Tab For My Kid?

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

Eddy is a seven-inch tablet from Metis Learn­ing So­lu­tions op­ti­mised for kids be­tween the age group of two to 10. Metis has in­stalled a cus­tom Eddy launcher, which one has to se­lect as a de­fault launcher to ac­cess the Eddy zone. Once selected, it took five min­utes to load. This was fol­lowed by a set­ting up pro­ce­dure. I had to cre­ate a par­ent pro­file fol­lowed by the kid's pro­file. The user in­ter­face is colourful that will at­tract kids. The kids zone is di­vided into lan­guage, ref­er­ence, our world, cre­ativ­ity and fun, Eddy and maths.

Over­all, this tablet isn't a per­former. The touch re­sponse is sad. At times it fails to re­spond and over­all is very slow. It doesn't seem to run on a 1.6GHz dual core pro­ces­sor with 1GB RAM. Also, this tablet runs on the An­droid 4.2, which one can still live with as it is sup­posed to be used on the Eddy Mode. The only re­lief is that a par­ent can switch to An­droid mode, use it as a reg­u­lar tablet and down­load apps from the Google Play Store. For down­load­ing apps, one can con­nect it to a Wi-Fi net­work. It also comes with a mi­croUSB port but it has a pro­pri­etary charg­ing port. The 2.0 MP rear cam­era and the 0.3 MP front cam­era are not great, ei­ther.
