LeapFrog is offering middle schoolers a replacement for handwritten index cards, allowing them to enter data via virtual "cards" and run through them on the 2.5-inch screen. It is also a audio player, so kids can jam while they study. Vocabulary and flashcard questions are programmed in using a software interface.
Students can also download study aids for numerous subjects, or use the included language tools to automatically translate and pronounce words for study. While not the most advanced gadget, the $60 Crammer with 1GB flash memory, may encourage fun-study for young students. It will be out in Fall 2008.
