DreamTab kids tablet will offer lots of DreamWorks animated content
DreamWorks animation makes some of the most popular and loved children's animated shows out there. DreamWorks is the studio behind Shrek, Madagascar, Kung-Fu Panda, and lots more popular franchises. Dreamworks has announced that it has teamed up with Fuhu, the company behind the Nabi tablet for kids, to roll out a new tablet at CES 2014 reports the NYT.
The new tablet will be called the DreamTab and DreamWorks will offer lots of custom content just for the tablet. “We could push out a new character moment every day of the year,” said Jim Mainard, head of digital strategy and new business development for DreamWorks.
The first tablet will feature an 8-inch screen and land this spring. Pricing is unconfirmed, but it is expected to cost less than $300. The company is already working on a 12-inch version. The tablet will have all sorts of video content and more.
The company says this isn't just a toy. The tablet is reportedly about as powerful as an iPad in parent mode. It can send IMs to parents and send email as well. “By teaming with DreamWorks to create a device that will have original content — original content that is automatically and frequently updated — we are not following consumers, we are getting ahead of them,” said Jim Mitchell, Fuhu’s chief executive.
