I have seen the ChaCha and it looks quite accessible. I like the fact that it has dedicated call and answer buttons as well as arrow keys and the full qwerty keyboard. Access to android phones is improving all the time but it's probably not as well polished as access to the IPhone. It's the inflexibility of the IPhone interface which is the problem. In my view the IPhone is really better seen as a portable computer which happens to have a mobile phone tacked on. That's now how I use mine. I have gone back to my Nokia N85 for general mobile phone use. In 2 months I will be able to upgrade my phone and I will probably need to decide between a phone such as the Cha Cha or the apple Iphone 5. The rumours suggest that the IPhone 5 will be quite similar to the IPhone 4 so I am very tempted by the ChaCha. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of Sue & Ian Sent: 04 September 2011 20:17 To: British Computer Association Subject: [BCAB] Android phones Hello Everyone, I have read with interest all the threads relating to the Iphone but after several visits to the apple store to have a play I have decided it's not for me. I would therefore be very interested to know if anyone finds the Android phones any easier to use, I am totally blind. I have had a quick look at one called Chacha, what is the concensus on this type of phone. Sorry for this message being so long.
