While Computex 2012 saw all the big boys trotting their own line of Windows 8 powered tablets and hybrids, the Singapore-based company Gajah seemed to have ideas of their own. Apart from a 6 inch e-book with touchscreen featuring e-Ink display and a 9.7 inch tablet running on Android 4.0, what stood out was cute a kid-friendly tablet.
The guys from CNET took an interest in this yet to be named tablet. The 7 inch tablet for children runs on Android 4.0 with Gajah's own software. CNET found the interface featuring colorful wallpapers with large icons, while upcoming features seem to include parental controls.
From a software point of view, the tablet still has a long way to go. But it is powered adequately by a single core processor running at 1GHz with 512 MB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The physical looks seem to be inspired from the existing Gajah's MD7008 model. Apart from the looks and finish, the tablet has large and easy to press buttons and the case is protected by rubber bumpers. One look, and you can tell that the tablet is sure to catch the fancy of your little ones.
Now you don't have to worry about sharing your tablet with your child. Your child can have his/her own tablet. The rubber encasing makes sure that the tablet remains functional even after a couple of falls or more. The tablet for children hopes to do well due to the lack of such tablets in the market. With some engaging software and interface, Gajah can make a success out of the tablet and offer some relief to parents, facing the seemingly increasing demands of their children.
