LeapFrog FLY Fusion Pentop

LeapFrog today helped prep late primary and high school students for school with a new version of the FLY Fusion, its pen-based computer. The improved version quadruples the onboard memory and now easily connects to a PC to transfer files over USB. Kids using the Fusion now have much more incentive to use a specially-designed paper to write and store digital notes they can bring up later for homework or in Microsoft Word format on their computer, according to the company. Students further have access to a basic calculator and an MP3 player to keep themselves entertained and working without extra devices.

Learning programs stored on the Fusion have also been improved to help students refine their skills in math, writing, and languages such as French or Spanish independently of what their normal school may be teaching. The courses themselves range in price between $2 and $30 depending on length. LeapFrog notes that the pentop itself remains at the earlier $80 price and should be available now.
