If you’re looking for a tablet for your kid, you may just want to give the Lexibook slate a try. This device is coming to USA from next month and the price is supposed to be pretty close to the Lexibook First version available in Europe. I’m talking about $237 here, a tad pricey if you’ve heard about the Nexus 7 before.
The device offers a 600 MHz processor, 256 MB RAM, 4 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and parental control. To that we add WiFi 802.11 b/g and Android 2.2 Froyo, so don’t expect much on the OS side. There will be a preview launch at Toys R Us stores all over the nation and the official debut will take place on September 15th. The educational content on board involves 500 sheet of general education info, tests and quizzes.
There are School Zone apps and 200 preloaded ebooks to have fun with and learn from. Stories, rhymes, Susie Tallman’s top songs and karaoke videos, everything a child needs to develop and learn is available here. 25 games and 52 discovery activities are bundled, as well as a camera with photo editing software. There’s also a specific app store for this slate: LexiBook Market, including apps like Pig Rush, games like Angry Birds and more.
