Nabi Jr. tablet for kids goes on sale for $99
In addition to launching the nabi2 tablet for children earlier this year, Fuhu is now adding a new device to its nabi Series. According to a company press release, the new gadget is called nabi Jr. and is “one of the hottest products for kids in 2012”. It is based on an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system (with a custom user interface on top) and runs Wings Adaptive Learning System that reportedly covers Pre-K through 6th grade in arts, mathematics, writing and reading.
Apart from the pre-loaded Education software, the latest nabi tablet does not require additional cartridges as it offers access to a dedicated app store for children, the Amazon Appstore and Wings University bookstore. It presumably features a durable, kid-safe design and is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 2 system on a chip that incorporates two processing cores operating at a frequency of 1GHz. Furthermore, the portable device sports a capacitive touchscreen display, which measures 5 inches in diagonal and has a native resolution of 800-by-480 pixels.
Fuhu claims this slate computer comes with 4GB / 16GB of flash memory, built-in Wireless LAN and Bluetooth radios, rotating camera for video calls, taking picture or shooting videos and 2GB of Cloud storage (expandable to 50GB). The nabi Jr. will apparently be available for purchase sometime this month in the Unites States, United Kingdom, China, Korea and Japan for $99 (or $129 for the 16GB version).
