STOCKHOLM (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
Tinitell (http://tinitell.com), a Swedish mobile technology startup, enters the market with a wearable mobile phone. The project is now live on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/960748838/tinitell-introducing-a-wristphone-for-kids.
Parents are sometimes reluctant to give their kids expensive smartphones, but many feel they still have to. Mats Horn, the founder and inventor of Tinitell, decided to create a wearable and well-designed wristphone for kids with GPS positioning.
"We’re not trying to create the most advanced mobile phone in the world. We wanted Tinitell to be super-small, light, highly durable, radiation safe and most of all — easy to operate for our youngest. And at the same time offer parents some well-deserved peace of mind," says Mats Horn, founder and CEO of Tinitell.
Tinitell is operated through the click of a button or via voice recognition. The more advanced features can be operated easily through the accompanying Tinitell smartphone app for parents, which can also be used to geo-locate one or several kids.
"Wearable technology is here to stay, but few big name companies have chosen to target kids and their parents. With Tinitell, we have created a wearable mobile phone with GPS-locator capabilities. The early market response has been incredible and many parents have told us that this is a type of product they have been looking for," says Mats Horn.
Tinitell comes in a variety of colors and the expected retail price is $179, but on crowdfunding site Kickstarter, the price starts at $99. The design is created by a team of Scandinavian industrial designers, and is also made to appeal to grown-ups who seek a basic wristphone for rugged outdoor activities.
