Jitterbug Touch 2 smartphone designed for 'aging Americans' available now for $140

Sure, there are plenty of smartphones to choose from nowadays, but for some people it's more important to have a device that's very easy to use rather than, say, one that looks great and performs extraordinarily. Here's where GreatCall's just-announced Jitterbug Touch 2 comes in. This Ice Cream Sandwich-based smartphone isn't tailored for the new generation per se, but rather for folks like grandma and grandpa -- or, as the company puts it, "aging Americans." Much like its predecessor, the second-gen Jitterbug Touch is loaded with specs that likely won't wow many, including a 4-inch, 800 X 480 display with Qualcomm's MSM8625 1.5GHz CPU, 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage. However, GreatCall doesn't want this to be the focus; instead plans to lure people in with Jitterbug's utterly simple UI and suite of health / medical apps.
