Amazon debuts Fire HD Kids Edition
Next to the other new products unveiled yesterday, Amazon uncovered the Fire HD Kids Edition, a slate "built from the ground up for kids (and their parents)." The Kids Edition slate is "a real tablet, not a toy" and comes loaded with "over 5,000 books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games in Amazon FreeTime Unlimited" for no additional fees.
Fire HD Kids Edition was built with the focus on three main directions: 2-year "worry-free guarantee", plenty of freely available premium content for kids, but also the specs of a mid-range tablet. This slate comes with a quad-core processor, front and back cameras, Dolby Digital audio processing, as well as "a vivid HD display." Its features include advanced parental control with up to four child profiles and very detailed settings for choosing the actions they are allowed to perform.
This new tablet for kids is available in two sizes - 6-inch and 7-inch. Amazon customers can already place their pre-orders for $149 USD and $189 USD, but their devices will begin shipping next month.
