TABEO: a kids tablet made in Toys ‘R’ US

Toys “R” Us, one of the leading toy retailer in the US, has unveiled its own tablet computer specifically designed for kids, called “TABEO”.

The tablet has a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, a 7-inch display with 800×480 resolution, 4GB of built-in storage (that can handle up to 32GB with a micro SDHC card), a front facing camera, HDMI port to connect to a TV, and WIFI. The device also runs a custom UI especially designed for kids, which is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

 

For sure, Tabeo isn’t the most powerful tablet on the market, but it does feature built-in games, extra Internet safety parental controls and other features you’d want and expect in a tablet designed for your kids. Parents can limit the amount of time their kids can spend online, set access for specific days of the week or hours of the day, and can get e-mail alerts if their kids find a way around the limitations.

Over the past year, we’ve spent considerable time talking to parents and children to determine what features and functions they really want in a kids’ tablet, resulting in Tabeo,” said Troy Peterson, vice president and divisional merchandise manager for Toys R Us, U.S. operations.

Tabeo comes with 50 pre-installed free-apps that the retailer said it “carefully selected to entertain and educate children, while helping them explore the Internet.” The pre-loaded apps include nearly 20 games like Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Cut the Rope, Temple Run, 100 Floors, Collapse!, Tiki Golf, and Tiki Cart 3D.

     

The tablet also features nearly 10 apps to help kids learn about letters, math, science and other subjects. Software installed on Tabeo includes AlphaTots, Discovery Kids Putterbugs, Operation Math and TechCalc, along with five more learning apps.

Tabeo also comes with iStorybooks, Candy Factory and Little Red Riding Hood. Toys R Us is also launching an app store for Tabeo with more than 7,000 additional free apps.

The product became available for online pre-orders on Monday and is expected to be in Toys “R” Us stores on October 21st.  It will retail for a competitive price of $149.99.

    Thanks for the ideas you have contributed here. Something else I would like to say is that personal computer memory specifications generally rise along with other improvements in the know-how. For instance, if new generations of processor chips are brought to the market, there is usually a matching increase in the scale demands of all laptop or computer memory and also hard drive room. This is because the software operated by these processors will inevitably rise in power to use the new engineering.
