Archos touts Android tablets for toddlers

Child Pad out soon

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Archos has jumped on the tech for tots bandwagon by announcing a 7in Android tablet called the Child Pad.

The lightweight device features a 1GHz processor and 1GB of Ram powering Google's latest OS, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

ICS is spruced up with a easy-to-use and highly colourful UI that Archos hopes will appeal to your nippers.

When it comes to infant-friendly features, the Child Pad provides access to AppsLib's Kids App Store, which filters content down to 14 categories and 10,000 apps more aimed at young ones. Some 28 of the top apps come pre-loaded on the tablet.

There are also parental controls powered by Editions Profil, which the company claied ranks as one of the most efficient providers of such software.

The Child Pad will join Archos' broader array of Android tablets at the end of March for £99 - $129 in the States.

It'll beat Inspiration Works' The Kurio to market, which is another ICS tablet specifically for kids. ®
