Child safety-certified tablet gets significant price drop, Wi-Fi for the first time

Vinci has introduced its second learning tablet meant for kids, the 7-inch Tab II. It uses an unspecified version of Android that's heavily customized and powered by a 1.2GHz Cortex A8 processor. Two variations will be offered; one with Wi-Fi and one without.

The touchscreen has 800x480 resolution, and there is 8GB of storage space onboard, though it can be expanded thanks to a microSD memory card slot. Educational apps are preloaded, along with interactive storybooks, and animated music videos, with more available for purchase. They can be loaded onto the tablet with a microUSB port.

The original version of the tablet didn't have Wi-Fi and was priced at $389. The Tab II Wi-Fi costs $249, while the Wi-Fi-less version is priced at $199. The child safety-certified tablet is already arriving at some retailers, with Walmart, Toys 'R' Us, Yoyo.com, and Diapers.com expected to get it next month.
