Modern mobiles are a triumph of miniaturisation and multifunction but that's not necessarily a good thing if you're elderly or partially sighted.Spotting this hitherto ungadgeted gap in the market, the folks at Italian outfit ITT have come up with the EasyUse mobile.Looking like a Fisher Price calculator it won't win any awards for style but it's got function well and truly nailed. The twelve backlit keypad buttons are chunkier than Gordon Ramsey's chips. They're accompanied by two of biggest send and receive keys we've seen since the Motorola brick phones of the '80s and four giant speed dial buttons.It also gets a 50 number phonebook, a speakerphone, a high contrast screen, 16 polyphonic ringtones, vibrate alert and, er, that's it. So no more excuses, nan, we're getting you a mobile.EssentialsITT EasyUsePrice: £140 PAYGOn sale: Now Contact: Easyusephone.co.ukRelated stories:Barebones Nokia 3109 keeps it simpleTeddyfone mobile for kidsVodafone launches Simple solution
