    This is obviously a fake. No baby would want to be seen with an outdated piece of technology like that. A baby would obviously go for a Palm Pre or maybe an iPhone.

    So how old do children have to be to earn a mobile device? My oldest daughter is 7 and she is probably one of the last ones in her classroom to get a phone. If I didn’t think she’d lose it I’d buy her an iPhone. Really! She already knows more about my iPhone than I do.

    Will our future children get their first phone when they are born? As a kind of welcome gift? What do you think?
