LeapFrog to introduce a new tablet for kids

The new LeapPad will reportedly be targeted towards children under the age of 9

If you have never heard of LeapFrog before, it is a company headquartered in California, USA that apart from toys also manufactures educational electronic devices. Their latest next-generation LeapPad tablet aimed at kids under the age of 9 is now available to customers for pre-order and will reportedly soon start shipping.

This educational tablet is powered by a 400MHz central processing unit and sports a 5-inch touch-screen display that has a maximum supported resolution of 400-by-712 pixels. In addition, it houses 2GB of storage space and built-in camera and video recorder.

The LeapPad has a rugged plastic case and is intended to run educational apps and games (as well as Leapster Explorer cartridges). A stylus is also available and can be used either to draw pictures or to improve your kid’s grammar skills.

Further features include motion-based play with a sensor, built-in microphone, e-Book reader, animated visual dictionary and personalized recommendations based on learning progress. The device ships with an AC adapter but can also be powered by four AA batteries.

LeapFrog’s latest tablet has an integrated USB port and will supposedly sell for $100.
