Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition Android tablet for kids with 2-year worry-free guarantee
Amazon Fire HD Kids Edition
This tablet has been built with kids in mind and comes with a 2-year worry-free guarantee, but it also features a powerful quad-core processor and access to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited for one year.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
