Not only Archos, Samsung and LG are making tablets for kids, but also the brand Fuhu. They announced the nabi 2 and nabi XD tablets month ago and now the products are getting their first major updates.


The software is rolling over the air and in case you’re wondering, the nabi 2 was announced in June last year. It’s a 7 inch slate that comes in bright red, with a rubbery case and interface designed with toddlers in mind. The nabi XD came in December and it’s more about the older tween age group, packing a 10.1 inch display and a suite of productivity apps.

Games are also part of the picture and both models run on quad core Tegra 3 CPUs, so that means they’re reasonably powerful. Fuhu recently released an update for both the nabi 2 and nabi XD, that keeps Android at versions 4.0 and 4.1, while introducing new features. The nabi XD gets a nabi Launcher, that allows users to customize the homescreen to dynamically change depending on the location or time of day. The nabi 2 now features Time Controls that let parents set time limits and rewards for using the slate.

Both models get the NOOK for nabi app, allowing access to over 5,500 book titles. The update requires at least 1 GB of free storage on the nabi 2 and 1.5 GB on the nabi XD.
