November 2005 | Vol. IV - No. 11
Firefly Mobile launched the first-ever cell phone designed to meet the needs of kids and their parents in March 2005. The phone has only five buttons on the face; one each for Mom and Dad, one for the phone book, and one each to answer and hang up. There’s no way to surf the ‘Net, download a new ring tone every day or take pictures. With no keypad for numbers, there’s no opportunity for text-messaging.The TicTalk from enfora is similar to the Firefly Mobile: no keypad and a few simple buttons. TicTalk, unlike Firefly Mobile, has learning games from LeapFrog, suitable for children from first through the sixth grades. Children earn reward minutes for playing the educational games. It made the Toys "R" Us 2005 Joy list.
