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.
