Yep, we did it. We got the boys new phones for Christmas. In fact, we are so cool we let them design their own phones from scratch.
It's got all the standard keys. A big OK button. I am not sure what a "sift" key is. I can only hope that it goes through all the stuff that's important, finds none, and shuts the whole thing down. That's just a guess.
Let's flip it over:
I can't say if that is a very slick, personalized, falling-water-themed skin, or, if it's another screen. Either is pretty cool.
This is the front of Zack's:
Sort of an unorthodox approach to number sequence, but, hey, I'm old-school.
He's got what I can only assume are hotkeys on the sides:
I am pretty sure I want a "specker" key, it makes people explode when they are being dicky... nevermind, I made that up.
Here's the one he'll wear out:
Games, just games.
You might remember from the posts Com(paper)puters and The Paper Arts that they are not strangers to the challenges of cutting-edge twenty-first century design:

I see some kids my boys' age with cell phones. You know what? When I was a kid all adults smoked, but, even then the grownups had the sense not to give a second or third grader a lit cigarette. We had to make do with candy cigarettes that blew little puffs of powdered sugar, and Pixie sticks. I think for now I'll just let my kids pretend a little while longer. I don't want to hand them a lit cigarette.
From Marci's '... things you don't expect to hear from the backseat ...'
Z: "Why would you want to see a movie called Less Marbles?"
M: "It is pronounced Les Miserables."
Z: "Oh ... so then what is it about?"
M: "Um, well, people fighting in France."
B: "And they sing."
N: "They sing?"
M&B: "Yes, they sing."
Z: "Marbles would be better."
Singing marbles would hold my interest longer than that musical ever did...
