Verizon GizmoTab targets the little ones

verizon-gizmotabMonkey see, monkey do, or so the saying goes. We more or less know just how it is like with our younger ones, as to how they tend to imitate us adults in all that we say and do, and perhaps even think. Well, surely you would have come across one time in your life when you were surfing through your inbox on your iPad when a young ‘un stopped right in front of you and asked in the most heart melting manner, ”Can I borrow your iPad, pretty please?” with an accompaniment of fluttering eyelids? Well, perhaps you feel that now is the time for some in your family’s brood to own a tablet of their own, and the Verizon GizmoTab might just be able to do the trick.

 Verizon intends to change the way that our children’s education work by introducing more fun into the scenario. The Verizon GizmoTab is an exclusive tablet that targets the next generation, touted to jumpstart your child’s learning experience right out of the box. When the GizmoTab is activated on Verizon, you will also be on the receiving end of unlimited access to 300 premium learning apps that have been picked out by educational experts beforehand: among them include names that we have all come to know and love, such as Crayola, DreamWorks Animation, Hasbro, The Jim Henson Company, Highlights for Children, HiT Entertainment, National Geographic, Sesame Workshop, and Toca Boca among others, for free. Talk about a $600 bonus right from the moment the Verizon GizmoTab is turned on!

Targeting the little ones age 3 to 8, the apps on the Verizon GizmoTab will be based on key subject areas, including English language arts, math, science, critical thinking and creativity. It will be powered by a beefy Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor that runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, has 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes, an 8MP shooter at the back with a 5MP camera in front. The Verizon GizmoTab will retail for $79.99 with new two-year activation. Certainly this is going to be of far more educational value than a Barbie tablet!
