Ematic had previously introduced its FunTab for kids. Ematic is not exactly a newcomer to this territory, and this time out the company is looking to build on its previous release with the announcement of a slightly more powerful `Pro’ model.
The Ematic FunTab has a 17.7-cm (7-inch) 800 x 480 display with a 1 GHz CPU, 1 GB RAM, running Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich and has 8 GB of onboard storage which can be expanded up to 32 GB by microSD.
Additionally, Ematic has placed emphasis on its built-in Zoodles feature that `creates a safe and educational online learning experience for children,’ plus the inclusion of pre-loaded apps like Skitch, School Assistant, Cut The Rope and Angry Birds game. The FunTab Pro will be available at Walmart and with other retailers for $150 and will come with colourful chageplate.
The Kids tablet segment in the US seems to be a viable market for the tablet makers. Over the last couple of months we have seen numerous brands unveiling their kids range.
The Indian market is yet to observe such maturity in the tablet segment as major tablet makers are occupied in targeting the mass consumer.
