The LG G2 comes packed with some pretty unique features but perhaps none more unique than Guest Mode. This lets you set up custom profiles for guest users.
The Android platform can be great for kids, but you’ll want the right devices, apps and parental controls to ensure their safety. Consider this your crash course to Android and kids.
At CES 2013, Polaroid is going to display its newly launched Kids Tablet, which is designed to offer a fun and interactive experience to children.
With the market for kid-friendly tablets continuing to grow, it makes sense that more companies are trying to get in on the action. LG is the latest company to enter the market with the LG Kids Pad, which launches in Korea tomorrow.
Kids love touchscreens. They are accessible and intuitive to use. That makes tablets ideal for learning and for play. The Android platform offers some really great apps for kids and manufacturers are starting to see the potential for dedicated child-friendly devices. That means you can reclaim your Galaxy S3 or your Nexus 7 and keep the kids happy with a tablet of their own.
The two new kiddie tabs are called the Junior Tablet and Master Tablet and come from Lexibook, a French-based tech manufacturer that doesn’t say much. In such a suddenly crowded and competitive niche, the name of the company behind the slates might be of grand importance, although on the surface we can’t say these two look very different from the FunTab Pro, for example.
We’ve seen several decent tabs targeting children released during the past few months, with the Fuhu Nabi 2, Archos ChildPad and Toys R Us Tabeo being the first few names that come to mind. Still, there seems to be more room for competition, and now a new player is getting into the game.
Although we don’t usually pay much attention to kid-friendly tablets due to their usual modest hardware configurations, Fuhu’s Nabi 2 is certainly a whole different kettle of fish. Not only is the 7-incher available for sale for just $200, but it also comes with a quad-core 1.3GHz Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0 ICS, being perfect for running much more complex apps and games than just Angry Birds or Temple Run.
Fuhu, a tech company founded in 2008 and best known for creating the Nabi Tablet for children, is suing giant retailer Toys R Us for fraud, breach of contract, intellectual theft and a couple of other such goodies.
Are you planning to give your kids smartphones this holiday season? You might want to consider that a mobile security company says Android is a more secure platform for kids than iOS.
