With a particularly simple user interface, the first tablet from Emporia is intended to bring the target group 65+ to the Internet. […]
Actually, tablets are ideal devices for seniors who do not want to buy a computer, but can use a smartphone rather poorly because of the small display size. But the manufacturers have not yet dared to create a special product for the target group of over 65-year-olds. That’s about to change, because Emporia has introduced its first corresponding tablet.
Easy-to-use user interface
Based on the feedback of its users, the Austrian specialist for senior phones also uses its easy-to-use user interface, which is based on Android 11. It shows seven freely assignable control panels in the main screen for the most used functions of the user and offers a large font display. Programs such as WhatsApp can also be used. A 100-page tablet training book is included, and there is a 60-day return guarantee if you do not like it.
The equipment includes, among other things, a SIM card slot, as many seniors do not always have Wi-Fi or want to enter cumbersome passwords to connect. Via the mobile network, you can still access the Internet and telephony via VoLTE, but only with 4G. Other features include a rear 13-megapixel camera, an IPS display with 10.1 inches and 1920 × 1080 pixels, a battery with 5000 mAh, an eight-core processor from MediaTek and 4 GB of memory. The data storage of 32 GB can be expanded by 128 GB via microSD card. The housing is made of aluminum.
The Emporia tablet will be available from November 15 and will cost 299 euros. A stand with charging function and loudspeaker, which is particularly practical for video calls with the 5-megapixel frontcam, is included in the scope of delivery. Accessories include a screen protector, a second stand and a bookcover with a magnetically dockable QWERTY keyboard.
