Kajeet Introduces New Handset Lineup and Expanded Retail Locations For Holiday Season
Kajeet announces the latest handsets in its growing line of phones for tweens and teens: the ultra-sleek SANYO Katana® II, as well as the stylish Samsung m300, which recently made its debut. This holiday season, families can find kajeet at more than 3000 select retail locations nationwide including: Best Buy, Target, Toys “R” Us, Longs Drugs and Limited Too, as well as online at kajeet.com.
Whether calling, texting, instant messaging or picture messaging, kids will love these phones that come packed with the features they want most: flip-phone styling, a camera, fashion colors and much more. And, the kajeetâ pay-as-you-go service ensures that there are never any surprise bills. Kids and parents get a simple and affordable rate plan, along with easy-to-use tools that help them determine who pays for what; who can or cannot call or text the phone; and, what time of day the phone can and can’t be used.
“These exciting new handsets validate the unique position kajeet has carved out in the highly competitive cell phone industry,” said Daniel Neal, kajeet CEO and founder. “A cell phone is at the very top of many kids’ holiday wish lists and they’re looking for sleek, full-featured phones with all the bells and whistles. Our newest handsets offer all the features that kids want, while our service continues to meet the needs of tweens and their families in ways that no other cell phone company today can. And, our expanding retail presence makes it convenient and easy for families to purchase kajeet phones and refill cards for holiday gifts.”
“Parents often have real concerns about getting their kids a cell phone,” adds Neal. “As a parent, I completely understand those concerns. That is precisely why we created kajeet, a cell phone service built from a kid’s point of view that’s right for kids and supported by parents.”
