An education startup firm, Metis Learning has come up with an educational tablet dubbed Eddy G70 for kids. This tablet is the sequel to the Eddy that was launched earlier this year. The latest educational tablet comes pre-installed with over 160 learning applications and it is based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean along with the firm’s proprietary Athena OS on top that is focused mainly for children. Metis has joined hands with Amazon and Intel for this tablet to make it interesting.
When it comes to specifications, the Metis Eddy G70 flaunts a 7 inch display with a screen resolution of 1024×600 pixels and equips a dual-core Intel Atom Z2520 processor paired with 1 GB of RAM for decent multi-tasking. The tablet is bundled with an ample 16 GB of default storage capacity that can be further expanded externally by another 32 GB using a micro SD card.
The slate from Metis also comes with dual 2 MP camera sensors at the front and back to meet the imaging requirements of the users. There is an in-built microphone and 3.5 mm audio jack as well. Other aspects of the Eddy G70 include Wi-Fi, 3G via dongle, mini HDM out, USB OTG and a 2,800 mAh battery.
The pre-loaded applications that are bundled in the slate will be focusing on developing over 300 key skills for children in the age group of 2 to 10 years. The firm has partnered with Google’s educational app developers including Intellijoy, Tipitap, iStoryBooks and others. Moreover, Eddy G70 uses a screen that is approved by the ophthalmologists and hence, it ensures UV ray protection and low eye strain as compared to the other displays. As it is a kids tablet, it is scratch proof and resistant to impact with a hardness level of 9H. The implementation of superior quality food grade silicone bumper makes it drop safe preventing it from damage due to accidental falls.
The Metis Eddy G70 is priced at Rs 9,999 as mentioned above, but it can be bought at a best buy price of Rs 8,499 from online retailer Amazon along with freebies worth Rs 4,500 as an introductory offer.
