XDA Developers Forum member has discovered that S Memo stores Google user names and passwords in plain text.

Motorola hardware but have been holding out on their recent line of smartphones we have some good news for you.

XDA. This tablet packs a serious punch, especially when compared to other tablets for children on the market. Sadly, in spite of its beastly power, it lacked access to Google Play and the other Google Apps we all rely on in daily life. Thanks to XDA, that issue is resolved. The Nabi 2 packs a Tegra 3 processor, 1GB RAM, and Android 4.0. That is some serious power in a rugged tablet designed to support the lifestyle of young people. This root now makes it a serious tablet that can do almost anything. Once the relatively easy simple root process is completed, users have a couple of options. They can choose to leave the default Monarch UI, which is made for children or they can get the standard Ice Cream Sandwich experience. This is done by simply deleting the /system/vendor folder from the device. As always, be careful rooting your devices, as it is possible to screw the process up and be left with an expensive paper weight. Make sure you have adb installed and have a basic working knowledge of it before attempting to root your Nabi 2. Follow the steps laid out on XDA, and you should have Google Apps installed quickly and easily. [timeline] [via Android Police]
