Disabled people may benefit from selling mobile in favour of Nokia handset

3 December 2010 — 2:20 PM

Nokia claims to do more than most when it comes to providing mobiles for disabled people

Those with a disability may find they get more out of their mobile if they sell a used phone and replace it with a model from Nokia's extensive range.

That is because the Finnish brand has gone out of its way to create special products and accessories for people in such a situation, in the opinion of Nokia Conversations author Carita.

She uses today (December 3rd) – the United Nations' International Day of Persons with Disabilities – to point out what can be gained by signing up to a Nokia device.

The writer suggests up to 20 per cent of the world's population lives with a handicap of some form, so the improved accessibility and applications offered by the company are potentially tempting to many.

Carita explains the technology provider has developed its Nokia Wireless Loopset specially for people with hearing difficulties.

Among the firm's most recent releases are the N8 and C7.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "What’s highlighted here is the need for everyone to have a mobile phone that’s individually suited to them. If you don’t, why not trade-in your old handset for cash? You could use the money you make to buy a new model."
