In the UK Doro has also achieved listings with Carphone Warehouse, O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Phones 4u, Shop Direct Group, Argos, Betterlife from Lloyds Pharmacy, Boots Hearingcare and HearingDirect this year.
Jérôme Arnaud, president and group CEO at Doro said: ‘2013 has been an impressive year for us and we are proud to have topped five million handset sales ahead of the Christmas period. This means that five million lives around the world have been made easier thanks to our innovative designs and pioneering approach.'
Doro, which targets the senior market with easy to use handsets, has sold in excess of one million easy-to-use mobile devices since May 2013.
This milestone comes just two months after the company launched its easy-to-use smartphone the Doro Liberto810.
Chris Millington, MD of Doro UK and Ireland, added: ‘We know that when users find a device easier and more enjoyable they will use it more. Doro’s approach ensures that regardless of age, or the type of mobile used, everyday communication is improved. This impressive achievement proves that we are connecting the generations. Our next objective is to get 80% of seniors connected to the web. This is the next frontier in our strategy to bridge the digital divide.'
During 2013 Doro acquired its German distributor IVS. The business also became a certified Google partner enabling Doro handsets to be preloaded with Google’s suite of mobile applications and services.
