The Cam1 from Spainâ€™s toy-maker Imaginarium is also a phone. Itâ€™s a mobile phone for kids. Notice the interface: it doesnâ€™t have the usual cellphone keypad. You know why?
Parental control is why. Theyâ€™re just kids, and you gotta have control on who calls them and who they can call. Itâ€™s you, the parent, who makes a pre-determined contact list through a web-based interface. Outgoing and incoming calls, including text messages are limited to the pre-approved list that you make.
You know what else is good about this 2Mp camera phone? Itâ€™s got a locator feature, not to location-stamp the photos, but to enable parents to locate the phone by GPRS triangulation.
Imaginarium will formally launch the Cam1 (Cam Uno, I suppose) at Barcelonaâ€™s 3GSM trade show next week.
