Tabeo is the first-ever consumer electronics device from Toys“R”Us. It comes loaded with 50 free did-friendly apps.
Taking a clue from Amazon, ToysRUs today announced it is introducing the first wi-fi tablet designed by the toy retailer. Called tabeo, the tablet is pre-loaded with the content kids want, as well as safety features desired by parents.
The 7-inch multi-touch tablet features 50 free, preinstalled apps were selected to entertain and educate children, while helping them explore the Internet. Making online safety a top priority, tabeo was designed with integrated parental controls that offer the flexibility to customize levels of Internet access for each member of the family. tabeo will be available exclusively at ToysRUs stores nationwide starting October 21 for $149.99.
Specifications of the Tabeo include Android 4.0, 1GB RAM, 4GB Storage, ARM Cortex A8 CPU at 1Ghz and mini-HDMI out.
Based on the only image available so far (see above), the user interface of the Tabeo looks really bad. The Tabeo has the same price as the upgraded Amazon Kindle Fire. I am not sure if the Tabeo is going to be a hot seller. It looks more like these bottom feeding Android tablets available on the market.
