Amazon of US has launched Fire HD Kids Edition in two sizes – 6 and 7 inch displays. These tablets have been built incorporating the specific needs of the kids and their parents.
Fire HD Kids Edition is priced at $149 for 6 inch tablet and $189 for 7 inch. They are available now for pre-order at www.amazon.com/kids-edition-tablet.
Fire HD Kids Edition has three salient features :
- Fire HD Kids Edition comes with 2-year free guarantee. If the kids break it, Amazon will repalce it with new one.
- The Kids Edition includes a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited so that kids get unlimited access to 5,000 books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games–at no additional cost. It also offers innovative parental controls that encourage learning before play and that help manage screen time. With FreeTime, you select all of the content your kids can see, and you can limit your kids’ screen time by content type–for example, you may choose to limit videos and games, but make reading time unlimited.
- The Kids Edition features a quad-core processor, a vivid HD display, front- and rear-facing cameras, Dolby Digital audio, and access to Amazon’s unmatched content ecosystem of over 33 million movies, TV shows, songs, books, and Android apps and games.
“Fire HD Kids Edition is a real tablet, not a toy,” said Peter Larsen, Vice President, Amazon Devices. “Kids break things, so we added a 2-year, no-questions-asked, worry-free guarantee. Plus, you’ll never be surprised by a bill–it comes with a year of FreeTime Unlimited, which includes over 5,000 books, movies, TV episodes, educational apps, and games at no additional cost.”
