We'd love to say that Samsung has completed a new tablet and that said tablet is available worldwide, but we can only say that the former is true, since sales haven't started yet, and won't for a while.
Not that everyone will be upset over it. After all, many people still feel that electronic devices like phones and tablets aren't the sort of thing that kids should be exposed to.
But we're getting ahead of ourselves. First we may as well say what exactly Samsung has put together.
As reported by Korean website Moveplayer, Samsung is almost ready to launch the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids SM-T2105 tablet.
The product will sell in a variety of colors, with a protective cover that will save it from damage in case it is accidentally dropped.
We all know how clumsy kids can be, and the tendency of some to throw things around or smash them just to see if the items can live through it. The cover will help. Not too much, but it will help.
The other reason why drops will be possible for the tablet to survive is the size of the tablet. The Galaxy Tab 3 Kids SM-T2105 is a 7-inch slate, so it's not as heavy as other slates.
That said, by now people will have begun to suspect exactly what the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids SM-T2105 actually is.
Long story short, it is the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Wi-Fi loaded with kid-friendly software and renamed for that purpose.
There are various games and other recreational programs installed on it, and the “desktop” themes are different as well.
As for hardware, it revolves around a 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM CPU. Samsung included 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB NAND Flash storage, a 3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a 4000mAh battery. The LCD has a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels.
Everything is handled by the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. Presumably, the price remains at $200 / €200.
