Now that I have my hands on the device and had my grandmother play with it, I can assert that it is the perfect senior phone. It's large enough and uncomplicated to work with arthritic fingers and doesn't require many instructions to work. Most actions can be completed in less than 3 steps.
The only problem? It doesn't work on most carriers in Canada. John's
Update: Their site has been corrected and no longer mentions "3G GSM" it is listed as a quad-band GSM phone, which correctly identifies the requirement of a GSM stack.
