Kid phone works as game controller, and more

Firefly Mobile is debuting a cellphone for the age 8 through 12 market.

The new FlyPhone has an electro-luminescent keypad that automatically morphs into a game controller. The phone includes a portable media player, camera, mobile games and texting ability. It has a software filter for downloading age-appropriate media. It also comes with software to let kids create their own ringtones, wallpaper and slide shows to load onto the phone.

The FlyPhone allows pay-as-you-go payments and does not require a contract. The unit will be available in October at retailers including Toys "R" Us, Kmart, Barnes & Noble's Web site, Ritz/Wolf Camera, Target and cellular carriers at a suggested retail price of $125. (info from TWICE)
