You've probably handed your tablet or smart phone to your children to entertain them more times than you'd care to think about. But what if you could give your kids a tablet or phone of their own that actually helps them learn, following a real educational curriculum? That's what Vinci has in mind with its new Vinci Tab MV.
The Tab MV is a 5.5-inch Android tablet and unlocked phone; supported networks are GSM- or WCDMA-based, including AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. The device that can run a variety of educational apps geared toward kids under five years old. It's pre-loaded with several apps and six music videos, and Vinci offers a "safe app" library with over 800 titles. You can add Vinci's more formal curriculum for $69 to $129.
The device also includes a camera and a case, and it's built with tempered glass that the company says can withstand spills. And the safe Vinci environment protects your kids from violent apps, commercials, and in-app purchases. The Vinci Tab MV retails for $250.
