Fuhu is known for its series of kid-friendly tabs which does usually mean these devices come in sizes compatible with kids. Fuhu- an EI Segundo, Calif-based company is introducing a couple of new tablets that may seem more like TVs at first sight- Nabi Big tab HD 20 and Nabi Big Tab HD 24.
These gigantic slates come loaded with plenty of kid-oriented entertainment- like board games and story books – but are portable enough for a child to carry them from say the playroom to the kitchen table.
The company claims them to be “the world’s biggest Android tablets made for sharing.” The mega-tablets are aimed at increased social interaction, communication, collaboration and socialized learning.
The Big Tab HD tablet features Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, 16GB of storage and weighs at a whooping 10.5 pounds. The table also comes with a light weight, removable carrying metal frame that is adjustable to any angle or that can be removed for a surface/table-top experience, ideal for board games and multiplayer interactions.
“We are so pleased to introduce the Nabi Big Tab line of products and are excited about the implications as a new category of family tablets. We were simply amazed at how Big Tab’s larger format transformed our interactions with our children, family gatherings and made the tablet experience easier for seniors,” said Jim Mitchell, Fuhu CEO.
Once the Big Tab is set up, users will find a multitude of board games, classic games and even activities like air hockey. Show Time and Story Time have curated content to help kids and parents spend their valuable time together.
The tablet’s dual mode feature enables families to choose between entering adult or child modes, both of which have different controls and reactions.
The nabi mode has several educational apps and games, such as the Big Canvas app that help kids draw, create animations and edit videos; the Wings Learning System TM, an app that features more than 17,000 lessons and 300,000 questions in Math, Reading and Writing for Kindergarten to sixth class; and a Chore List app, a tool parents can use to create tasks for kids to complete.
The Big Tab 20 and 24 will launch in the fall at $449 and $549 respectively.
