AT&T Wants To Give Your Dog A Sim Card

From I4U.com

AT&T has partnered with location-tracking specialist Apisphere to create a dog collar with an embedded SIM card so that you’ll never lose your dog again. Users simply snap the collar on their dog, and then can set up a “geo-fence” that enables alerts to be sent whenever the pooch goes too far. And of course, the dog can be tracked at any time through the use of specialized software.

Because it’s using SIM technology, users can also set up a list of contacts, all of whom can be notified if there are any red flags raised about the dog’s current location. The location will be specific down to the street level.

“There are few things as important to my daughter as knowing the whereabouts of our dog. The peace of mind that a wirelessly connected collar will bring my family and pet owners across the country is long overdue,” said president of AT&T’s Emerging Devices division, Glenn Lurie.

The “smart” dog collar will be available later this year. Pricing and distribution details were not announced.

I think this is a great idea but AT&T should make it a free family service.
