The ageing of the Baby Boomer generation has created a growing market for innovations aimed at seniors. These include a smart scheduler for medications and a shoe that can call for help if the wearer falls. Since 1995, Consumer Cellular has pioneered a no-contract plan model, focusing on retirees and seniors. Now they are expanding their formula to tablet computers. They have released a tablet designed for older users. Called the GrandPad, it is a touch-screen tablet integrated with internet and cellular service. The features of the GrandPad include dual front-facing speakers for clearer sound, a large holding area on the edges of the tablet, and a brighter screen. The tablet comes with a wireless charging dock, to eliminate tangled cables, built-in customer support with access to live operators, and flashlight and magnifying glass applications. In addition, the touch screen features large digital icons such as “call” and “new email”.
