The new Nabi Jr and Nabi XD tablet devices for kids and tweens respectively are now both available from Best Buy. Both the tablet devices were launched a few months ago for $100 and $250 for the Jr and XD versions of Nabi and offer an attractive proposition to both kids and their parents.
The Nabi Jr offers a 5 inch 800 x 480 pixel display and is built around an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core chip. It runs Android 4.0 and offers 4 GB of internal memory. The tablet is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled and comes with a rugged casing to ensure better survival in the hands of its intended clients. However, while the OS has been tweaked to allow for easy and safe operations by the kids, things could be slightly less appealing as the tablet can only access the Nabi app store, while the Google Play Store remains off bounds.
Things are a lot better with the Nabi XD, which justifies its $250 price tag. The tablet offers a 10.1 inch display packing in 1366 x 768 pixels. Providing the grunt is the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core chip coupled to a 1 GB RAM along with 16 GB of internal memory. The Nabi XD runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. There is an optional case with a built in keyboard as well that can transform the tablet into a laptop to cater for some serious work by the tweens.
