LONDON, 2017-Sep-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carphone Warehouse is proud to announce it will be the exclusive UK retailer of monqi®, an innovative new mobile platform guaranteed to be a hit with children and parents alike. monqi will be available from early October and customers can register their interest now at Carphone Warehouse.
monqi is a fully featured Android handset with high end features and a sleek design that will appeal to kids. But, thanks to the unique monqi operating system and remote app, it is also designed to appeal to parents who are looking to stay in control while helping their child develop their independence. And unlike other phones on the market, it’s easier to get started with monqi as parental controls are part of the phone’s operating system and cannot be deleted or turned off.
Frederik Albrechtsen, from monqi said: “monqi was founded on the belief that we need clever mobile solutions for children. It’s inevitable that children will want to use technology, with monqi parents can help their kids to navigate the digital waters safely and set boundaries to promote healthy phone habits from the start. Receiving the Mumsnet Rated accreditation means that parents don’t just have to take our word for it, they can be confident that the phone has been tested by real parents and children with positive results.”
“Deciding when to give your children their first mobile phone can be tricky, with parents having to balance pester power, peer pressure and the actual needs of their children to make those first steps towards independence,” said Andrew Wilson, Buying Director at Carphone Warehouse. “monqi can make this difficult decision easier by combining high end features you’d find on any smartphone with a comprehensive suite of parental controls and we think our customers with young children will love it.”
Using the monqi app, available on their own Android or iOS devices, parents can:
- Approve, and add/edit contacts
- Approve and manage all apps and downloads
- Limit app use, calls, texts and data usage
- Connect safely to internet both when out and about or on WiFi
- Set a schedule so phone features and apps can be limited at specific times of day
- Set geo-fencing and be notified when the child leaves or enters or zone
- Lock and remotely lock the phone- especially useful if the phone is lost
Meanwhile children will love the high end features of the monqi phone including the Jungle Store, where they can access the all latest titles including YouTube and popular games:
- Android 6.0 and monqi OS
- 5.0″ HD Display
- 13MP rear camera with auto focus and flash and 5.0MP front camera and flash
- Up to 7 hours talk time
- Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
- 1.5 GHZ Quad Core Processor with 8GB ROM and 1GB RAM, up to 32GB Micro SD
monqi has been awarded ‘Mumsnet Rated’ which means the product has undergone testing by a panel of real parents and children who in turn have then recommended to other mums.
monqi will be exclusively available at Carphone Warehouse from early October and customers can register their interest in finding out more at here.
