Samsung VP in UK, Simon Stanford made the official announcement.
“We’re seeing technology become ever more popular with children, and wanted to create a tablet that provides kids with interactive and educational content with the added benefit of giving parents control over their children’s tab use.”
“Parents played a huge part in the design process, and as a result the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids is a unique product that is both a fun and exciting piece of technology for kids to use and a device that parents can trust.”
The device features a 7-inch screen with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and draws power from 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM.
Samsung ships the kiddie slate pre-packed with a lot of fun games like Toca Train, Wipeout or Fruit Ninja and educational apps like Learn ABCs or Dolphin Reader. The Korean giant offers with the bundle a “C Pen” stylus to be used with drawing apps.
The kiddie slate arrives just in time for the kick start of the holiday shopping spree, but it will face a lot of competition from other newly launched tablets like Tesco’s Hudl, the Argos MyTablet or the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX.
