With the arrival of the Kurio Smart, it brings an addition to the already ballooning kids tablet market. Many manufacturers tend to pop up onto the scene with underwhelming devices. Many of them do this because they might think that their main audience are kids and, well, they may not know about better tech but that’s not a good enough reason to bring out tablets with subpar quality. That being said, can Kurio’s device change the way we look at kids tablets?
Kids and Their Parents Are Going to Like the Kurio Smart
To start with the Kurio Smart, the design has a folio-style keyboard. From the onset, this feature already sets it apart from most children’s tablets out in the market. It feels more “grown-up” than those encased entirely of protective rubber. The inclusion of the keyboard can be very helpful for children. There are so many class-related works that make use of the keyboard in modern times that it can sometimes be a requirement to practice with this skill.
To start, the Kurio Smart Tablet already comes with Windows 10 right out of the box. There is a micro USB slot that can expand the memory to up to 32GB, but it’s a little frustrating to know that there’s no regular USB port for purposes such as saving and sharing homework.
Nonetheless, there is still the tablet’s ability to set limits as to what features can be used and when, which can be a parent’s ultimate goal for lending their children with tech. But it does not mean that kids won’t be happy. The Smart tablet comes with pre-loaded games which they can reward themselves right after they finish homework.
There are a lot of entertainment features that will keep kids, and even their parents, happy. After all, children won’t be interested with a tablet that won’t offer any kind of entertainment. For one, the Smart tablet offers a robust Wi-Fi connection that will allow streaming and online access. Alongside that feature is the standard games that come pre-installed with the device. There are also game titles that offer motion-gesture controls like that of the Xbox Kinect.
But the question is, will you buy your kids the Kurio Smart? If you don’t mind giving them an educational and entertaining tablet that is priced at the top-end of the market, then go ahead. If you no intention of letting your children borrow your Android or iOS tablet anytime soon, then do consider getting the Smart tablet for them.
