    9 year old gets Pearl for Xmas

    Advertisement



    Just saw a kid with her mom in the mall getting the Pearl from VZW. All I can say is wow. I watched as she turned it over a couple of times and said, "I wonder how I can text from this...". This BB will be gone in less than a month, her mom added: "remember not to use it to text anyone while your in class...". Starting them off young is good I guess but geez, when I was 9 I lost a WHOLE BICYCLE in the desert.

    At 9 I would have so taken a pearl apart just to see how it worked. More than likley breaking it for good.

    Kids these days...

    I don't think it's a good idea for so young a child to have unrestricted, unmonitored access to the internet. And a camera on it? Oy. Good luck to that family.

    WOW...well most parents don't seem to care too much about Cell Phones and then new age of technology, they're so used to living without all of the new and available software and technological advances that a cheap camera phone will do for them, I'm sure that the parent doesn't even know what the phone is ACTUALLY FOR.....I blow my moms mind everytime I show her something new on my phone!! she's like "What the hell...how did you get your phone to do that?"....

    Sorry, but that isn't going to convince me. I'm a parent and although my Son is older and has his own phone, if he was 9 years old I would not buy him a BB. That is simply too young to appreciate the value of the device. Kids these days are simply given too many things without learning to appreciate the true value of them.

    Absolutely agree. but I look at this device as a perfect opportunity for the kid to learn a lot of things. _IF_ he is really interested and it was _his_ idea to get it.
