As the age of children when they receive their first cellphones becomes younger and younger, the benefits of a gadget like the BlackBerry Peer are all the more evident. There is little point in investing in an iPhone for a clumsy and forgetful twelve-year-old when the most exciting functions are found in this junior mobile phone.
Texting and calling capabilities are integrated into this handset by Felix Lorsignol, but its media specs are perhaps the most exciting. Young users can snap photos and record videos with the camera, and even apply filters for more artistic shots.
Parents will love the BlackBerry Peer. From their own RIM devices they can brows their child's pictures and access GPS technology to help them locate their wandering little ones.
