Fuhu has taken a number of shots at introducing tablets meant for a niche audience – namely, the young lot, the kids and those in early teens. Whereas the earlier models from the company haven’t gained much traction, it has now dished out Nabi XD, a high-end tablet which costs a mere $250.
The new Nabi XD tablet packs some really impressive hardware. It has a 10-inch display which has a 1366 x 768 resolution and has a quad-core Tegra 3 chip. The machine runs Android Jelly Bean as well as NFC, which is indeed remarkable since not many tablets support NFC.
What is most extra-ordinary is that with all these specifications, this tablet costs only $250! Other tablets in the market, with similar specs, cost nearly double of that. So the price-point of Nabi XD certainly makes it an interesting option for many.
The 16 GB version of the tablet is available for $249 whereas the 32 GB version costs $349. Fuhu claims that the tablet supports console quality gaming and comes with modified parental controls to ensure that parents are able to well monitor the tablet-activity of their kids.
You can also get a pad-folio together with the tablet, effectively turning it into a tablet-cum-notebook. According to the CEO of Fuhu, Jim Mitchell, “Nabi XD features the most powerful specifications and brilliant display of the nabi tablet family. We are excited about what these new features bring to gaming and content. nabi XD represents a real transition in personal portable computing with an introduction of an Android-based productivity and gaming device.”
