Los Angeles, California (PressExposure) March 15, 2011 -- Consumer Cellular, the official cell phone carrier of AARP, recently unveiled the latest additions to it's expanding service line at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The new features are all part of the cell phone company's goal to allow it's customers a chance to live a more "connected" life. Being a "senior friendly" cell phone carrier, the features focus on helping our older generation.
Consumer Cellular announced plans to expand it's already successful "Mobile Captioning Service" to new markets throughout 2011. Mobile Closed Captioning works similar to how it does on TV, allowing the user to read what is being said on his or her mobile handset. This feature allows customers who are hard of hearing to still communicate via cellular technology.
Consumer Cellular also announced that it will be creating unique "lifestyle applications" for it's phones to help it's customer base lead fuller, healthier lives. Some examples they are working on include GPS tracking for seniors, allowing friends and family to stay in touch with their locations fr safety reasons. They are also going to release a mobile glucose monitoring application for diabetics.
Consumer Cellular were also excited to announce development of their new "Trip Tracker" social platform. This application will allow customers to record and share their varied travel experiences. The Trip Tracker will work across the mobile device as well as desktop computers.
These recent developments show Consumer Cellular's continued commitment to creating new and valuable additions to the mobile phone landscape, ensuring that seniors are not left out when it comes to the world's ever increasing dependence on mobile phone technologies.
Founded in 1995 in Portland, Oregon, Consumer Cellular has quickly become a cell phone carrier to be reckoned with becoming part of the Inc. 500 fastest growing companies in America. Their concentration on providing cheap cell phones and plans without the need to sign any form of contract have made them a popular choice for customers looking for a break in these hard economic times. Consumer Cellular uses the nation's largest voice and data network reaching some 296 million people.
