Fuhu’s Nabi tablets are aimed at kids. But despite the bright colors and semi-rugged design, some of the company’s latest models have specs you’d expect to find on a full-fledged tablet.

The $250 Nabi XD, for instance, is a 10 inch tablet with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, up to 32GB of storage, and an optional keyboard cover. Now it turns out Fuhu is also offering a tablet that’s just over half the price, less than half the size, but which has surprisingly similar specs.

Nabi Jr.

The Fuhu Nabi Jr if a 5 inch tablet with an 800 x 480 pixel multitouch display, up to 16GB of storage, and a camera that can swivel to face the front or back.

While the company announced a $99 model last year featuring 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, a 2350mAh battery, and a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, Android Police reports that there’s a new $139 model with much better specs.

It has an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 2500mAh batteryand runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (the cheaper model runs Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich).

It also has a kind of chunky case — it’s designed for kids, after all.

While the screen resolution isn’t very impressive, the rest of the specs look pretty great. The handheld devices supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi, has Bluetooth 3.0, a microSD card slto, and features a 2MP camera. You also get a removable rubber case that helps protect the device.

What you don’t get is out-of-the-box support for the Google Play Store, but you should be able to root the tablet and install it yourself.

The Nabi Jr. tablet with Tegra 3 is available for $140 from J&R, B&H, and Best Buy.

  1. “$129 Nabi Jr is a 5 inch tablet with a Tegra 3 processor”

    Wrong price in headline. It’s $139.99.

  2. Ahhhh, too bad. For kids.

    So has Samsung given up on the 5 inch Galaxy players. I hope not.

        1. I must confess that while i keep looking, i ponder just getting a cheap Huawei or ZTE phone in the 4-5 inch range.

          1. I would probably do the same, but the country I live in has restrictions on importing phones, so I pretty much have to stick with wifi-only devices, which means slim pickings in the 4-5 inch range.

          2. LOL. That would be nice, but I am afraid the customs officials still wouldn´t let it through.

  3. that’s better than by younger brother and sister’s tablets which have some generic a9 processor and 512mb ram and less than 2gb of storage
