EE announces 4G child-friendly tablet
4G tablet is first of its kind for kids
Competition in the kid-friendly tablet market has heated up still further with the launch of the EE Robin.
Joining the likes of Amazon's Fire HD Kids Edition and the LeapFrog Epic, EE's family-focused device stakes its own claim for superiority by virtue of its 4G connectivity - a first for a tablet in this space.
The Robin is on sale now in selected stores for £129.99, or for free on a range of monthly plans. It will be available nationwide from 2 November.
As well as the parental controls and hard-to-break design that you would expect from a kids tablet, the Robin also features 'Hopster TV' - a subscription TV streaming app that will put that 4G connection through its paces. Hopster features a range of popular TV shows such as Thomas & Friends and Postman Pat.
The Robin comes with more than 40 pre-loaded games, educational apps and eBooks, including the likes of Fruit Ninja and Berry Rush. The Google Play app store is accessible (with parental approval), meaning thousands of free and paid apps are available for download.
Christopher Traggio, director of connected products, EE said: “Parents know their children are using gadgets more than ever before and the Robin from EE allows kids to not only enjoy the tablet experience but benefit with e-learning as well.
"What’s more the Robin is designed so that parents can have peace of mind that their child is protected online.”
