Jablotron's GDP-02 unportable cellphone for the elderly

Jesse D. Lewin

Jablotron GDP-02A Czech company named Jablotron announced their new cellphone on Monday.  If it doesn't look like any other GSM handset you've ever seen, that's because the GDP-02 "Grand" is really a desktop phone.  Designed for elderly users who have difficulty with smaller phones, the phone features an illuminated display and a QWERTY keypad to allow users to send and receive text messages in addition to making calls. The catch is that since it's a desktop phone it's more or less the opposite of portable, though for a lot of old people not being able to bring their cellie to the mall might not be a problem.
