As our society takes a conquest into deepening and faster technology, younger generations are getting more than just a glimpse into computers, tablets, and phones. Children even in pre-school are discovering how to learn computers, and some first grade requirements list a USB drive for a necessary tool!
If you are fond of a “Children of the Corn” technology takeover, you might want to look at this new tablet by Fuhu. Announced a while back, the Nabi 2 is starting hit store shelves, and just like the original Nabi, it is designed for children.
You will not believe the specs on this thing either. Just imagine a child’s tablet being faster than the average one.
Here are some of the specs:
- A 1.3GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 A9 processor
- Micro SD-Card support
- 8GB of internal memory
- 7″ (1024×600) touchscreen display
- Mini-HDMI and Micro-USB ports
- 4,000 mAh battery
- And tasty 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich
The “kids” tablet does not come with the Google Play Store, but is rather sold with “App Zone”, which is a child friendly marketplace. Apparently the Play Store is not such a good idea for children to be introduced to, but a quad-core processor is, right?!
You will be able to pick this tablet up for $199 at Walmart, BestBuy, Target, Amazon, or Gamestop on July 22. Only a couple of days until your child has a faster piece of hardware than some of your devices.
Do you still think that this tablet is “kid-friendly”? Is the quad-core A9 processor needed? And how will this compete with the Nexus 7? I would love to hear your comments.
