A smartphone for hotel guests grants access to unlimited calls and recommendations for local attractions

Between the hospitality industry's goal of making each guest touch point seamless and the increase in what a smartphone can do, a company called handy has designed a device to be purchased by hotels and placed in rooms for the hotel guests to use for free. Free Wi-Fi has become customary in many hotels, but handy lets guests use the smartphone for much more. The device provides guests with access to unlimited calls and texts, recommendations for local attractions and direct communication with room service, and it can even be used as a room key.
