Introducing kids to some of the latest gadgets is one way to make learning fun. One such gadget that kids will definitely love is a notebook-tablet combo device. While we have seen devices like these sold in the market they are expensive and are meant to be used by adults. Lexibook however has released a kid friendly device that can be used as a notebook or a tablet called the Laptab and is priced really cheap.
The Lexibook Laptab runs on Google Android and combines the features of a notebook and a tablet. Open its lid and you will have access to the keyboard and be able to use it as a notebook. Twist the screen around and fold it flat and it transforms into a tablet where you can use its touchscreen.
The device isn’t one of the best notebooks or tablets around and isn’t that ruggedly built however its price does make it very attractive. It’s being sold for £149.99 in the UK or roughly $230 in the US.
