This Isn't Your Grandma's Cell Phone! Yes It Is.

If there's one thing old people love it's soft food. If there's another it's stuff with giant-ass buttons so they can push the right one with their shaky, arthritic fingers. Aaaaaand I've officially depressed myself. Good times. Anyway, this is a cell phone for old people and people with fat fingers. Or, as we like to call them in the hand modeling biz, Vienna digits.

The 6380 Senior Mobile Phone ($75 USD) does actually have a few handy features, including a built in flashlight, and a giant "SOS" button on the back that can automatically dial a pre-set emergency number, and emit a loud warning alarm. It's also got a minimal display with large on-screen fonts, and a whopping 128×60 screen resolution.

I kind of want one. Not that I have fat fingers, because I don't. I'm just clumsy. One time I tried ordering a pizza and ended up spending an hour on a phone sex line. Oh hell yeah I want pepperoni on that.

Hit the jump for two more shots of the latest in geriatric communication technology.

    Wow, the author has some pretty sick ideas of what older people are like. Not all older people are like he describes. His attitude sucks, there are many older people that are fitter, more intelligent than the average young person.

  • Do you know how easy it would be to accidentally press than SOS button?
