Kids tablet avialable in time for the holidays
A company called Vinci has unveiled its latest Android-powered tablet called the Vinci MV 7-inch Android tablet. The tablet is an off brand for sure, but it is aimed directly at parents wanting to protect kids from content they shouldn't see. The tablet features a 7-inch screen and has an integrated 3G modem.
The modem is unlocked allowing you to sign up for service with any carrier that supports the modems WCDMA tech. The tablet runs a MTK 6577 SOC and uses the Android 4.1 operating system. The tablet also features integrated WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth. The GPS only functions with data access though. The 7-inch screen supports touch and has a native resolution of 1024 x 600.
The battery indie the tablet is a 2800 mAh unit. The big feature of this tablet is that it comes with no access to in-app purchases or adult content. The tablet is designed to shield kids from inappropriate content.
That also means that the tablet may not be compatible with the normal Google Play store. The tablet does have voice capability allowing it to be used for phone calls with 3G connectivity. The tablet is available for $199.99. There are a bunch of tablets available in that price and size range, some even cheaper than that amount.
