Fuhu, Intel To Offer Intel-based Android Tablet For Kids
Fuhu Inc. and Intel collaborated to deliver DreamTab, a new educational and entertainment tablet for kids.
"We are dedicated to providing kids new and engaging experiences in learning and entertainment integrating the most up-to-date and powerful technology in the market," said Jim Mitchell, CEO, Fuhu. "With Intel Inside, we are provided with the power and performance to deliver amazing experiences, limitless creativity and professional tools for kids to animate and tell stories in the palm of their hands."
Based on Intel's new 64-bit enabled Intel Atom Z3740 processor ("Bay Trail"), the DreamTab will offer fast performance, powerful graphics capabilities, long battery life, educational and entertainment experiences. It will be an Android-based tablet that includes advances in stylus, touch-screen and NFC technologies.
The DreamTab will include Fuhu's signature Wings Learning System solution and a new feature, the interactive Creative Studio "Be an Artist" program, built exclusively for the DreamTab. Kids will be able to create their favorite DreamWorks characters in an interactive workshop featuring integrated animation tools. Wings Learning System will also work in conjunction with first-of-its-kind offline Bluetooth-enabled workbooks, bringing together offline and online learning experiences.
In addition to the enhanced Wings Learning System, Fuhu will also be launching its next-generation OS overlay titled Blue Morpho, highlighting all new features in learn, play and grow in a safe environment:
- Parental controls allow moms/dads to set time limits, add nabi coins to a kid's account, and lock or unlock features. The controls also provide for a COPPA-compliant/kid-safe e-mail, text and photo sharing capability that is one-of-a-kind and can integrate with parents' own mobile devices. With new content created for the DreamTab by DreamWorks filmmakers to bring these controls to life, kids can now customize their own tablet experience from sign on to shut down with exclusive character moments encouraging them to study, go out and play, or wake up in the morning.
- With NFC (near field communication) gaming technology, figurines come to life online by tapping on the tablet. The initial game, School of Dragons, an educational multiplayer online experience, will feature DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon franchise.
- Custom-built "nabi Play" features the widest variety of kids programming - from DreamWorks Animation as well as Nick, Disney, Cartoon Network and other leading children's content sources - comingled in one location.
- Curated App Zone and Treasure Box allow parents and kids to browse, download, purchase apps, games, music, movies, videos, e-books and even real goods with a single click.
