7-inch Wonder

Kurio 7With school slates costing upwards of $500, the Kurio 7 is like a breath of fresh air. The tablet uses the latest Android 4.0 software, has a 7-inch screen that can show 800 by 480 resolution and has a pair of cameras. It connects to the school’s network via WiFi and includes 1GB of RAM and 4GB of storage space, which can be beefed up by 32GB with a microSD card. The slate comes with drop-safe edge bumpers, is set up ad-free and the teacher can control what the student sees and – more importantly – doesn’t see. Best part: Kurio 7 costs $150.

The Kurio has been the best thing yet for my little sister. She can play games and safely surf the net from home, and access educational tools at school and for homework. The best part is that you can set how much time it can be used in a day, so she can't play games forever on a school day. It's a great gadget at a great price!

really great product-my brother sent one to my family for my 5 year old son's birthday, and it's really been a great addition to our household. not only can little Rex learn and play age appropriate content as much as i allow, but the older kids have been using it just as much (including my husband!) the fact that the parental controls are user-specific is a great feature and i like that it has such comprehensive web filtering for safe surfing :)
