The numbers on the keys are large and the back lighting is bright so users won't have to worry about misdials when texting or calling.

The TNT offers a decent selection of features for its price. This cell phone for seniors also offers a phone book, MP3 tones, vibrate mode, text messaging, a calendar, a calculator, an alarm clock, a voice memo, a two-way speakerphone and voice dialing.

That's it for the Kyocera TNT from Virgin Mobile. A simple and affordable phone with features that suit the elderly.
