Nabi 2 tablet launching in the UK – Tegra 3 and ICS… for kids

An updated version of the kid-friendly Nabi Android tablet is set to launch in the UK soon, with the Nabi 2 scheduled to go on sale from October 22nd for a price of £149. As you can tell by the pics, this one’s aimed at the kiddie market, packed with educational apps and sold in a chunky, protective case.

Although with a Tegra 3 chipset inside and running Android 4.0, we suspect quite a few dads won’t be too happy to see their kids using such powerful hardware.


The Nabi 2 features a 7″ capacitive display running at 1024×600 resolution, 1GB of RAM, an SD card slot, plus a front-facing camera so strange men can video chat with your children through the internet. Nothing can go wrong there, eh?
