Lexibook Ultra Tablet -- Ages 12 and up (Price Unknown)

Lexibook Ultra Tablet -- Ages 12 and up (Price Unknown)
French company Lexibook will release a slew of tablets for kids this summer, but the one many teenagers will probably go for is the 10.1-inch Ultra Tablet. This Android 4.0 tablet keeps things light and slim, just like the iPad, but without the high cost. And while they do feature some education-based pre-loaded apps and parental control utilities, they don't look like tablets made for kids or have kid-focused interfaces. Instead, you get the same stock Ice Cream Sandwich look. The Ultra Tablet will come with a full office suite, eBook reader with all the classics available for free, and even Netflix. Lexibook hasn’t announced pricing yet, but expect it to come in around $300 or so.

    Hi KT, my question is that I notice the Nabi 2 didn’t make your list, why is that? I’m considering this one for my 7 year old, what is the difference in your opinion compared to the ones you chose? Thanks, Melissa~

    I bought this for my toddler aged granddaughter. I was very impressed witht the design, features and software. Nonetheless, I am going to return it. Why? The battery storage compartment on the backside of the Innotab 2s is way too easily accessible for young ones. The cover pops off easily, so easily I inadvertently popped it myself while test driving the software. I am really sad to return it because it is an awesome children’s tablet. At age 3, I am not 100% certain that that she would not put the batteries in her mouth. The risk of her choking on them or worse is just too high.

    The innotab is a waste of money. The battery life is about 15 minutes. I have tried several rechargeable kind and no last llonger than 15 mimutes. My son has to sit by a outlet so that he can play with his Innotab cause that is the only way to play with it while it is connected to the wall.

    I’ve seen and test driven some ‘childrens tablets’. They are without exception all crap. The way to go for the technical savvy is to protect your network gateway with url filtering capabilities (can be had for $0 with IPcop and free url fitler). Default security on the tablet or pc is than enough to protect the toddlers from any harm. So my youngsters have an iPad 1 with protective case. Protection settings are all on and browing is done with K9. Great.
