Samsung today unveiled a new 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 designed especially for kids.

“It’s no secret that kids are using technology more than ever before,” said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics. “We saw an opportunity to create a device just for kids that provides them with an intuitive, fun and kid-friendly user experience filled with rich, interactive and educational content that parents will love.”

Samsung GALAXY Tab 3 Kids comes pre-loaded with top ranked kid’s apps and brand new Kid’s Store aimed at driving the educational possibilities of technology for kids. Pre-loaded content includes educational, games, entertainment and e-book apps. The tablet also offers parents the ability to select the apps they want their kids to have access to using the Application Manager.

The tablet also includes a Time Management feature that allows parents to set specific time periods for use. When the designated use time is up, a password protected lock screen appears, requiring a parent or adult to enter the password to unlock the device. This tool will help parents ensure the time their children spend on smart devices is balanced.

The Samsung GALAXY Tab 3 Kids is powered by a 1.2GHz dual processor and 1GB RAM. It has a 3 megapixel front-facing camera and 1.3 megapixel rear-facing camera. A Kids Case featuring a kids-friendly grip and multiple stand options will also be available for the device. The case also comes equipped with an easy-to-grip C Pen.

The Samsung GALAXY Tab 3 Kids will be available in Korea in early September and subsequently available across China, Europe, U.S., Africa, South America and South East Asia. Pricing has not yet been announced.

Really??? They say its preloaded with top games, but there's not that much in their App Store, and only including Top-Rated games for kids??? This is such a cheesy rip-off

Very good idea from Samsung indeed. It is aiming for kids market which will affect somehow the current market. Now let's hope Apple comes out with something to beat/compare Samsung GS4 FEATURES.

You mean a feature like Buddy Share? Found on the s3 & the s4?? It tags the person in the pic and then gives you the option to send it right that person
