Fuhu’s been making kid-friendly tablets for a few years, but the company’s next model is something different. The company is partnering with DreamWorks, the animation studio behind popular films and TV shows to launch a tablet called the DreamTab.
Like other Fuhu tablets, it’ll have a rugged case and software that’s appropriate for young eyes. But what’ll really set it apart is the digital content provided by DreamWorks. It’s also the company’s first tablet powered by an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor.
The New York Times reports that the companies will offer an 8 inch tablet that will sell for less than $300. A larger 12 inch model is also in the works.
DreamWorks is creating custom animation for the tablet so that, for example, you might see characters from a DreamWorks movie dancing or waving hello to greet you when you turn on the tablet. The animation studio could push new animations like this to users’ tablets at any time through over-the-air updates.
But the Android tablet isn’t just designed to get your kids hooked on DreamWorks content, it’ll also sport educational content including drawing apps — the tablet will come with a stylus.
