Doro, a company that has made a name in providing leading telecommunication solutions for seniors has partnered with UK telecoms provider, Sky Mobile. As a result of this partnership, all customers of Sky Mobile including seniors will gain access to the inclusive and unique technology of Doro. The partnership is also leading to the launch of two new devices on the Sky Mobile network: Doro 7030 and Doro 8050, both are now available.
The Doro 7030 is priced at £9 per month and the Doro 8050 is priced at £13 per month. Both phones bring together a combination of Doro’s sleek Scandinavian design and Sky’s exciting offerings. The phones, like all other Doro devices for the seniors, have been designed to meet the requirements of over 65s.
Paul Sweeney, Managing Director at Sky Mobile, said “We know staying connected to family, friends and loved ones is important to all our customers. Bringing Doro’s phones to our range will keep more of our customers connected when they can’t be together.”
Peter Marsden, Managing Director, Doro UK & Ireland said: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Sky to bring Doro’s unique offering to Sky Mobile customers. Combining easy-to-use features with high-quality performance, the Doro 8050 and the Doro 7030 are the perfect devices to launch our partnership. We take all aspects of design seriously at Doro and the packaging for both handsets will not include any additional plastic, cutting down on unnecessary waste.
Both handsets will be among the first to be compatible with our imminent Response by Doro offering, a service that connects seniors with their family, friends, and support networks.”
