If you're sick of your kid borrowing your iPad or Galaxy Note whenever they want to do some kiddie stuff, perhaps it's time to get them their own tablet. Toys"R"Us has recognized this opening, and has introduced the Tabeo just for the younger set.
The Tabeo, running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, isn't exactly gong to embarrass an iPad with its 7-inch screen, 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor and just 1GB of RAM, but that's not the aim of this kid-friendly tablet.
More importantly, it comes pre-loaded with over 50 kid targeted games and educational apps, just the thing to keep boredom at bay during those long car trips. Battery life is claimed to be around ten hours, dropping to seven hours when playing video.
Far from being a totally stripped down machine, the Tabeo comes loaded with two cameras, and connects to the outside world with Wi-Fi. It also has an HDMI port and an SD card slot. Online safety was a key design goal, so the Tabeo comes pre-loaded with parent-adjustable website blocking software, and remote access feature that lets a parent shut control the tablet from their own device.
The Tabeo will be available in October for $150,
