Vodafone touts low-tech phone for app-phobes

Talk'n'text - and not much else

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Say hello to the Vodafone Emporia RL1, a 60 quid handset designed solely for voice calls and texting - and none of that app nonsense.

Emporia RL1

And with large, clearly labelled buttons, the RL1 is not only geared toward the smartphone-phobic but also folk whose eyes and motor skills might not by up to touchscreen navigation.

The 92g phone has a OLED screen, and only connects over 2G networks - on the 900MHz and 1800MHz bands only, we're afraid, making it less useful as a low-cost phone you can take overseas without worry too much about dropping it in the pool or having it nicked.

The RL1's two nods toward smartphone functionality: a calendar and an alarm.

The Emporia is available from Vodafone on PAYG now. ®
