Announcement posted by G-mee 13 Jan 2021
The G-mee range, consisting of the G-mee Plus smart player and G-mee Connect smartphone, is an Australian innovation created to support the safe exploration of smart technology by young users.
G-mee offers all the features desired for on-the-go-entertainment and removes digital temptations. With no digital camera and a built-in G-mee App Lock, G-mee is already being recognised as the smart device to satisfy both parent and child needs.
The G-mee Connect is the smartphone model of the range and offers access to Google mobile services such as Google Play and YouTube, as well as 4G cellular connectivity. This device facilitates phone calls, SMS and the use of data for browsing and downloading content anytime.
Like all G-mee devices, the G-mee Connect comes with a built-in App Lock to ensure users only access age appropriate content. The smartphone also enables download of a free Call Manager App, giving parents the ability to disallow calls from specific numbers at specific times of the day.
G-mee creator, Australian tech expert and father of three daughters, Charlie Brown, says the partnership with Australia Post will make safe smart technology accessible to more users.
“One of the key things we’ve learned from the events of 2020, is that smart devices are now a necessity. So too is having an awareness of keeping safe online,” Mr Brown explains.
“We launched G-mee online last year and our online sales show great promise. Parents are seeing the benefits of G-mee for their kids’ digital use and are telling their friends. Now it’s time to take G-mee to another level.”
“We’re excited to offer G-mee Connect smartphones through participating Australia Post outlets nationally. Aussie families will now be able to find a smartphone option to help keep kids safe online at participating Australia Post outlets so they can stay connected once they return to school in 2021.”
“Australia Post outlets across the country have evolved to become more than just a place to send letters and packages. Now they are also regarded as a source for quality technology and gadgets at a reasonable price point.”
“The G-mee Connect smartphone is all about giving everyday Australian families an affordable device option that prioritises online safety for young users. Our products give parents the ability to curate the content their child engages with, to help guide and educate them about safely using smart technology to become informed users into the future.”
The G-mee Connect is available at participating Australia Post outlets nationally for $149.

The range of G-mee smart devices is the brainchild of respected technology expert, Charlie Brown of CBN Media. Charlie created the G-mee range after he and his wife realised that there wasn’t a device on the market that they could give their three young daughters and be assured that the content they were consuming was appropriate. G-mee smart devices give users, of all levels of digital savvy, access to the best on-the-go entertainment, while including features to support safe cyber use and exploration. There are two devices in the G-mee range including the G-mee Plus smart player and G-mee Connect smartphone.
