There is just this thing about the pitter patter of feet that carves a smile on your face, especially so for most first time parents. Then come the terrible twos, where their inquisitive hands will probe the environment around, and who knows the fine day when they chance upon your iPad 2 and a permanent marker pen, wondering why the “paper” they draw on does not crumple like regular paper? Well, if Junior wants his or her own tablet, why not get the PlayBase from Karuma?

This is a highly affordable and durable tablet which measures a surprisingly svelte 9.7mm in thickness – where you get a 7″ capacitive multi-touch display alongside Wi-Fi connectivity and a 1.2GHz Rockchip RK2918 Cortex A8 processor that runs proceedings from within. You will find Google’s Android operating system underneath it, although it will come with a custom skin accompanied by 1GB DDR3 RAM just in case it will receive a software update to touch Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich version numbers.

Not only that, there is a shock-absorbent silicon cover to prevent the display from scratches when not in use, and said cover can even be folded back to function as a kickstand. Would you be willing to fork out £170 for this puppy?
