A manufacturer of personal electronics, Oregon Scientific, is entering the tablet market with the MEEP tablet, which is developed specifically for children. The device was unveiled at the 109th American International Toy Fair in New York earlier this year. Oregon Scientific revealed little information, but it will ship with an unspecified version of Android and will have a 7” display. It comes with an accelerometer, WIFi, a full-sized SD card slot and although not yet confirmed, Bluetooth. The Meep is developed for children and as such, Oregon Scientific adds a certain degree of durability.
The tablet offers a rugged design, for example, the rubber silicon sleeve can protect the MEEP from light bumps. The interface is designed to allow children easily download relevant apps, e-books, clips, music and movies. It incorporates an advanced parental control mechanism, which can be adjusted remotely from any device with Internet connection and browsers, such as other tablets, smartphones, laptops and desktops.
