Cellular phones which are capable of tracking children and monitoring their movements are being introduced by Motorola, according to Motorola Chairman and CEO Edward Zander. Motorola is the third largest manufacturer of cellular phones.
Cellular phones have become ever so much more than telephones of late. Referring to the ongoing convergence of technology, and how cellular phones now provide entertainment, Zander said “Mobile phones today are more like television when I was a kid,” adding that “there is a way to keep it secure.”
According to Zander, the new cellular phones will offer both a tracking capability, and carry software to censor content and obscene text.
Motorola marks the third entrant into the children’s cellular phone market. Earlier this month the Leapfrog Tic Talk and the Firefly cellular phones for children were introduced and, in fact, are already shipping.
