Hey Gramps, Check out the Emporia RL1

Emporia-RL1

While many people consider things like video games, digital cameras, GPS and browsing pages and pages of Google results are a must for a mobile phone, there are others who just want to make a call, as simple and directly as possible. Obviously we’re talking about the elderly here, they usually aren’t concerned with being able to go on Facebook, download apps and twitpic self-portraits; although we have seen our share of savvy old timers.
