Mobile World Congress 2014 

Variety that connects generations

Variety that connects generations.


Experience the newest highlights by emporia at the Mobile World Congress.


emporia is the leader in technology that makes communication easier for older generations. We’ll be presenting to you our latest achievements in research and development at the Mobile World Congress, where the technology of the future is on display today.


This year, emporia is spotlighting variety to go along with its principle of simplicity. On the one hand variety means more models to choose from - models made not only with our specific clientele in mind, but which also adhere to industry standards and have therefore been equipped with a micro USB port.


New apps for mobile phones and tablets

With variety we also mean the development of new, user-friendlier apps for mobile phones and tablets that both connect and assist generations.


We’ll also be introducing new hardware accessories in Barcelona, such as the emporia CONNECTOR. You can get a sneak preview of it here in this invitation! The emporia CONNECTOR is a charging cable with a special applicator that makes recharging mobile phones that much easier.


We look forward to seeing you in Hall CS 80 of Congress Square!

Mobile World Congress 2013 

Connecting generations

Discover emporia Telecom’s latest products and services which bring generations closer together through better communications.


At Mobile World Congress, we see lots of brand new technology, most of which is not simple or straightforward. It can be a lot to take in. Ask yourself this: how many times have your parents asked for help when using the latest gadget?


emporia helps everyone feel more included in modern communications by ensuring simplicity comes first.


As smart as needed, as simple as possible.


This was the idea behind creating emporia’s latest mobile phone – emporiaCONNECT Working closely with the University of Cambridge, emporia has designed a phone that is incredibly easy to use. emporiaCONNECT features a large high-resolution display and a high quality camera, but what makes it really stand out is the way it works with other family member’s smartphones.This unique multi-generational approach is a great new way for families to share the moments they love with the older generation through their mobile phone.


Come by the booth in Hall3/C124, and see how communication can reconnect the

generations. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Close to the customer 

What's a pin-code? Why do I need a SIM-card? How do I write an SMS? What should I do if my prepaid card is empty? What happens if the battery is empty? Modern technology opens a lot of questions that might make you insecure. emporia wants to give you more advice and confidence around new technology.


The setting of the competition "einfach telefonieren" in Germany, Austria and Switzerland was unique. For the first time ever people with live experience over the age of 50 were asked to present and discuss their ideas online. A high-class jury picked the best ideas. We will follow up with competitions in other countries shortly.
