Technology is not the only thing that is advancing, kids nowadays are becoming more aware (as well as dependent) on the gadgets that we enjoy everyday. And if you want to give your kid a good Android fix, the just-announced MEEP! Android tablet might be the way to go.
The MEEP! tablet is manufactured by Oregon Scientific, and has a 7-inch display, WiFi connectivity and a G-Sensor (for improved viewing angles). It also features a helpful amount of parental controls, which can be modified and controlled from any computer or smartphone with an internet connection.
Aside from that, we do not know any more details. Oregon Scientific claims that this is an affordable tablet, though, as well as durable. And it might be important to note that it is geared towards children of age 6 and above. We know that those kids will be running around with these devices, so let’s see just how durable this device ends up being.
Education should be one of the main concerns with such devices. The manufacturer will also offer accessories, which include musical instruments for all the little musicians out there.
Hit the press release and stay tuned for more details to come during TIA Toy Fair, this weekend, if you are interested in purchasing a new gadget for your little ones.
