T he holiday season is fast approaching, bringing mounting pressure to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. While there is always much fanfare around products that have lots of bells and whistles, many people prefer gifts that help them stay connected in the easiest way possible. Arlene Harris is known as the First Lady of Wireless (first woman to be inducted into the Wireless Hall of Fame, in 2007) and is the inventor of the popular Jitterbug cell phone and service. She understands the frustration of trying to share in the daily lives of loved ones who are often intimidated by the complicated technology, products and gadgets we rely on to stay connected but that simply don’t work the way they want them to.

Easy to Use holiday gifts

In a recent poll by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), 87 percent of respondents agree that ease of use is the most important factor when evaluating new technologies. This year, shoppers can take advantage of some very elegant products that can be used within minutes, with no manuals required! To help bring families and friends closer this Holiday season, Ms. Harris suggests several user-friendly tech products that really stand out for their simplicity. "Connecting is more important than ever during the Holiday season," said Harris. "It's a time when people want to share important moments and memories - but given our mobile lifestyles it's just not always possible to do this in person. Luckily, there are new products coming to market that really help people feel connected and in touch with each other, without having to think about anything remotely technical."

Jitterbug cell phone and service

A cell phone is one of the most important "connectors" we have these days, enabling people to come together at any time, from anywhere. But many people reject traditional, feature-laden cell phones, which is exactly why Ms. Harris's invention has become so popular. The Jitterbug Cell Phone and Service is not just an easy-to-use phone with bigger backlit buttons and larger, easy-to-read text, but a whole new cell phone experience tailored specifically to the needs of those who want simplicity. It's a great gift for Mom and Dad and a "wish list" item for anyone who wants a hassle-free way to connect with family and friends when they're away from home. Now available in a stylish Graphite color in addition to the original White, Jitterbug provides a more intuitive user experience, thoughtful features and personalized service with a "human touch". Live, Jitterbug operators are available 24-hours a day are on hand to place calls, provide directory assistance and add names to the phone list. Jitterbug is an affordable gift for anyone this holiday season, priced competitively at $147 with service plans as low as $10 a month. And unlike other cell phone companies, Jitterbug offers no contracts, no fees to switch or cancel, no long distance and no roaming fees. Jitterbug is nationally available directly through Jitterbug and has recently launched in retail stores as well.
