Both are aimed at students, and feature educational software durable design and a kid-friendly user interface as well as access to the Google Play Store and support for third-party Android apps.
Prices are expected to start at $150 for the 7 inch model and $200 for the 10 inch XO Tablet.
The 7 inch model features a 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, WiFi and Bluetooth, a 5MP rear camera, and 2MP front-facing camera. Vivitar says the tablet offers up to 7 hours of battery life.
The 10 inch model has the same screen resolution and the same cameras. But it adds GPS and a bigger battery with up to 12 hours of run time.
Both models feature quad-core processors which are faster than the chip used in last year’s XO Tablet.
Vivitar says optional accessories will include a wireless keyboard and a few things you don’t normally see marked as tablet accessories, including a digital microscope with up to 300x magnification and a digital telescope with up to 200x magnification. Students can use their tablets as viewfinders for the microscope or telescope, and use apps to explore astronomy, biology, or other subjects.
