Almost all kids these days either have their own mobile device, phone or tablets so, it comes as not much of a surprise when we heard Toys ‘R’ Us announce that they are ready to join the tablet race with their very own tablet (that has been designed with the little ones in mind) called Tabeo.
After spending considerable time discussing issues and preferred features for kids with parents and their developers, it has finally decided upon what they want on Tabeo, says Troy Peterson, Vice President of their Divisional Merchandise department. Suffice to say, upon its launch, there was incredible response from parents shown in the number of pre-orders for the product. What really stands out with Tabeo when compared to other conventional tablets is that Toys ‘R’ Us kept it kid-friendly and gave parents complete control over what they want and don’t want their kids to access on the internet on the device.
Tabeo also has an app store which will feature only kid-friendly apps and products and I am sure that there will be a strong team of people overlooking the availability and suitability of the apps there, to ensure control and quality.
Coming this October 2012, parents will be able to get their hands on Tabeo at the introductory price of $150 per pop. The product is a 7 inch tablet that is safe-to-drop too, knowing that the risk of dropping them is high, as compared to other tablets which are designed primarily for adults and more careful teenagers.
Parents can go in to the settings of the tablet and disallow up to twenty seven different types of content on the internet. They are set to categories so that it is easier to classify and stop the content from being accessed on the tablet.
The tablet also runs on Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and uses Wifi. In fact, the tablet can also sign in to Google Mobile which means that more than seven thousand different free apps can be downloaded into the tablet…for instance games that are available for Android.
The tablet comes pre-loaded with some popular kids games so, are you ready to make a grab for this tablet?
