    Samsung market phones for pre-teens

    Electronics giant Samsung are the latest company to completely ignore UK government advice and market a mobile phone designed explicitly for children, the S3030 Tobi. Following in the footsteps of the MyMo and Teddyfone controversies a few years ago, this is the first time a large corporation has publicly thrown its marketing weight behind a children’s phone. As scientific evidence that mobile phone use is causing a number of serious health issues from neurological effects all the way up to infertility and brain cancer, marketing these phones at youngsters between 4 and 8 years of age is hugely irresponsible. The fact it is also contradicting government advice on the subject is inexcusable.
