Jitterbug releases Samsung Jitterbug J

You might notice a new addition to our pay as you go cell phone provider list: Jitterbug. Funny that the week we put up this review that the company comes out with another phone. This one is called the Jitterbug J, and like its predecessor it is of the most basic variety. The bottons are still large, and there still aren’t many of them. New additions include Bluetooth and a dedicated speakerphone button. Crave lists text messaging as a new “advanced” feature, but Jitterbug has offered text messaging on previous models. It also has a decent ringtone selection — and apparently sounds a dial tone when you open it up, which is all sorts of cool. The phone will cost $147, and there is no contract. You can find out more at Jitterbug’s website.
