One of the best things about Android tablets is that there is something for everyone. If you are looking for feature packed devices then you might want to check out some of the latest offerings of brands such as Samsung or LG. If you are a price conscious consumer then you may want to go for the offerings of Google or Amazon. Those looking for tablets aimed at kids can also choose from several devices and one of this comes from a company called Vinci which has just launched the Vinci MV 7-inch Android tablet.
The Vinci MV 7-inch Android tablet is specifically designed to be used by kids and can even be used by parents as a regular tablet as well. Kids will be able to access voice and data services (courtesy of their parents plan). The device has direct access to the Vinci Curriculum which provides structured learning content aimed at making your kid successful at school. Another great feature is access to the Vinci Kids Library which is a safe environment that offers more than 800 handpicked titles that are fun and engaging.

This device is one of the few models designed for kids that can access a network with its dual-SIM capability. We’ve seen lots of dual-SIM smartphones out in the market but this feature is not common in tablets. The first SIM slot can accommodate a GSM SIM while the second one can accommodate a WCDMA SIM. This makes it easy to separate call and text services from data services.
The Vinci MV 7 inch tablet is currently selling for $199.99 at the company website. Its price point makes it similar to other high end tablets (Nexus 7, Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3) which might make this device a difficult sell.
If you are looking for a kid friendly tablet that offers great content and comes with 3G capabilities then you might want to check out this device.
