With all the emphasis on phones that are thinner and more feature-rich, Emporia is targeting a different demographic with the EmporiaLife handset. Think of it as the large-print Reader
s Digest version of the Razr. Big buttons and an easy to read LCD make it easy for someone with failing eyesight to operate the phone. Among the other features are a big red emergency button to call for help and the ability to run off AA batteries if the Li-Ion battery runs out of charge. The phone is even hearing-aid compatible.
