Karuma PlayBase: Tablet for Toddlers?

by


While I’ve seen plenty of toddlers playing with iPhones and iPads, since they aren’t completely smash-proof, you might want to think about giving your little terror a PlayBase from Karuma instead. This is supposed to be an affordable tablet that’s made for younger children. It’s perfect when you don’t want to hand over your iPad 2 and risk having its glass screen shattered or aluminum back dented.

Selling for under $300 (USD), the PlayBase is also more affordable than an iPad. You get a 7-inch screen, and a 1.2GHz Rockchip RK2918 Cortex A8 processor with 3D acceleration. It runs on Android 3 and has 1GB of DDR3 RAM. It measures just 9.7mm thick, and has a shock-absorbent silicone cover that will prevent scratches, but it can also be folded back to function as a stand. There’s also a front-facing camera, and an accelerometer.

The Karuma PlayBase is selling for £170 ($270 USD) and will be available for pre-order on November 15th. Retail sales start on December 1st.

    this is good news… im trying to buy a tablet for my baby to stop using my phone to watch her videos… i found an expensive one called Vinci Tab, that’s too much money for what i want, i dont need the handles that thing have, my baby knows how to grab a tablet… the only thing you dont mention here is about the water resistant, the expensive one has drop resistant and that is important because she (my baby) loves to drull everything. Anyways i would like to buy one of this
