Polaroid’s new $150 Android 4.0 tablet is designed for kids

Polaroid is now selling a new kid-friendly tablet with a 7 inch display and a large rubber case designed to protect the tablet from spills and falls. If the tablet looks familiar, that’s probably because it seems to be a rebranded Gajah tablet.

You can pick up the new 7 inch tablet from Polaroid for $150.

The tablet features a 1 GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a 2MP camera. It runs Android 4.0 and includes educational apps and interactive books. The NOOK eBook store comes preloaded.

What helps set this model apart from other budget tablets are the sturdy rubber case and the app store which only includes apps that have been deemed appropriate for children. But the tablet has at least one thing the Google Nexus 7 lacks: an SD card slot.

On the other hand, it has a low resolution 800 x 480 pixel display.

    I’m not sure you covered it, but this tablet was also at last year’s CES.

    It’s the size of an iPad but with a small, low-res screen. The kids’ll never know the difference! Right? :-)
