Parents who are looking for a tablet to give to their kids should definitely consider getting this model. Aside from being constructed to withstand rigorous usage it also has great features.
Parents will definitely love the new parental control feature that allows them to monitor and access the tablet itself. This can be done remotely using a PC, iPad or any other mobile device with a Wi-Fi or cellular connection data.
