It’s thin, which makes it easy to carry. It’s best feature is the fact that it’s a tablet/smart phone, which enables new parents to do even more than ever before.

Nokia…it takes me back to my days as a teenager with my first phone. One the size of a small VW. Fortunately, this new phone is a bit more tech-savvy and current; and it’s great for new parents. The camera is stellar, which makes it perfect for photos of your gorgeous new little one. However, beware that it doesn’t have as much storage capacity as other phones, which means you’ll want to back up and store your photos ASAP so you always have room for more.
