Amazon has decided to enter the kids tablet market with the new Fire HD Kids Tablet. The company announced the new kids-friendly tablet which is basically the same as its new the new Amazon Fire HD 6 and Fire HD 7, but has the protection of a tough case which protects from accidental drops and scratches.
In addition to the ruggedized case, the tablets also comes with one year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited which gives access to thousand of games, books and educational videos, but most importantly it comes with a 2-year worry-free warranty. This means Amazon will replace the tablet at anytime, no questions asked.
Even-thought they noted “worry-free”, this doesn’t cover “normal” wear and tear or hardware malfunctions. If your child should step on the device, throw it in the swimming pool or drop it, then Amazon will replace it. Just like the new Fire HD 6 and Fire HD 7, its powered by 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and comes in either 8GB or 16GB storage versions.
Amazon plans to sell the Fire HD Kids 6-inch Edition for $149 while the 7-inch model of the Kids Tablet goes for $189.
