CyCell launches OwnFone UK

CyCell has launched OwnFone, an MVNO targeting (but not exclusively) the worrying parents of children who need a phone but neither need or can be trusted with an expensive all out offer. The phones on offer are palm size and slim with the added benefit of being pre-programmed with a maximum of 12 numbers each of which gets its own button naming the call receiver. The idea is to provide a reduced risk handset to children and those who only want calling in an emergency. There is no texting and no Internet facility.
