From point of view of a handicapped person with right below elbow amputation issues (cf. title of this blog), Apple's iPhone was found to be cumbersome. I reported these to Apple numerous times, with absolutely no effect whatsoever. Apple also appears to violate American law with that. 

Not so Nokia.

I bought a Nokia Lumia 920 that runs Windows Phone 8. And a side by side comparison yields a very clear result. The Nokia Lumia 920 wins that side by side comparison.

Here are the details.

The problem

The iPhone needs to be unlocked for usage, and also to pick up a telephone call.

In the second instance, the unlocking has to be done reasonably fast.

The unlocking features is a slider that needs to be pushed across the screen, horizontally from left to right. There is no way to alter position or direction of this virtual button that is provided by Apple.

This is obviously laid out to be used by two-handed individuals or by right handed on-handed individuals; other ways to operate the switch are possible but lack safe and fast access. Missing phone calls then is the rule rather than an exception, I have to return them rather than being able to pick them up in time, and that is where discrimination becomes an issue.

What do I use this for? Mainly for work. Because among other stuff, the iPhone is a tool for time of death estimation.

Unlocking the iPhone with a left hand and a safe grip is difficult or impossible for me; I will have to rotate the device and thus make the grip less secure.

Using a prosthetic hand or hook, using inductive touch screens can be a big problem. As modern electronics are attractive in many ways and as particularly disabled people often need a better and much more thorough basis for planning and information for a range of individual reasons, modern PDAs, iPhones or other touch screen devices are attractive.

As can be shown such a pen will actually work with a prosthesis - hook or hand.

Here are some links to pens that may do the trick.
