LG is joining Archos, Nabi, Ematic, Oregon Scientific, and Vinci in the apparently crowded tablets-for-kids space. The LG Kids Pad went on sale in South Korea last week for the about $276, making it one of the more expensive tablets for kids.
While it’s not clear what operating system the tablet runs, it features an app store and support for removable cartridges with apps, games, and other digital content designed for kids. The Kids Pad will ship with a cartridge designed to help children learn English, for instance.
The Kids Pad features a 9 inch screen, camera, automatic light sensor, and can function as an MP3 player.
LG isn’t providing many more details about the tablet… and I doubt we’ll see it in the US anytime soon… at least not at a $276 price point. For that price, you could almost buy two competing kid-friendly tablets from one of the many other companies producing tablets for children.
