Samsung launches Galaxy Tab 3 Kids for, well, kids Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids, a colorful model of the company's latest tablet.
The Tab comes with parental controls and pre-loaded content and apps for children.

As can be expected, the 7-inch tablet will not feature high-end specs. The device has 1024 x 600 resolution, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. On the backside there is a 3MP camera and a 1MP camera upfront for video chatting.

There is 8GB of internal storage but a microSD slot if you need more.

Samsung confirms there is no LTE connectivity but of course there is 2.4/5GHz dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. The device runs on Android 4.1, but Samsung has nearly made all stock remnants disappear with their own user interface overlay.

One example of a parent-friendly feature is a time management setting that lets parents set how long the tablet can be used during a day. After the period, a password-protected lock screen appears, blocking the screen until it is unlocked. The app store is also "child-friendly," and will block mature rated content and games.

The tablet is expected to sell for $179-$199.
