Seems counterintuitive for a new device when all of these kids have a cell phone, and most of these kids have a smartphone (or tablet now).

Wouldnt simple SaaS app work better, or even SMS or Twitter? Price point better, user provisioning eliminates one less thing to break

Roger, you make a good point. Smartphones are threatening all kinds of single function devices - Flips, GPS, even some medical devices. But in reverse, as we saw with multi-function printers there are often too complex or not as good as single function devices like scanners. The pendulum keeps swinging.
