So, we have heard that Polaroid looks set to open up retail stores later this year, and one thing’s for sure – these brick-and-mortar stores are definitely going to have their fair share of hardware on parade. In fact, the famous photography company is about to jump aboard the Android-powered bandwagon with a 7” tablet in the works. Adults would want to steer clear of this $149.99 tablet though, as it has been specially designed for kids. The tablet itself will be accompanied by a suite of apps which were specially programmed for kids, among them include Kids Cam, Music Studio and Draw, which allows your little ones to remain occupied while expending their creative powers by snapping photos, composing music and drawing out their imagination.

The Polaroid kids tablet know exactly just which target market it caters for, which is why it comes with innovative side bumpers that help offer adequate amounts of protection, coupled with parental controls that will ensure added protection for the little ones. Dr. Seuss titles will also be pre-loaded to get your little ones hooked on reading, now how about that? Hardware specifications include a 7” screen with WVGA resolution, a 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 8GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, and a 2-megapixel camera at the back, running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with a 3500mAh battery in tow.
