Samsung announces child-friendly Galaxy Tab 3
Samsung has announced a new version of the Galaxy Tab 3. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids is designed for children and includes educational applications and additional security, along with a playful appearance. This tablet, designed specifically for children, will be probably announced at IFA 2013 in Berlin.
This model features a 7-inch display and the same specifications as the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 (7.0):
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

- 1024 x 600 pixels Resolution

- Micro SDHC reader
- 3.2 MPX rear camera; 1.3 MPX webcam

The uniqueness of the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids lies in its design and software. Thus, the tablet will be available in a striking yellow finish, and users can choose bumpers (which can be removed) in various colours that protect the tablet from potential falls.
In terms of software, parents can choose which apps their children have access to, which will help them maintain control over what kids can do and ensuring that they are always in a safe environment. This Samsung tablet also provides a number of high quality applications developed just for children. There is also an application store called Kid’s Store, filled with applications that should encourage the educational progress of children. Games, entertainment apps and digital books can also be found in this store.
Also, certain accessories are expected. For example, special case can be purchased that can be also used as a kickstand and the Korean manufacturer has developed the C Pen which lets you write and draw on the tablet.
The Galaxy Tab 3 Kids will be initially released in September in Korea; Africa will follow along with China, Europe, the United States, South America and South East Asia. A retail price is not yet available at the moment.0
