Disney offers teen-tracker mobile [BBC]
Disney is launching a US service that will enable parents to monitor how their children use their mobile phones.
They will be able to track voice, text, video and picture messages and set limits on their children’s calls.
The phone will also allow parents to locate where their children are via a global positioning system.
The entertainment giant hopes to target what is a niche but rapidly expanding market of mobile phone using children between 10 and 15 years old.
