VTech full fledged Android tablet for kids

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, November 12, 2014

VTech’s full fledged Android tablet for kids.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   When it comes to using tablets, kids can get pretty spoiled after getting their hands on an iPad or Android tablet that belongs to mom or dad.   And so VTech’s latest tablet for kids, the Innotab Max, is designed to be a lot more grown up as far as the technology is concerned.  Director of Marketing Jennifer Eiselein…

“The main difference is that it’s adapting the Android operating system.  And what that means for kids is their going to have a faster processing speed, a capacitive touch screen, so it’s going to feel like an Android tablet.  It’s going to play faster and react faster.  It also is going to give them access to a select number of curated Android apps, educator endorsed.  So things like Toca Boca, that they are very well known.”

And there are other built in parental safeguards.   The Innotab Max is priced at 109.99.    You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
