Last year VTech proved that they were ahead of the curve for debuting the Vtech Flip aka VTech Reader which was the first of its kind – a dedicated eReader for kids. So we’re not surprised at all that they would attempt to make a tablet for kids too! The new InnoPad features a 5” color touchscreen LCD, a tilt-sensor for game control, a microphone, as well as a USB port, SD card slot and a headphone jack. It is housed inside a rugged yet compact kid friendly design for easy portability.
Kids can unlock the interactive and animated reading, educational gaming and creative magic of the InnoPad in different ways via the extensive library of cartridges that are in the works, or they can download interactive e-books and learning games from VTech’s Learning Lodge Navigator. There is also an integrated MP3 player for listening to songs, as well as a video player. Over 100 titles will be available for download by the end of the year.
The InnoPad is aimed at kids ages 4 to 9 years and will retail for $79.99, while cartridges will retail for $24.99 each. Expect to see the VTech InnoPad make its way to Walmart, Target, etc. in the Fall.
