With the Android tablet market becoming increasingly crowded, Toys R Us has decided to take a different approach and target children.
It may be difficult for some to imagine a kid-friendly tablet, but you can start by taking Android’s 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and stripping it to the bare bones so it becomes easier to navigate and operate. Next, preload the tablet with 50 assorted apps that are designed to engage, educate and entertain children. And finally, include a custom app store that offers thousands of additional programs that have been pre-screened to make sure they’re content and age appropriate.
For parents of tech-savvy toddlers, it’s a clever way to provide a safe Internet surfing environment and also get your kids to stop stealing your tablet to watch SpongeBob SquarePants cartoons.
The Tabeo is set to release in the U.S. on October 21st, 2012 and will be available exclusively at Toys R Us stores.
