    NTT DOCOMO, INC. Japan's largest mobile network operator, has launched "Kids Keitai SH-03M", a new mobile phone especially for children. The devices produced by DOCOMO and SHARP use eSIM technology from G+D Mobile Security for their connectivity.

    The children mobile phone contains an embedded eSIM chip (eUICC) from G+D Mobile Security, which is equipped with mobile phone subscriptions from DOCOMO. As the phone is a pure eSIM device, it has only an embedded UICC without a plug-in SIM slot. The embedded SIM itself is soldered on the chip board. Advantages here are that the SIM card can not be lost or damaged. Moreover, the smaller the SIM, the less space it needs. Therefore, the size of the device can be made smaller and fit comfortably in the hands of children.
