While we are expecting Polaroid to unveil an Android powered camera during CES, it looks like they will also be showing off an Android tablet. This is far from the first we have heard from Polaroid in terms of tablets, this one however, is designed with kids in mind. Which really just means that the tablet has a durable exterior as well as some other kid friendly features.
That being said, the Polaroid “kids tablet” is said to have been specifically designed for children with features to include a side and rear bumpers, parental controls and a safe web browser. Polaroid is also including an exclusive App Shop which will contain a mix of free and paid apps that are kid-friendly. Otherwise, those making the purchase can expect some pre-loaded interactive children’s books as well as NOOK for Android with Dr. Seuss and Smithsonian books.
Aside from the kid-friendly features, the tablet will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with hardware to include an 800 x 480 display resolution, 1GHz Cortex A8 processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, an SD card slot, Wi-Fi, a 3500 mAh battery and 2 megapixel rear-facing camera.
Polaroid will have the kids tablet on display during CES, however that aside, those interested in making a purchase can do so now by way of the Polaroid website. In addition, the tablet will be available in Kohl’s retail stores this month. Lastly, the tablet will set you back $149.99.
