Kids and cell phones

CNET ran an article yesterday about the average age of children owning a cell phone and apparently last year it was eight! Eight year old kids with cell phones. Even better yet, they expect that this year the average age will drop down to five years old. For those who are worried about kids wasting all the minutes and getting huge fees, there are features that allow the parents to control the amount of calling and text messaging the kids can do. So I'd like to turn this into a discussion on our blog and ask all of you of your oppinion. Is this too much? Where is that limit? I mean according to this, I should go and buy a cell phone for my little sister now because she's already a year behind! Here is the original CNET article.

I guess that's one of the downsides of technology being so affordable for almost every pocket nowadays...I remember 10 yrs. ago about those "brick" phones lol.
