I love my son, he’s great. But when he picks up the iPad I have a number of concerns…
1 – Chocolate, like, everywhere.
2 – At least six thousand games will be installed. All have something to do with jewels.
3 – The battery will be flat.
So, the new Galaxy Tab 3 Kids is here to address some of those concerns. It’ll be available tomorrow online and from November 8th in stores.
Inside there’s a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB RAM and… well, if you like your cool, sexy, beautiful Samsung devices, prepare to squint your eyes and say, “Eeeuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu……….”
Yes, it’s available in a “bright and interesting” colour, but inside there’s a stack of pre-loaded “kid friendly” content to keep your kids entertained and educated at the same time. Not only that, but there’s also a Kids Store where you can get a range of apps that are suitable for children.
The Galaxy Tab 3 Kids also includes a time-management function to ensure that your child doesn’t go rectangular-eyed* and you can control which apps your child can access too. Nice huh?

* – Remember your parents telling you that you’d go square-eyed? Well, screeens aren’t square any more :)
