Are you seeking a mobile phone without the complexity of an iPhone or standard Android phone, but which still contains a rich assortment of features? Would you like a phone with an easy-to-use interface, intuitive menu structure and affordable price?
We're delighted to offer the BlindShell Classic, a phone that includes many of the features you may desire in a smart phone, but without a smart phone's learning curve. The Blind Shell Classic features tactile, physical buttons, voice navigation, the ability to change the text size on its physical screen, and a convenient, portable footprint that allows you to easily fit it in your pocket or purse.
**** Please Note: BlindShell mobile phones are compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile and other networks in the USA which use the AT&T and TMobile towers.****
This phone features a physical keyboard with big, well spaced, tactile buttons. Operating the phone is as easy and comfortable as it used to be before the smartphone era. The spacing between the keys makes orientation on the keypad very easy, so you will be able to distinguish between the keys right away. No need to fumble around with your fingers to find the right button. No need to worry about pressing the wrong button.
With voice control you can give the phone voice commands without having to use the keypad! These include:
- Calling and sending a message to a contact
- Opening any application in the phone
- Getting information about weather
- Getting your location — Address and GPS
Instead of using the keypad to input text, just simply say it. The phone will write it down as text! Use your voice for:
- SMS dictation
- Email dictation
- Taking notes
- Dictating the names of events for your calendar
SOS emergency button
If you get into a situation where quick help from someone else is needed, you can use the SOS emergency button. Pressing the button for at least 3 seconds will call your emergency contact. (This contact can be set whenever you want). The outgoing emergency call has to be confirmed by you, so you do not need to worry about making the call accidentally.
BlindShell regularly releases new features and functionality for the BlindShell Classic. You can update your phone for free over data or WiFi whenever updates are released.
OTHER PHONE HIGHLIGHTS
Now you can tag objects with your phone with ease! By using special stickers, you can tag (or label) objects around you. Just tell your phone what object a label is attached to, and easily recognize it later by using your phone. You can either record a short voice message, or enter a written description. One set of 24 labels is supplied with the phone!
Phone Applications You'll Actually Use
Object tagging isn’t the only cool application in the BlindShell Classic. Another is the Email client, with which you can write and receive emails from your friends and colleagues. With Internet radio you can listen to thousands of radio stations from around the world. The Weather app will tell you the current weather and forecast for the next three days. If you are unsure about the place where you currently are, use the Location app, which will tell you your current GPS location and a nearest address.
