And with Google Play offering over 60,000 Fremium games including all the major gaming houses the kids will have hours and hours of gaming fun, whilst giving parents keep control over what their kids do on the net by way of a ‘Trust and Verify’ approach, with a propriety notification function called ‘Remote Trust,’ that lets parents set up and view their child’s activity.
Of course parents also worry about the bills attached to such devices, and as such MG has partnered with BillMyParents, to deliver an integrated ‘digital wallet’ functionality with the MG that enables a parent to load up a specific reloadable debit account for their teens.
