27th May 2013, Dubai: Kurio 7 launches this month in the Middle East - THE tablet topping every child's gadget wish list for Christmas 2012 and the FIRST truly safe, versatile and content rich android tablet range for kids
Just like higher priced adult tablets, the Kurio 7 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, the device adds depth to an evergrowing range; 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 KurioGenius™ parental control features such as block / safe list options and user level configurable filtering settings for up to 8 different profiles, the Kurio range 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 range is also the very first tablets 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 Bin Weevils to Fruit Ninja and Angry Birds 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 range, the only tablets to be loved equally by adults and children.
The Kurio 7 is priced from AED 899 (SRP) available exclusively at Early Learning Centre outlets across KSA, Oman, Qatar and UAE.
*The state of the art web filtering service provided by CronLab to Kurio is delivered through professional cloud based technology in order to specifically off-load the demanding filtering process from the tablets themselves. This advanced setup thus enables the use of an extensive database of over 450 million URLs covering 6 billion web pages and in nearly 200 languages, which is updated in real-time, by artificial intelligence-based categorization systems and by a large team of multilingual web analysts performing statistical quality assurance on a 24/7 basis. All these URLs have been grouped into main categories and sub-categories which can be used to define a user's web access rights, the default web access policies being pre-set by age ranges
