While it seems that nearly everyone has a smart phone these days, many doctors are warning there could be some unintended consequences of long term use. For starters, the bright screen can often hurt your long-term eye health-especially so at night- and the low battery life of many smart phones means constant use of charging devices made of cheap overseas materials that can create electric waste and battery corrosion over long term use.
Even aside from health concerns, many smart phones are expensive with price tags close to $1000, containing many cool features that may be unnecessary to the average consumer. Yet, it seems like there are very few options that come in between expensive smart phones and disposable flip phones that offer no internet connection. That’s where the Kingrow K1, comes to mind. I first read about this smart phone being developed in a business magazine, and I took particular interest given their use of e-ink, an exciting technology being considered for consumer electronics. With e-ink, imagine an etch-a-sketch type design, eloquently displayed in black and white with one key difference from normal screens being the anti glare ink like feature the screen possesses. Doctors have noted that e-ink simulates real print ink in a way that many smartphones and word processors can not, making e-ink optimal for reading kindle or google e-books.
I was fortunate enough to reach out to the makers of Kingrow and receive a free sample to test the e-reading technology for myself and I came away very impressed. Aside from the ability to read books and make phone calls and texts, the device boosts an impressive collection of essential apps without being overwhelming, and the battery lasts for literal weeks as opposed to my iPhone which dies in about three hours of non-use.
The Kingrow has not been released to the market yet as the company’s project team and engineers are refining the features to ensure the phone meets all the goals it set out at launch, but if you want to get in early on sales for the phone (whether for yourself or as a gift), you can invest in the project on indiegogo.com right now and come away with the brand new phone set for early release around August for just a $299 investment.
Make no mistakes, this phone can do everything most smart phones can do like browse the internet, take pictures, and read articles or books, but at a much cheaper cost, and more importantly at a much lower long term health risk than most smart phones.
So what are you waiting for? Take advantage of the K1:IGG special on indiegogo and get your hands on one of the most revolutionary technologies in the smart phone market today!
