get your kids off your iPad and give them a tablet that’s specifically designed for them, such as this MEEP! X2 Kids Tablet from Oregon Scientific. building on the success of the original MEEP! introduced last year, the MEEP! X2 sports a sleeker and rugged design that is both shock and splash proof, so that your little ones (and not so little ones) will feel proud to be using it and at the same time, stands up to the abuse your kids might unleash on it during the course of the usage. powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Cortex chip with 1GB RAM and running on Oregon Scientific’s version of Android 4.2 OS, the MEEP! X2 comes standard with built-in WiFi, along with a front- and rear-facing cameras (nothing mind-blowing, though).
specs sheet includes 7″ touchscreen display, 4GB internal storage, expandable through microSD card slot (up to 32GB), HDMI output, Bluetooth 4.0 dual-mode for connecting direct to your favorite wireless MEEP! X2 accessories and a “high capacity” lithium polymer battery (note: no numbers where provided). as with all kids-friendly tablet, the highlight of the tablet is, you guess it, parental control. with the MEEP! X2, a simple web interface allows you to control the way your children access the Internet, peek at their log files and browsing history, setup play, video and reading time, and even more meddling with your kids’ lives by being the authority for approving friend requests (Mary! who’s is this John! – well, you know the drill).
the tablet offers access to two online stores: the MEEP! Store which boasts some 800 games and apps – all kids-friendly, naturally – and also Google Play. though the latter would only be accessible through the parental portal, you know, just to be on the safe side. the MEEP! Store boasts a no direct money transactions policy, but still allows your children to shop for free apps, or purchase apps with the credits approved by you and from there, hopefully, they will learn about some financial sense (or cents?). last but not least, the MEEP! X2 comes with a host of pre-loaded contents, ranging from apps to games to eBooks.
essentially, the MEEP! X2 Kids Tablet is a full-fledge tablet, but with you stealthily reining control over it and with a solid parental control system plus the promise of kids-centric materials, Oregon Scientific is hopeful that parents will drop $149.99 for one, or more for their precious ones. available starting today, exclusively from Toys “R” US.
