Virgin Mobile has unveiled a new mobile phone specifically designed for left-handed people. Dubbed the Sony Ericsson LH-Z200 , it features a unique keypad layout with the number keys positioned from right to left, instead of the standard left to right.
This simple but clever design makes dialling, texting and menu navigation quicker and easier for anyone left-handed. Famous left-handers include Oscar winning actress Nicole Kidman, Prince William, glamour model Melinda Messenger and John Lydon.
Avril Fewell, the director of left-handed affairs at Virgin Mobile, said: “We have been approached by thousands of left-handed customers who told us they wanted a phone which would work for them. Britain’s seven million left-handed people should not be ignored.”
The Virgin Mobile Sony Ericsson LH-Z200 will be available from today, April 1st. The retail price is £119.99.
