Sprint has just announced the availability of a new flip phone that comes with easy access features for seniors and people with disabilities. The new phone is none other than Samsung's M400, which comes in the clamshell form factor and offers a 2.24-inch main screen, dedicated 911 and ICE (in case of emergency) buttons, and large keys on its alphanumeric keypad for near effortless typing on the go. It is available for free to new or existing Sprint customers with a mandatory two-year service contract.

Since you probably would not be too young to want to tote the Samsung M400 (imagine being a college going kid with everyone else sporting a smartphone, while you deal with something that has features from a different age), it makes perfect sense for Sprint to make the Samsung M400 as affordable as possible. - Edwin, Coolest Gadgets
