Among the tablets announced yesterday by Amazon we also have the Fire HD Kids Edition, a slate designed for kids just as its name unveils to us. Even if until now on the market we saw a couple of such devices for kids, these ones were cheap and under-powered, features that Amazon seems to fix them.


The Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition comes in two different versions, with either a 6-inch HD display, or with a 7-inch HD panel. We also get a quad-core processor, front and rear-facing cameras, Dolby Digital Audio technology and many other geeky stuff that for a kid aren’t very useful in terms of comparison.


This tablet brings in the package a lot of apps and games and a special one-year subscription for “FreeTime Unlimited”, a service that provides over 5000 kid-friendly books, movies, TV-shows, games and educational apps. There’s also a parental control so we can block some features that we don’t want our kid to use. The price for the 6-inch model will be $149, while the 7-inch one will be available for a $189 price tag.
