Motorola to ship child tracking phone

Motorola's CEO Ed Zander noted to journalists Wednesday that his company plans on bringing out a mobile phone that will allow parents to keep close tabs on their children.

While parents need to adapt to the emerging youth culture surrounding mobile phones, adults are right to be concerned about what their kids are listening to, watching and reading, he said.

To meet those concerns, the Schaumburg, Ill.-based company is planning models that would inform parents of their children's whereabouts and carry censorship software, he said.
No time frame was given.
