Techno Source And KD Interactive introduce Kurio 7x 4G LTE tablet for kids
The tablet includes an utilizing parenting controls suite
We’ve seen some companies releasing tablets exclusively for kids lately, so there’s no surprise that one of those devices have made its way to CES 2014. Just minutes ago, KD Interactive and Techno Source have made an announcement that put a little tablet device in the spotlight, so if you’re considering buying your kid one, you might be interested in Kurio 7x. The little tablet is sporting a 7-inch display and is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It is set to arrive soon at Verizon Wireless, which means that in addition to the traditional Wi-Fi connectivity, the Kurio will also have an optional 4G support as well. With that being said, your kid will be able to continue using the tablet even outside the house once Verizon adds 4G LTE data to the device.
Eric Levin, the division head at Techno Source believes this move is required as today’s families are always on the go and kids would also need their tablet experience where there’s no Wi-Fi connection available. He also mentions that teaming up with Verizon Wireless is a great way to offer kids seamless Kurio experience and the carrier’s Share Everything plans for a very appealing price. To make sure that the Kurio 7x 4G LTE is as kids friendly as possible, the manufacturer has added some exclusive features such as utilizing parenting controls suite that would allow the creation of up to eight unique profiles. This means that each kid can be granted different levels of access and permissions. Unfortunately there is still no word about pricing, however Kurio 7x is set to arrive sometime during summer this year, so there’s no need to rush.
It’s like having eight different tablets in one. Parents determine each child’s level of Internet access, choosing from recommended settings by child age, blocking specific websites and inappropriate terms, or by creating safe lists. The Kurio Genius™ Internet filtering system with advanced security levels and daily auto-updates covers more than 450 million websites (and counting) in 170 different languages. Parents can also set daily time limits and manage applications by profile, including restricting web access by app.
