+ - DoCoMo readying smartphone for kids that blocks Google ->

Submitted by alphadogg
alphadogg (971356) writes "NTT DoCoMo is launching a new educational Android phone for Japanese children, but the kids will have to wait to learn about Google.
The "Smartphone for Juniors," made by Sharp, will only be able to access applications offered through a DoCoMo portal. The Google Play application store, along with apps such as Google Maps and Gmail, will not be usable, though kids can surf the Internet if their parents allow. DoCoMo says the phone is aimed at "upper elementary and junior high school students" and is offering it in a youthful color collection of blue, pink and white. It includes filters for calls, mails, and Internet access, as well as length and time of use."
