In addition to launching the nabi Jr. earlier this month, the US electronics company Fuhu is now adding another device, called nabi XD, to its line-up of tablets. The slate PC for tweens is based on an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and has a 3-D UI on top that apparently offers a “tiled grid of dynamically updating gadgets”. Users will be able to choose between two models - 16GB and 32GB that are priced at $249 and $349, respectively, and will hit the store shelves in the second half of this month (December 2012).
According to Fuhu, the nabi XD is equipped with a 1.3GHz Quad-Core NVIDIA Tegra 3 system on a chip, which features a 4-PLUS-1 architecture and the integrated GeForce ULP graphics card. Moreover, it comes with a 10.1-inch capacitive IPS (In-Plane Switching Technology for improved viewing angles) five-point multi-touch panel of 1366-by-768 pixels native resolution, 16/32GB of flash storage, optional pad-folio and silicone keyboard cover.
The mobile device further offers a duo of built-in cameras for video calls and taking pictures, a Near Field Communication (NFC) chip, GPS receiver, Bluetooth and Wireless LAN modules. Fuhu claims the nabi XD features an aluminium body and up to 10 hours of battery life.
