Samsung has officially announced an Android-powered version of its Galaxy Tab 3 tablet device aimed at children.
The 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 Kids tablet will come with educational tools and safety features to keep parents in control, such as the ability to time-restrict access to the device and select from a list of apps they want their children to have access to.
In addition, the Tab 3 Kids will come pre-loaded with top ranked apps for children and “a brand new Kid’s Store aimed at driving the educational possibilities of technology for kids”, Samsung said. Pre-loaded content includes educational, games, entertainment and e-books.
Under the bonnet there should be enough oomph to keep it ticking along nicely, with core specs including a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 8GB of on-board storage. It’ll be available first in Korea in September and will then gradually make its way across to other markets in China, Europe, the US, Africa, South America and South East Asia.
