With tablets growing in popularity, it only makes sense that we begin to see more feature rich versions for children begin popping up. Today Oregon Scientific launched a completely redesigned version of its MEEP! Android-based tablet for kids. The MEEP! X2 is a Wi-Fi enabled tablet that is both liquid resistant and shockproof.
Oregon Scientific says that the MEEP! X2 features front and rear cameras, bluetooth connectivity, and runs an dual-core ARM Cortex 1.2GHz processor. 1GB of RAM is present and a microSD slot is included for added storage. The tablet runs Android 4.2 and has been designed with the ruggedness in mind that is needed to survive multiple trips to the playground and being tossed around in both the car and playroom.
Oregon Scientific has built in parental controls into the operating system as well as online which allows parents to have complete control over what content their kids see and what they can access. Going the extra mile, the company has also built its own app store which features over 800 kid-friendly apps that can be downloaded to the MEEP! X2. The device is available at Toys-R-Us stores now and retails for $149.99.
