VTech refreshes its MobiGo and InnoTab lines, keeps things affordable
Since the introduction of the tablet PC, we’ve witnessed an extensive scoop of designs both trying to win their space in the market. But then again you’ll notice most of these slates share something in common: and that is principally design aimed at adults or at least kids old enough to be liable for a delicate device. Like in the case for iPad, we’ve seen several cases in design to shield the tablet or accommodate the use of minors. But can a tiny cadre of slates aimed precisely at minors – with preschoolers included –be good tools? What’s the value for optimizing them for minors?
Such an example is VTech, a brand responsible with making kid-oriented tablets and now they’ve upgraded their MobiGo and InnoTab lines and kept prices pretty low. The InnoTab 2 is one of these new models, a Learning App Tablet packing 2GB of storage, expandable with 32GB via SD card.
The same model has a rotating camera for taking stills and videos and playing augmented reality games. It adds to the previous model a motion sensor and microphone. MobiGo 2 is a multifunctional device, that’s basically a learning tool, equipped with a brand new motion sensor and microphone for gaming controls.
InnoTab 2 offers a touchscreen, free onboard activities and that rotatable camera. Hundreds of apps will be available to download at VTech’s Learning Lodge NavigatorTM. Children can blow into the microphone of the MobiGo 2 to move objects, blow off dusts or start special effects. Preloaded with this device you get 3 great games, an e-reader, photo album and photo viewer, plus a coloring book.
