The Vinci Tab computer by Rullingnet, was the first kids’ Android-based tablet in the market, and was launched at CES in January 2011. This seven-inch tablet (389-$499), and the five-inch Vinci Tab M ($199-$229), are both loaded with curriculum options for toddlers and preschoolers ages 18 months and up. The curriculum is designed by psychologists, and targets three age levels of play: the Curious for ages 18 months to 2.5 years, the Confident for ages 2.5 to 3.5 years, and the Capable Child for ages 3.5 to 5 years. The larger seven-inch screen is wrapped with a safe, non-slip silcon bumper handle for ease of use. Upgrades, which include Wi-Fi access, for the seven-inch model (at $499) or for the pocket-sized Vinci Tab M (at $229) will launch in June.
Vinci Tab M, a smaller and lower cost model compared to the Vinci Tab, offers an innovative way of leveraging technology for early learning. Vinci Tab M is powered by Android OS and 3-D animation technology, and employs the same safety and quality standards as the Vinci Tab. Plus, parents can enable Wi-Fi and allow several Vinci Tab M devices to be networked together for children to play as a group. Both Vinci models can be configured through parental controls for full Android access, including Skype, apps in the Android store, and YouTube for older users, or as the child progresses in age and responsibility level.
