Jitterbug Debuts Touch 2
Jitterbug recently released the Touch 2, a new touch-based phone that targets its older users who might want something more capable than a feature phone. The device has a 4-inch screen with 800 x 480 pixels, 1.5GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, and 4GB of storage. It does away with the slide-out QWERTY keyboard found on last year's original Touch smartphone. The Touch 2 is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but runs a user interface skin custom-developed by Jitterbug to be easier and simpler to use. It offers a bevy of the services that make Jitterbug popular with members of the AARP, such as 5Star Urgent Response, Shake for Help, and MedCoach. The Jitterbug Touch 2 does not require a contract. It costs $159 ($139 for a limited time), and is available directly from GreatCall.

If this statement doesn't show how it's time to ditch the dumb label of "feature phone" then I don't know what will. Something more capable than a "feature phone" would have,,, wait for it,,, MORE FEATURES. A smart phone is loaded with features, features is what a smartphone is all about, so therefore a smartphone is not only a feature phone but the ultimate feature phone
Of course it's not because of the poor thinking behind the creation of the label "feature phone".
It's time to stop using this label and use another that actually fits.
Not a bad idea.
