The Android 4.0 slate will feature a 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. Archos says the Child Pad will also feature “a compact light weight design”. From the image, it appears to sport a rugged plastic bezel to protect it from drops, but, to our pleasant surprise, it looks very appealing considering the target audience.
There is no additional information available yet on what type of ports or storage this tablet will have, but on the software side, Ice Cream Sandwich has been modified to sport a colorful, kid-friendly skin, stronger parental controls, and some pre-loaded games. Of course one of the games will be Angry Birds, but if your little one needs to feed their app addiction, the Child Pad will feature AppLibs Kids App Store, which has access to over 10,000 apps including games, entertainment, communication, multimedia, books, comics, and sports.
You’ll be able to pick one of these up for your mini-me or yourself at the end of March for $129.
