Summary: The iPad and iPod Touch have been huge hits with children and schools. But there's a new wave of Android devices and tablets created by vendors taking advantage of Android's open-ness to create devices tailored specially for kids and teachers. By Eric Lai for UberMobile |September 11, 2012 -- 23:20 GMT (16:20 PDT) Previous | Next Image 1 of 10 The Kineo Tablet is an 8-inch 1.3 GHz dual-core tablet aimed at schools that starts at $299. It comes from a company, Brainchild, that has been around in the educational space for two decades. According to Tim Kimbrell, a rep at Brainchild, it actually developed the first portable tutoring device back in 1993. That allows the Kineo to work well with a school's other assessment and instructional software, says Kimbrell, while offering consumer features like curated access to Google Play app store. The use of replacable Li-Ion batteries means that the Kineo can outlast other tablets, too. The Kineo is used by hundreds of schools and districts, though the company declined to reveal any names to me.
