Intel, Fuhu uncloak Android tablet for kids
Fuhu Inc., a developer of tablets and applications for children, has revealed a tablet geared to deliver grown-up technology built just for kids. The DreamTab, the result of a collaboration among Fuhu, DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. and Intel Corp., is aimed to deliver fun educational and entertainment experiences that transform the way kids learn, play and grow through technology.
Based on Intel's 64bit enabled Intel Atom Z3740 processor ("Bay Trail"), the DreamTab claims to offer lightning-fast performance, powerful graphics capabilities, long battery life, and rich, immersive educational and entertainment experiences. Combined with an OS layer on Android, it will be a powerful Android-based tablet that includes advances in stylus, touchscreen and NFC technologies.
The DreamTab will include Fuhu's signature Wings Learning System solution and a new feature, the interactive Creative Studio "Be an Artist" program, built exclusively for the DreamTab. Kids will be able to create their favorite DreamWorks characters in an interactive workshop featuring cutting-edge integrated animation tools. Wings Learning System will also work in conjunction with first-of-its-kind offline Bluetooth-enabled workbooks, bringing together offline and online learning experiences.
Intel believes technology can help educators, leaders and school technology professionals prepare students for a lifetime of success. Based on a decade of real-world collaboration, implementation and research, Intel education solutions are designed to help educators inspire students, to support schools in achieving educational excellence, and to enable better manageability by administrators. Intel delivers holistic solutions, including hardware, software, content, infrastructure and professional development, to help educators engage students in learning and to enhance student achievement.
The Intel Atom Z3000 processor series delivers leading performance with long battery life, boasted the firm. Intel added that it offers a smaller footprint and lower power usage, while also enabling double the compute performance and triple the graphics performance compared to the previous-generation Intel Atom processor. It includes Intel Burst Technology 2.0 with four cores, four threads and 2MB L2 cache. This performance allows people to multi-task, consume and create content, and enjoy a rich experience across on their Android device, claimed Intel.
The new tablets will be available starting in June.
