Do kids need their own tablet? There are a number of offerings on the market priced far less than the iPad and other big name tablets that are generally limited to educational apps and games.
If reports of Samsung entering the education tablet fray are true, it would be the biggest player to enter the market with a dedicated device.
According MovePlayer, Samsung is planning a special version of its Galaxy Tab 3 for kids that could launch in Korea next month. No word on when or if a U.S. version might be available.
Like the current version of Galaxy Tab 3, the new tablet has a 7-inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software.
But this special kids' version will also include a removable, rugged bumper case and what appears to be a custom user interface designed for kids.
