Polaroid introduced a white 7-inch tablet specifically designed for children, featuring the Android 4.0 OS, a 1GHz processor, 8GB of internal memory, 512MB of RAM, USB port and an SD card slot for extended memory. The tablet has rear rubber bumpers to protect it from shocks, falls and withstands all sorts of liquid accidents. The capacitive multi-touch display has an 800 by 480-pixel resolution for a sharp picture. Power up the video player and use the Baby Switch feature to disable the touch display of the tablet, preventing little ones from stopping the safe and filtered stream of children’s video entertainment. The 2-megapixel camera allows children to be creative with pictures and videos and share them with friends and family.
The tablet is simple for parents to setup, includes a safe web browser for kids developed by the world-leading browser company Maxthon and parental controls to program a safe environment for children, yet still provide a real tablet experience. Other features includes a music studio that offers many fun options to create audio and music, (16) super fun games for boys and girls, an animated screensaver with lullabies programmed to help children fall asleep while the tablet is charging in its dock and a drawing app to provide children with hours of creative fun and “one-touch” wallpaper changing. A digital accelerometer, built-in speaker, headphone jack, microphone and rechargeable battery are also included.
Fun and Games
Included are a customized suite of apps like Kids Cam, Music Studio and Draw that encourage children to develop creative capabilities, and show off their creative side to friends and family members with videos, pictures and songs. The tablet also features Kids Vids, an app that allows children to stream safe and filtered videos for all age groups and Free Play, a simple & unique way to display all the free games/apps available for download from the kid-friendly App Shop.
Safe, Tough and Durable
Equipped with innovative side and rear bumpers to help protect the tablet from accidental bumps as well as built-in parental controls and a safe web browser that are quick and easy to set up, the tablet is designed to provide a safe interactive experience. Also included is the exclusive App Shop which is loaded with a variety of free and paid kid-friendly apps. The tablet even features a display lock, which locks the tablet’s display and buttons, allowing young children to enjoy videos or interactive books without interruption.
Reading options for children of all ages!
The Polaroid kids tablet comes preloaded with a selection of top-rated interactive children’s books, as well as NOOK for Android from Barnes and Noble. The tablet includes award-winning Dr. Seuss and Smithsonian interactive books which offer kids three different ways to read – “Read to me” where you listen to the book with the words highlighted, “Read it myself” where you read the book in its traditional form, and “Auto-Play” where the book plays like a movie, automatically reading and turning the pages. It also features top-rated learning apps that children will have fun with as they learn their numbers, letters and much more.
