Verizon Takes the Coupe for a Drive

Verizon Wireless made the CDM-8630 Coupe handset available for sale today. It is an entry-level phone for users looking for a basic handset with simple to use features. It has user-programmable emergency contact keys, as well as dedicated 911 and speakerphone buttons. The menu system has been pared down to make it easier to navigate and the fonts can be adjusted larger for easier reading. It costs $19.99 with two-year contract.
It seems they would have located that button somewhere less-likely to be an accidental press than that. Perhaps in the upper left-hand corner of the phone, with nothing else surrounding it, so that it would only be hit on purpose, as that would be the furthest button from your right-hand dialing finger.
Here's to hoping we don't have more hang-up calls to 911...
I think there's gonna be some accidental calls made to 911 made here. On the plus side, old folks are gonna be reassured 'cuz they're talkin' to the 911 operators so often, lol.
old people need love too.
