When I was a kid I had an Etch a Sketch, kids don’t know how good they have it these days! Today Archos announced their latest tablet which is crafted for children, which is known as the Arnova Child Pad. The 7-inch tablet will be released with Android 4.0 and has a very reasonable price tag at $129. The device comes pre-loaded with Alvin & The Chipmunks apps and wallpapers, as well as other services and apps that are both educational and fun for kids.
The Android 4.0 device is powered by a 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage, a microSD expansion, and a front-facing camera. WiFi, micro-USB and 1080p video playback are also included. The tablet does not support Google Play or the Amazon Appstore, but does include the child friendly AppsLib store for new apps and games. Not bad at all for this price, with some very decent specs.
I’m sure we will see some decent modding in the future which could easily make the Archos Arnova Child Pad a usable tablet for adults as well. So any parents out there see their child owning one? I could see these tablets keeping kids entertained for hours. Be sure to also check out the VINCI tablet for toddlers, which was announced last year.
