AT&T to be the Exclusive Network Provider for New Filip 2
LAS VEGAS, Sept. 8, 2014 – AT&T and Filip Technologies announced today an exclusive agreement to provide AT&T connectivity for FiLIP 2. The wearable smart locator for kids will offer several improvements to the wristband, an encased screen, a redesigned mobile app for parents, and four new colors. The wristband has been re-engineered to be resizable and can be worn open or closed. These features give parents peace of mind and allow them to adjust the band as their child grows. Availability at AT&T stores and www.att.com will be announced at a later date.
“The FiLIP 2 is built to be even more flexible so that it grows along with the child using it,” said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, Emerging Devices, AT&T Mobility. “FiLIP 2 is unique because it’s the only wearable device with standalone voice and text capabilities intended for children. It allows parents to stay connected with their child, while still giving them space to be kids.”
Additionally, AT&T announced that they would lower the price of the original FiLIP to $99.99, effective September 12, 2014 and valid until FiLIP 2 is made available for purchase.
