Fuhu announces the nabi XD Android tablet for Tweens
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.
