Kiddie Korner is a great idea. It was only a matter of time until it got implemented somewhere else. I sure hope that WP8 always stays a step ahead in this feature! Being first to do it is fine, but staying ahead of the crowd is what really matters.
LG piles on the software features for latest flagship, including 'Answer Me' and Guest Mode

I actually like the name "guest mode" better than "kids corner". I'm surprised Microsoft didn't use the name "guest mode" first. Guest mode sounds more like guest account on PCs.

Personally I only let my kids play with my phone. I don't lend it out to other adults. I like kids corner because my kids are the only other people that use my phone. My adult friends all have phones they can use. My kids are my kids not guest. Really, how many times have you lent your phone out to a "guest"?

Android has had support for multiple user profiles for quite some time, although Google has limited it to tablets only. One of the nicer elements with Android's implementation is that settings are not shared across profiles -- so each user/guest has their own email inbox/settings, own web browser history, and so forth.

Agree with the posts above that Guest Mode is a better name.
With a feature phone, you can have someone else borrow your phone for a quick phone call.
With a smartphone, you need to take some precautions, especially with WP8 with all of its baked in integration.
Was there any mention of enhancements to Kid's Korner in GDR3? I think GDR2 didn't bring anything new to it. Like using a different PIN for Kid's Corner vs main screen.
