Emporia Tablet For Seniors Announced

The mobile device maker Emporia announced their first tablet for senior citizens this week, called Emporia Tablet.

By the looks of it, they've done a lot of the right things to make the tablet as accessible and easy to use as possible, while still maintaining regular Android 11 features.

The Emporia Tablet is 10.1-inch tablet with a Full HD screen featuring a resolution of 1920 x 1200, while powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT8768 processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB storage.

The other main specs are Wi-Fi 5, BT 4.0, a 5000 mAh battery, stereo speakers, a 3.5mm audio jack, a USB C port, a 5MP front camera, and a 13MP rear camera.

But the main point here is the user interface, where Emporia have organized some main apps with large icons, with quick access to what is expected to be the most used apps.

The second aspect here is the charging dock that will always keep the tablet charged, as well as fixed in a position that makes it easier to use.

Theoretically you can set up any Android or Windows tablet, and to some degree an iPad in something of a similar way yourself, but the Emporia Tablet also comes with a user guide and training book for those who haven't got anyone to set it up for them or teach them how to use it.
