Samsung Russia has juts announced the C3060R, a phone dedicated to giving those in their golden years a chance to get connected. Big keys, bright backlight, a magnified user interface and a dedicated SOS button which accesses up to 5 emergency numbers all make the C3060R a choice handset for the mature crowd.
