WSJ Personal Tech Tonguing the Batteries- Zing!

This Story comes from the Personal Tech column by Walt Mossberg at the Wall Street Journal.

from the story

"A new company, Firefly Mobile Inc., has introduced a small, colorful,
cellphone that fits comfortably into the hands of kids aged 8 through 12, and is greatly simplified so kids can easily use it. But the phone is also designed to strictly limit what the kids can do with it and to give parents control.

Among other things, Firefly has a 911 button on its side for emergencies and its battery isn't removable because, according to the company's CEO, kids put their
tongues on batteries.


I know I did that. FYI 9-Volt batteries work best.

Should an age group who puts their tongues on batteries really be allowed to have their own cell phones?
