Samsung C3060R – new phone for the elderly

Samsung will soon launch a new phone targeted at elders and called Samsung C3060R. Apparently, the South Korean company is the first among the giant handset makers to announce a phone like this.

Coming in a candybar form factor, the Samsung C3060R has an illuminated keypad with large keys made out of rubber. 

It also has a 2.2 inch TFT display with 176 x 220 pixels and a proprietary Samsung OS that’s tweaked to answer the needs of old people – the font size is larger than usual, the menus are simple and so on. 

Here’s what the C3060R looks like:

The new Samsung phone further features an SOS key, FM radio and a 1.3MP camera.

In Russia, the C3060R will be available starting June, for the retail price of around 6,000 Russian rubles ($190). No word yet about the handset’s release in other countries.
