Portable IM for kids

For parents whose children are constantly using instant messaging, the newly-revealed IM-Me by Mattel should offer some relief. Using an RF dongle that plugs into a PC's USB port, kids can take their messaging to virtually anywhere in a home, with the full benefits of a QWERTY keyboard and a widescreen LCD display. The IM-Me also offers additional security, since the only people who can send messages to the device are those pre-approved from the PC. Unfortunately for those seeking "masculine" colors, the model showing at this week's Toy Fair in New York comes only in purple. It's expected to debut sometime this summer for $65. [via Wired]
