[BCAB] BBC News: First Braille phone goes on sale

I don't think this phone can even read text messages.  It's just for calling
so sadly for most people it's not really a very exciting phone.  More
importantly it doesn't seem as though the phone is user programmable which
would make the market even smaller.

Cheers

Graham

Hi Chris

I saw this on Friday evening as I follow BBC Tech on Twitter.  It might be
welcome news for those who want the most basic functionality at a reasonable
price.


Kind regards,

I saw this story on the BBC News iPhone App and thought you should see it:

First Braille phone goes on sale

London-based firm OwnFone has released what it says is the world's first
Braille phone, which has been partially constructed using 3D printing
techniques.
