Kid-friendly Toshiba 812T

Japanese carrier Softbank is now supporting the Toshiba 812T, a cellphone designed specifically for children, writes Mobile Magazine. The clamshell phone comes in blue or pink, and has the notable feature of an emergency tab, which (when pulled) will automatically notify specific contacts of a child's location, relying on a built-in GPS receiver. A buzzing sound is meant to deter potential threats. The phone is also described as 3G, permitting features such as WCDMA video calls, and comes equipped with a microSD slot as well as a three megapixel camera. Softbank has yet to share information on prices and possible distribution points outside Japan.
