I think you are right, because I have purchased fully accessible Android phones for much less. But I do know sighted people also who only want to talk, maybe text, and they are not seniors, so there is a market out there.
If I had written the marketing text, I would have said something along the lines of, quote, for those blind persons who only want to talk and text.
I did write to the COO, and he is an Android enthusiast. This phone runs on Linux.
“Embrace the day with its mercies and blessings.”

Hi, just have one small comment this device is of course aimed squarely
at seniors and veterans I think it is called money. It’s a term that
has been often used by one of the list members when he and I discussed
why some things in adaptive technology seem to be pointed at certain
groups and/or certain situations. Just my two cents worth.
Sincerely Maurice Mines.
