A while ago I asked you a question: Do I really need a tablet? And now I’ll make you someone elseMy son / nephew really needs a pill?
You may be wondering what is it about? There were several reasons that led me to write this article. First my son, 7 years old. It is a Geek Potential that steals from me as quickly as possible Smartphone or my tablet (or of course the computer). Unlike his mother, he loves every new technological device and never gets tired of playing with them. On second place, There have already been several friends who have asked me which tablet to buy for their son. My first answer was always the same: “Does your son / daughter really need a tablet?” In my arrogance, I tried to take away the idea that they would buy a new device for their infants: it’s okay for a while, as property it seemed excessive …
Until I realized that I’m not the one to take ideas away from someone. On the contrary, my obligation as a friend and connoisseur of this world is to advise you to buy the best that you can afford. I won’t fool you, my first reaction is still one of caution: I don’t want someone to buy their kids an item for fashion (depending on their age, of course), but everyone does what they want at home, right? And since class is starting, we need to encourage the little ones to take advantage of the class, and Christmas is just around the corner, today I propose some ideal tablets for the “crazy little ones”.
Super Paquito, the Imaginarium tablet
I’ll start with the last one marketed. Last day 8 it was sold in Imaginarium stores. This chain of educational toys has always opted for simple technology for kids and is now moving into the Android world (albeit with caveats, as we’ll see). It has a 9.7-inch capacitive multi-touch screen with a 1024 × 768 resolution, its capacity is 16 GB (expandable through microSD), its The CPU is a 1 GHz Cortex A8 and 1 GB of RAM and two cameras (3 and 2 MPx). As for the SO, I’m afraid it is a exclusive version called magicOS based on Android (we don’t know any more). They added parental controls via a new environment that only tutors can access to choose the content that the child has access to. You can also define hours of use to teach them responsible time management. Imaginarium has developed a platform for digital content, Paquitoland with exclusive applications (some for free), E-books, Videos, etc. as well as a content area on-line, I-moon, cloud storage for the whole family. The price for this “technological toy” is 299 €.
