Often times you find yourself in a situation where selecting a high tech device for your kid does not appear an easy task. And when it comes to gift a tablet to your kid, things don’t go well if you look for the mighty tablets made for grownups. Some kid’s tablets were available in the market time to time but they failed to gain the ground. The Kurio, made by Inspiration Works, seems to be a device that meets the requirements of most of the parents. It is a device that you can gift to your kid and you won’t feel ‘childish’ to use it either, which is the beauty of the product. It therefore deserves to be called an Android family tablet.
Two things that worry more the parents while their kids use internet, one, watching unhealthy web content, and two, the amount of time they spend on the net. Both of these two aspects can spoil your child unless controlled. Giving them a device with uncontrolled access to the internet isn’t a rational step for the sake of the healthy development of your kids. In such a scenario, if you are offered a device that keeps all such things under check, then you don’t have to bother about them and can happily gift the children that kind of device. In fact, you should; you can reward the kids for doing something better, or while they achieve some goal that you set up for them. This certainly helps them get encouraged and do better the next time as well. The Kurio, or such other devices, could be a good choice since you will have the desired controlled while your child can learn in a healthier and nice atmosphere.
The Kurio comes in three sizes, 7 inch, 8 inch and 10 inch. It is made kid-proof with a drop-safe protective bumper, an unattractive protective cowling that is removable. Its 7 inch version is already in the market, others may appear soon as well. It has got a front and rear camera, integrated microphone, a mini USB drive, built-in Wi-Fi, a micro SD card slot that allows you to extend the 4GB memory to 32GB, a headphone jack, multi-language support, etc. It runs on Android 4.0 ice Cream Sandwich and has full access to the Android App Store that you can block if necessary.
The Kurio comes with its own apps, but you can use any Android application built for tablets and smartphones as well. Some of the preloaded apps include Fruit Ninja, Cut the Rope, Angry Birds, Doodle Jump, World of Goo, etc. If you have played such apps on an iPad, you won’t feel any difference in the performance when you play them on the Kurio. The tablet is easy to use and its touch screen works quite well. It offers the option to create kid’s profile, or use the existing ones, depending on the age of your kid.
The 7 inch model can cost you around US $230, and $310 for the 10 inch model. The tablet doesn’t look expensive and considering the many plus points it comes with, The Kurio can be a good device for the whole family.
