Samsung Electronics has launched a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids, a tablet built specifically for children with several educational tools.
JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics said, “It’s no secret that kids are using technology more than ever before. We saw an opportunity to create a device just for kids that provides them with an intuitive, fun and kid-friendly user experience filled with rich, interactive and educational content that parents will love.”
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids comes pre-loaded with educational programs, games, entertainment and e-book apps and allows parents to select the apps they want their kids to have access to with an Application Manager function.
Additionally, a Time Management feature helps parents to set specific time periods for use, so that when the designated use time is up, a password protected lock screen appears, requiring a parent or adult to enter the password to unlock the device.
The Tab 3 Kids is well-equipped with a 1.2GHz dual processor, 1GB RAM, a 3 megapixel front-facing camera, 1.3 megapixel rear-facing camera, an easy-to-grip C Pen, a Kids Case featuring a child-friendly grip and multiple stand options.
The tablet will be available in Korea in September with shipments to China, Europe, US, Africa, South America and South East Asia scheduled later in the fall.
