Android tablet for kids heading to Toys R Us
posted by Ian M. / Nov 10, 2011, 10:19 AM
The Nabi isn’t the first computer-esque device created for kids but it is certainly one of the most advanced. Toys R Us has teamed up with an application developing company known as FUHU that is known for developing an array of education applications.
The Nabi features a 7-inch display. It is powered by a dual-core 533MHz processor and comes with 4GB of internal storage. You can web browse on this tablet and you can even playback video in full 1080p HD. There is front facing camera so the little tykes can take photos of themselves or video chat with their Nabi-packing friends up the street.
Pre-loaded on this tablet is the Nabi App Store which will give the kids access to over 500 child-oriented applications. The tablet will also be able to give children access to the Fooz Kids University which is a program that will help them with more than 22,000 math problems. There are also a bunch of creative, interactive and e-book type apps on the tablet to take advantage of.
For all the parents out there, a password can be entered into the Nabi that can allow it to be used as a fully operational Android tablet. So it really offers a little fun for everyone.
All in all the Nabi sounds like a pretty attractive holiday gift. It seems to offer a nice mix of fun while helping educating the little ones. They are up for pre-order now for the cost of $200 at Toys R Us. The Nabi is expected to ship the first week of December, insuring that you have it in time for the holidays. Is anybody going to consider picking up a Nabi?

Are you kidding me? Companies in China and India can make crappy tablets for $50 to $70. The problem is that the iPad distorted the consumers' perception of a tablet. I did a quick search and the first hit was this site: http://www.eglobalelectronics.
Buy 5 and each tablet is $95 and just look at the spec.

Why do people complain about the price then buy their kids Xbox 360s to playBlackOps and stuff like that

It seems like a great product, except after the $200 this thing is going to become expensive from the app downloads. i think id rather have some sort of windows tablet that I can install free software on. I already spent a bunch of money on ipad apps, i dont want to fork over more for my kids !! Does anyone know of any good windows tablets? i found the intel based tablet from kid computers but the specs seem kind of outdated, thoughts?http://kidcomputers.com/buy/Ki

I was surprised at how many different options there are for kids tablets. If you don't believe me, check this link out:http://www.besttabletsforkids.com/most-popular/the-top-5-best-tablets-for-kids/ There are plenty of options spanning from basic, educational content, to the Nabi (as you have reviewed in this article) that, as your say, connect with the android marketplace.
