kajeet(TM) Adds Longs Drugs as Retailer for First Pay-As-You-Go Cell Phone Service Created Just for Tweens

BETHESDA, Md., May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- kajeet(TM), the new pay-as-you-go cell phone and wireless service made from a kid's point of view, announced today a distribution deal that expands retail availability for kajeet to more than 400 Longs Drugs stores in California, Nevada and Hawaii.

"kajeet strives to thoughtfully serve kids and their families with a wireless service tailored just for their needs," said Chris Storbeck, Senior Vice President of Sales at kajeet "Those same families rely on local drugstores like Longs Drugs when they shop for practical items, necessities and gifts. This relationship now delivers the kajeet service to those very neighborhoods where kids and parents are discussing the role that mobile technology plays in their families' lives.

"We recognize that more and more tweens want cell phones, and that parents and kids are discussing the hard questions about them," Storbeck added. ":What are the limits and rules? How much access should kids have? How much money can they responsibly manage? kajeet wants to facilitate those conversations among kids and parents and recognizes that they often occur during the routine of daily life, perhaps even during a run to the neighborhood drugstore."

Under the agreement, kajeet is offering the colorful LG LX150 phone at Longs Drugs. This handset blends flip-phone styling and Bluetooth capability with kajeet customization features and a price that pleases any budget (suggested retail: $49.99) -- a great choice for kids and families looking for value, style and a service created just for them. kajeet refill cards for the pay-as-you-go wireless service can be purchased at Longs Drugs, too.

With a full array of voice, text and instant messaging services that allow on-the-go kids to stay connected to family and friends, kajeet also provides kids with ample opportunities to communicate in their own style with ringtones, games and wallpapers of unique interest to them. For parents, kajeet offers considerable economic comfort: no long-term contracts, no activation or termination fees, no hidden charges, no roaming or extra long distance fees and no big surprises. The kajeet Configurator sweetens the deal for both kids and parents with features such as TimeManager and WalletManager that offer numerous ways for tweens and their families to tailor the service to meet their specific needs.

The kajeet service and phones can also be found nationwide in Best Buy and Limited Too stores, and on the Web at http://www.kajeet.com/. For additional product and service details, please visit http://www.kajeet.com/ or dial kajeet Customer Care at 1-866-4kajeet (1-866-452-5338).

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
