We’ve seen a couple Android tablets for kids. So far the most notable tablet for kids has been the Vinci tablet. The Vinci tablet is an Android tablet with deep child friendly integration and a curriculum developed by the Vinci company.
Today, Archos has announced their entry into the kid friendly tablet market. Archos’ new “Child Pad” is a 7″ kid friendly Android tablet, running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Archos has skinned the tablet with a more child friendly user interface with bright colors and folders that go directly to kids games, puzzles, and entertainment.
Archos has designed the “Child Pad” to be CIPA and COPPA regulations which ensures a safe tablet environment for kids.
