A new tablet called the Kurio Smart, has been unveiled that offers a Windows 2-in-1 system that has been specifically designed for children and includes a detachable magnetic keyboard together with one year of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Family Safety Parental Controls for $200.
The new tablet for kids has been created by KD Interactive who have previously built Android powered tablets for children but have now added the Windows powered 9 inch touchscreen tablet to their range.
The Kurio Smart is equipped with a Quad-core Intel Bay Trail-T processor, together with connectivity provided by both Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi. As well as front and rear facing cameras and micro USB port and a micro HDMI port.
At launch the new Windows tablet for kids will be supplied running Microsoft’s older Windows 8.1 operating system, although users can easily upgrade for free to Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 operating system on arrival. KD Interactive explains a little more.
Kurio Smart is a sleek, lightweight and portable Windows tablet-and-laptop-in-one with a 9″ touchscreen and a detachable, magnetic keyboard that closes up to become a hard carry case. It includes a one-year free subscription to Microsoft Office, 32GB of internal memory (expandable by 32GB with microSD card) and up to one terabyte of One Drive cloud storage, plus more than 40 preloaded apps and games (a $200 value) for out-of-the-box play.
Kurio Smart is perfect for writing papers, reading e-books, studying and safely browsing the web. Providing hours of after-school entertainment, Kurio Smart also allows kids to take photos and videos, stream music and videos from Spotify, YouTube Kids and Netflix, Skype and stay connected with kid-safe email. Parents can access hundreds of thousands more apps through the Windows Store.
Like all Kurio kid tablets, Kurio Smart comes with powerful parental controls to put mom’s and dad’s minds at ease. Microsoft’s Family Safety system allows parents to determine the websites, apps and games their kids can use, monitor kids’ usage and also set time limits.
