BlindShell is an intuitive and simple cell phone with big, tactile buttons and lots of features. In addition to making phone calls and sending text messages, you can get the current weather forecast, listen to Internet radio, or find out your current location. BlindShell works with AT&T and T-Mobile as well as other GSM networks. This is the black model. It is also available in red.
By holding down one of the volume buttons, you can control the phone with your voice. With Voice Control you can::
- Call and send a message to a contact
- Open any application in the phone
- Get information about the weather
- Get your location. Address and GPS
Instead of using the keypad to input text, just simply say it. The phone will write it down for you! Among others, you can use voice dictation for these actions:
- SMS dictation
- Email dictation
- Taking notes
- Dictating your agenda
This phone has a physical keypad with big, well spaced tangible buttons. We wanted the BlindShell Classic to have a premium keypad, and we believe that we succeeded.
The spacing between the keys makes orientation on the keypad very easy, so you will be able to distinguish between the keys right away. No need to fumble around with your fingers to find the right button. No need to be worried about pressing the wrong button either.
Many useful applications
BlindShell includes a variety of useful features. With the Email client, you can write and receive emails from your friends and colleagues. With Internet radio you can listen to thousands of radio stations from around the world. The weather app will tell you the current weather and forecast for the next three days. The location app can tell you your current GPS location or the nearest address.
SOS emergency button
If you get in to a situation where quick assistance from someone else is needed, you can use the SOS emergency button. Pressing the button for at least 3 seconds will call your emergency contact. (This contact can be set whenever you want). The outgoing emergency call needs to be confirmed by you, so you do not need to worry about making the call accidentally.
APPLICATIONS & FEATURES
BlindShell Classic is packed with features. You can just make calls and send messages and nothing else, but, if you want to use the full potential of the phone, there is nothing preventing you from making the most out of it.
