Gloves On, Gloves Off

Mon 15 Feb, 2010 // Firstnumber Team

With this year's 'big freeze' only set to continue, many people will have become accustomed to the difficulty of trying to text or call from a mobile whilst wearing that much loved winter wardrobe staple – gloves. Fear not however, as we introduce to you the world's first glove friendly mobile!

Featuring extra large buttons and a super bright screen, forward-thinking phone maker Emporia have launched two new mobiles dedicated to simplicity; a breath of fresh air when mobile phones can do everything short of making your bed and packing you off with a homemade lunch.

While the EmporiaELEGANCE is better suited for the style conscious among us, the EmporiaSOLID is perfect for everything this winter could throw at you and – most importantly- is the world's first mobile phone which you can use with gloves.

Gone are the days of trying to text with your nose or even going so far as to bare your chilly digits when trying to answer a call. If this wasn't enough, the phone also claims to be water resistant which is ideal when texting in a snow shower or chin-wagging in the slush.

Now it's safe to venture outside with your mobile phone, callers needn't worry about leaving cheap international calls indoors either.

To check your free minutes to national numbers includes calls with Firstnumber, simple call your service provider and ask them whether our mobile access number i.e 07744939700 is allowed within your free minutes.

So whether you want to make cheap mobile calls to Azerbijan or Zimbabwe, you're only ever a dialing code away.
