Sprint launches Samsung M240, a budget flip with large keys
Sprint has launched the Samsung M240, a flip phone that is equipped with large keys. After a $150 haircut, the device will cost you $19.99 with a 2 year contract. Besides the extra large keys that make typing easy, the phone offers threaded text messaging and web browsing. A 960mAh battery provides up to 6.5 hours of talk time. With all off the mega-dollar smart phones we've seen lately, here is a device that will text, browse and make/receive phone calls all for less than lunch for two at Boston Market.

This phone is a stylish one. It is truly classy to look at. Well I believe that flip always look attractive. However, I don’t think that the elderly will need a phone that can browse the web. What they need is a simple phone just like Just5 phone. Apart from providing simple features, this phone does not also offer a contract so the user will not be locked up with it. I believe that just like me, the seniors will love to have a phone that will never hurt their purse. Nowadays, more and more people have become practical enough. When the economy experienced a sudden nosedive, a number of people have become wise spenders. So it appears that Just5 phone will appear more attractive to the elderly as compared to Samsung M240. Besides, what will be their reason to spend an expensive amount for a phone that offers the features they won’t actually need. They will surely settle to a reasonably priced phone that simply offers everything that they need in a phone. www.Just5.com
