Talk about trying to spoil our innocent children by putting too much power in their small hands. Nabi has announced the Nabi 2 tablet, powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 chipset and running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, set for release on October 22nd for £149, making it the fastest tablet ever made specially for kids.
Clad in a solid-looking protective case, the Nabi 2 will come packed with educational software, while the AppZone will offer more than 500 “Mum-Selected, Kid-Approved” apps. The specs include a 7″ 1024 x 600 display, 1GB RAM, 2 megapixel front camera with 720p video recording, 8GB storage expandable via microSD (up to 32GB), free 2GB cloud storage, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, a mini HDMI port, and a 3,850 mAh battery.
The Nabi 2 is quite a feature-packed Android tablet that a kid would love and would make for a good Christmas present for sure, by which time its price will probably have dropped quite a bit.
Here is the official press release:

In addition to 2,000 lessons in math, science, and English, FoozKids™ University provides parents with detailed insight into skills mastered and trouble spots, and rewards proficiency with nabi™ Coins.
Play: nabi is endlessly entertaining. nabi comes with Spinlets+ Music, the most comprehensive music solution for kids with over 9,000 albums; Spinlets+ TV with more than 700 hours of kid-friendly entertainment; Console-quality HD gaming; and over 500 mum-picked, kid-approved apps in the AppZone application store.

For Life: Busy parents need solutions, not just features. nabi™ Sync, nabi™ Cloud, nabi™ Over-The-Air and nabi™ MD make it easy for them to sync, store their content in the cloud, sync wirelessly and trouble shoot issues, respectively.
