History[edit]

The financial performance of Doro has improved substantially after the re-focus on elderly customers. After marketing it's products all over the world, Doro phones and products can now be found in North America, Europe, South America, Asia and Oceania. In 2013 the company launched its smartphone, the Liberto 810 which aims to enable people to do more, connect more and share more.
