Sure the iPhone gets all the buzz, but what if you don't need your cell to do a thousand things? Targeting the 50-plus crowd who may not want a complicated piece of technology, the Life Phone doesn't have an MP3 player or camera, but it does have an extra loud ringer and an easy-to-read screen that should should be a hit with baby boomers.

Implications - The new cell phone for seniors will have a battery life of 200 hours standby and 180 minutes if you are talking on it. Even though the phone is not meant to be fancy, you can send and receive text messages on it. The phone is also equipped with an alarm clock, birthday reminders and is hearing-aid compatible.
