New York — Techno Source’s newest Kurio kid tablet is billed as its most advanced yet, able to withstand any bump or jolt its target audience will inflict while adding 24/7 tech support for safety-minded parents.
The 7-inch Kurio Xtreme, which will replace the Kurio 7s and 10s, features Android 4.4, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, an Intel Atom processor, 16GB internal memory with 32GB MicroSD slot, 0.3-megapixel front camera and 2.1-megapixel rear camera. The lithium-polymer battery is said to provide six to eight hours of play time.
It comes preloaded with a host of included content, including apps from content partner Common Sense Media.
For the first time in a Kurio tablet, the device has 24/7 customer support with live text chatting and the ability to remotely control the device for assistance.
As with other Techno Source devices, parents are able to whitelist and blacklist any of the content; set advertisement filters; and create independent user profiles. They are also able to set time limits for apps, and Techno Source has added email-monitoring and kid-safe social-networking apps.
The tablet will be available in blue on Oct. 1 for a $129 suggested retail, and a pink version will be available exclusively through Toys“R”Us. A special gaming stand, meant for use with the Kurio Motion interactive games, is included, and the company will also offer a line of separately sold accessories.
Techno Source is a division of LF Products.
