Techno Source and KD Interactive both announced Kurio 7x 4G LTE, a tablet designed for kids, and will run exclusively on the Verizon Wireless network. The tablet is designed to provide families with a high speed Internet access using America’s largest 4G LTE network.
Just like any other tablet that is designed for kids one of the main features of this device is its parental control. The Kurio line has been known to deliver one of the best parental control features and this model carries on with that tradition. Parents can create up to eight unique user profiles each offering separation of files, apps, games, parental controls and much more.
Parents will be able to assign different settings for each of their children. They can choose from the recommended settings or they can create a list of their own.
The Kurio 7x 4G LTE will also have an advanced parental control system designed for mobile access on Verizon’s network. This includes geolocation, data management and remote administration features. Parents will not have to worry about subscription fees to enjoy this since this feature is already built into the device.
Eric Levin, division head of Techno Source, said that “If today’s families are always on the go, why should their kids’ tablet experience have to end when Wi-Fi connection is unavailable? By teaming up with Verizon Wireless, we’re not only offering kids a seamless Kurio experience, but with Verizon’s Share Everything Plans, an affordable one at that.”
Pieter van den Bosch, strategic director of KD Group, also said that “More and more streaming and on-demand services are becoming available. By adding Verizon Wireless 4G LTE connectivity combined with a quad-core processor, the new Kurio 7x 4G LTE tablet will provide easy and smooth access to all of these resources, wherever kids are using their tablets.”
The Kurio 7x 4G LTE will be showcased at CES 2014 and is expected to ship in the summer of 2014.
