With the new iPad hitting the markets, more and more people are transitioning to the pad-mania. At the same time, more tabs are being innovated with various positive aspects in mind. One that is standing out among the crowd is the accessibility for kids and teens. However, concerned parents are anxious over the educational value, functionality, and safeness of the tablets. On the other hand, kids and teens are more apt to be taken into the wave if the tablet fulfills their entertainment requests. Taking these into mind, Techno Source has created the Kurio 7 Tablet to apply requests from parents and their younger tag-alongs.
The new Kurio 7 tablet is described by Techno Source as the “kid-friendly tablet that doesn’t cut out useful features.” It features a single core, 1-GHz Cortex A8 CPU, a memory of 512 MB of RAM, storage of 4GB, a micro SD card slot, Wi-Fi b/g/n, HDMI out, a front-facing camera for Skype, and a USB port. The tablet is accessible to the Android market without the ads, microtransactions, and inappropriate content. Access the web can be limited by parents by enabling them to filter out sites that they deem unsuitable for their young ones. While the tablet may not be as powerful as the Kindle Fire or iPad, it is a major step tablet-wise for kids and teens who are just inching for a tablet but are not yet ready.
Beating out Fuhu Nabi on Android version, Vinci Tab on price and design, and the LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer on usefulness over the single digits, the Kurio 7 is definitely one to keep an eye on.
At a price of $199, the 7-inch Kurio 7* includes:
• 1-GHz Cortex A8 CPU
• Memory of 512 MB of RAM
• 4 GB storage
• Micro SD card slot
• Wi-Fi b/g/n
• HDMI out
• Front-facing camera
• USB port
• Parent-control on Android Market and web access
*8- and 10-inch will also be available on the market this year.
