The second generation XO tablet is 10-inch device designed for older school children.
Yves Behar’s fuseproject has come out with a new version of the XO Tablet, a tablet featuring a child-friendly interface and cover.
The first XO Tablet, which was released last year, was created for young children and had a main screen that was organized by topic or “dreams” instead of apps.
The second generation 10-inch XO Tablet comes with a traveling stand and a detachable Bluetooth keyboard. It is designed for older school children who require an “adult-sized” screen and full-size keyboard for typing. Like its predecessor, it was developed in collaboration with One Laptop Per Child.
Powered by Android and featuring the XO-Learning System and content, the new XO Tablet has over 12 hours of battery life and is the only Google-certified and multilingual tablet for kids. The XO Tablet was designed to be easy to use across cultures and countries — which is in line with the project’s mission of providing children all over the globe with easy access to education through technology.
The 10-inch XO Tablet comes with a $199 retail price and is being planned for distribution to developed and developing countries.
