The new Kurio launches this month - THE tablet topping every child’s gadget wish list for Christmas 2012 and the FIRST truly safe, versatile and content rich android tablet for kids, with its own drop safe bumper.
Having read all about the Kurio it sounds fantastic & so easy to use. The added security so you can monitor & block childrens activity is certainly a plus point. You can set up a massive 8 profiles on the Kurio so it makes it a tablet for all the family. Now to get my hands on 1 to have a “testing” session …………. well that sound better than a play doesn’t it?? Lol

Just like a real computer and the higher priced adult tablets, the Kurio from InspirationWorks is a gaming tool, a multimedia and high quality entertainment device, but suitable for the entire family at an affordable price. Currently available in a 7 inch version (with 10 inch launching in September) with capacitive multi-touch screen technology, the Kurio has an intuitive user interface designed and developed specifically for children.
Loved by kids, but, just as importantly, trusted (and coveted!) by parents, the Kurio is unlike any other children’s tablet on the market. With the unique global and session time control feature and CronLab’s web filtering system*, uniquely combined with the parental control features such as block / safe list options and user level configurable filtering settings for up to 8 different profiles, Kurio delivers a leading parental control system. Guy-Edward Waterland from the award winning IT content security provider CronLab, reaffirms, “In addition to great accuracy and coverage, the technology which makes it the safest includes malicious website detection features and as the filtering is undertaken in the cloud, all updates are immediate to all end users.”
The Kurio is also the very first tablet to preload FULL versions of many of the must have Apps, including Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, Fruit Ninja, Doodle Jump and Color & Draw, to name but a few! There are also many fun and educational apps and games, e-books, Alligator Creative Play Apps, videos, and a music player. And if that wasn’t enough, Kurio also has its very own ‘protected’ store too… where many more popular and family friendly apps can be found. However, any android application for tablets and smartphones can also run on the Kurio.
Children will love the option to personalise their tablet and the Kurio can be customised with a full range of licensed accessories available. So, from Peppa Pig to Fireman Sam for young children and Bin Weevils to Fruit Ninja and Angry Birds for older kids, there are drop safe skins, and cases to appeal to every child.
For adults, more stylish Kurio branded accessories will transform the family tablet into something much more sophisticated-looking suitable for use in the office and at meetings.
Awarded “Best of Show” by Gadget Show Live at Toy Fair 2012 - look out for the new Kurio, the only tablet to be loved equally by adults and children.
