Polaroid's rugged Android Tablet for Kids

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, March 21, 2013

A ruggedized Android tablet designed for kids.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It has built in bumpers to protect it from drops, runs the Jelly Bean version of Android and is loaded with apps that kids will love right out of the box.  Polaroid’s hundred fifty dollar Kids’ Tablet is out and says CEO Scott Hardy….

“As we listened to our consumers it became apparent that they’re looking for something  that can give their kids the magic of having a tablet,  but doing it in a way that is safe and protected.  And so we’ve done several things to it in making it an educational tool, installed right out of the box, Dr. Seuss books as well as some Smithsonian books right there on the tablet and then it also has an Internet safe browser.”

Parents can control what kids have access to but can turn off the blocks for their own use to get to the app store, for instance.   It’s lacking a high res screen and fast processor, but  the Polaroid Tablet for Kids offers good entertainment value and peace of mind.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
