Remember the LeapPad educational tablet designed for kids? Who would’ve thought it would sell like hot cakes? Well LeapFrog Enterprises, the company behind the LeapPad tablet has just announced that the LeapPad that became available for pre-sale at major retail websites on June 29th has officially been sold out. If you’d like to get your hands on one of these nifty tablets, you would have to wait until late August when stock will be resupplied.
Even though no sales figures were released, we’re pretty sure they didn’t sell iPad-like quantities of the tablet – but it’s good to know that there is a market for educational/children-targeted tablets. In case you’re not up to speed about the LeapPad, it is a learning tablet designed for kids aged 4 and up running on LeapFrog’s own proprietary operating system with its own apps as well. The tablets retail for $99.99 and will be available from major retailers once there is supply again. Any of you picked up these tablets for yourself or your kids?
