Cellphones are not all made equal and this braille cellphone was certainly made with one particular demographic in mind. The cellphone allows the blind, who often have trouble using traditional cellphones, the ability to make calls with this compact, yet powerful alternative.
OwnFone is hitting a niche in the market that desperately needs addressing. There’s no reason for someone who has limited sight to not have the ability to make phone calls and thats where this phone steps in.
The phone doesn’t feature all the nifty aspects of a modern smartphone, such as Internet and text messaging, but for those that want the meat and potatoes of a phone, the OwnFone performs admirably and then some. The phone even features adjustable braille patterns on the front and back for some added customization.
