Those looking at the latest phones for their kids may be inspired by a new device from O2.
It has been announced by the network operator that a new gadget will soon be available that is targeted at providing a communications device that is focussed on learning.
The carrier unveiled details of the O2 Xda Flint this week, claiming that it could be used to play a significant role in education by allowing users to access e-books, digital applications and virtual learning environments.
It is also noted that the system lets students make notes, read or review documents and is operated on a Microsoft Windows platform.
Also on-board the Xda Flint is a five-inch touch screen, Bluetooth 2.0, quad-band Wi-Fi and HSDPA, a three-megapixel camera with autofocus, mp3 and video playback.
Commenting on the launch, O2's business sales director Ben Dowd said: "This device is perfect for students and teachers who need to stay in the loop while on the move or away from their learning environment."
The network recently announced its support for Ofcom plans to better regulate mobile broadband providers' internet speed claims.
