Samsung’s eagerly anticipated Galaxy Tab 3 Kids tablet will be available to buy from this Friday, priced at £199.
The tablet will initially be available to buy online only, and will roll out to the High Street next Friday (November 8th).
Toys R Us, Argos, Shop Direct, Dixons, JLP and Asda have already committed to stocking it.
With a 1.2GHz dual processor and 1GB RAM, the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids features Samsung’s brand new Kids Store, as well as pre-loaded content including educational, games, entertainment and e-book apps.
Whilst designed to appeal to kids, the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids also boasts functions that will appeal to parents, including a time management feature that can be used to monitor use by locking the tablet once the designated time is up.
In addition, Samsung’s Application Manager allows parents to select apps that their kids can access.
Simon Stanford, Vice President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland said: “We’re seeing technology become ever more popular with children, and wanted to create a tablet that provides kids with interactive and educational content with the added benefit of giving parents control over their children’s tab use.
"Parents played a huge part in the design process, and as a result the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids is a unique product that is both a fun and exciting piece of technology for kids to use and a device that parents can trust.”
