Toys R Us will says its latest Android tablet for kids will be available in-stores and online starting Monday, October 14th. The Tabeo e2 is an 8 inch tablet with a dual-core processor, quad-core GPU, and Android 4.2 software.
The tablet is aimed at kids and has a protective case, comes with educational apps and games pre-loaded, and features the tabeo App Store rather than Google’s Play Store — while that’s not always a good thing, it might actually be a selling point for a tablet you plan to hand over to your kids.
Toys R Us charges $150 for the Tabeo e2.
The tablet features 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a 2MP front camera, and a 0.3MP rear camera. It supports WiFi and Bluetooth, has an 8 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel capacitive multitouch display, an HDMI port, and a microSD card slot for up to 64GB of additional storage. The tablet gets up to 5 hours of run time.
There’s parental filtering software that lets you decided what content your kids can access, and the case is designed to withstand a bit of abuse — the screen is designed not to break even if the tablet falls to the floor.
