SNS Network together with Intel Malaysia, and Myteach Sdn. Bhd. recently launched a tablet specifically made for children. Called the JOI KinderTab, it is an Android tablet that is built for pre-school learning and is loaded with educational content.
The JOI KinderTab features a 7” IPS display with a resolution of 1024 x 600. It is powered by an Intel Atom Processor Z3735G with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card slot. Other specs include 2MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 2600mAh battery, Wi-Fi connectivity, and runs on Android 4.4 out of the box.
The specifications may not impress, but should be sufficient for what it’s supposed to be – a tablet to help children learn. It is “rugged and child-proof “, and has an optional Bumpee case to protect the device. Content wise, it is equipped with educational content based on the National Preschool Curriculum, with educational apps for K1 (age 5) and K2 (Age 6).
It covers subjects such as English and Science, Bahasa Malaysia, Mathematics, with Chinese in the coming months. For parents, teachers and guardians, there is also a performance tracking and reporting tool, as well as a built-in parental control to limit kid’s access to other content.
Retailing at RM499 (RM528.94 with 6% GST), JOI KinderTab is available immediately at Krista Kindergartens, AEON departmental stores, over 50 resellers nationwide, as well as online channels such as MyTeach360.com, Gloo.com.my and more.
