Walt Disney launched a new mobile phone service last week that promises to put parents in control of their children’s phone usage.
Disney Mobile allows parents to regulate when, how long, and with whom children use their cell phones. It also blocks kids from using the phone until they respond to messages that have been flagged as urgent. There is even a built in satellite tracking feature that will help locate the cell phone in the event of an emergency.
Individual plans range from $39.99 to $169.99 a month. Family plans start at $159 a month and max out at $249 per month.
Phones are available for $59.99 with a 2 year service agreement.
This move will undoubtedly be a good one for Disney as cell phone products aimed at children are becoming big buisness. With the trusted Disney name behind the project, it is easy to see how they might be able to dominate the market.
