OwnFone by UK-based company is a phone that doesn’t even have a number pad, just speed dials to several important people that you set when you order the phone.
Don’t get confused, because that is how OwnFone works right now. No number just alphanumeric characters to label the contact buttons. You can say that this phone just for elderly, but who know you might love it because you are getting older by the second.
For us here, that cool, right?
[divider]What is OwnFone[divider]
OwnFone is the little personalised phone that connects you directly to the most important people in your life – that’s it! Just press the name of the person you want to talk to.
Users can choose to have 2, 4, 8 or 12 contacts on their OwnFone. Aside from the numbers, users can further customize their OwnFone by adding colors and style. You can leave the phone as it is, add a pattern or upload an image to be used as its background. Right now customers can only use alphanumeric characters to label the contact buttons, but in the future it will be possible to use Braille or even images as labels to make the phone even more accessible.
The phone is only about 0.28″ thick and weighs just 40g (about 0.09 lbs). It’s also rechargeable and can last up to a year in “Shutdown” mode.
Want your own OwnFone phone? Better move to the UK as it’s currently exclusive to the state. If you’ve got that taken care off, head to the OwnFone website and be ready to fork over £55 (~$87 USD) for the device itself. You’ll also have to sign up for a monthly plan that costs between £7.50-£15 (~$12-$24 USD).
