"We have invested more research and development dollars into iXL than any other product in our 2010 Fisher-Price product line and it definitely shows," said Mattel CEO Robert Eckert. Mattel is the parent company of Fisher Price.
The $80 "toy" has an SD card slot, USB connectivity, and yes, of course, apps. Children can play games, read story books, draw, listen to music, and look at photos on this piece of kiddie tech.
Yep, it's time to get those infants on their way to becoming tech geeks. The iXL will be coming out in time for the 2010 holiday season.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
