New range of Android-powered Kurio devices revealed
Kurio has had it fair share of successes in the past, where the best-selling, award-winning Kurio 7 family tablet is the most recent one in our memories. Well, they have just introduced a spanking new range of Kurio Android-powered devices for families – especially those with kids. The models in this new range would be the Kurio Touch 4s which happens to be a 4” handheld device, where the Kurio 7s happens to be a 7” tablet, and the Kurio 10s that will obviously be a 10” tablet that is available exclusively at Toys “R” Us stores around the country.
The new family of Kurio devices are next-generation, Wi-Fi enabled devices that will come with the latest technology (although that is relative, depending on how you approach it), running on the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, with a comprehensive Kurio proprietary suite of parental controls. Parents need not worry about this Kurio range arriving empty handed, as it will arrive preloaded with tons of free family-friendly content.
It has been said that the Kurio family of products will be the ideal solution for families with kids, where kids will be able to enjoy everything that they have ever wanted in a tablet, and parents too, can heave a sigh of relief knowing that their kids would remain safe in their online activities. Apart from Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, there will also be the inclusion of a multi-core processor, a doubling of its internal storage space to 8GB, as well as enhanced parental controls that will boast of even stronger Internet filtering, additional granular app usage controls, and easier to use time limits – all the while being able to maintain up to eight completely separate user profiles.
The Kurio Touch 4s, Kurio 7s tablet and Kurio 10s tablet will retail for $99.99, $149.99, and $249.99, respectively, from August this year onwards – except for the Kurio 4s and Kurio 7s which are said to be available at retailers everywhere from September 2013.
