What Others Are Saying About tabeo e2
Customers have been singing the praises of the tabeo e2’s improvement on the previous model; as well as the faster operating system, it has double the storage space (4 GB), is bluetooth-enabled, flaunts ‘over 16 million colors’ (we didn’t even know there were 16 million colors) and is loaded with more free apps. A main highlight for many is the additional microSD card which increases the memory capacity to a gigantic 64 GB.
One customer was impressed with the upgraded customizable parental settings; this allows parents to track the installation of new apps, block the use of certain apps and limit the time a child spends on one app.
Another customer was happy to find that the new tablet is bluetooth-enabled. This means that it can be connected to bluetooth accessories and wireless speakers. She also admitted (somewhat guiltily) that the tablet is not just a hit with her kids – preloaded games include the hugely popular Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja and Operation Math.
So, what’s the verdict? Overall, the tabeo e2 seems to be a bigger, sturdier and faster version of the previous tabeo. A great Christmas gift for this year, this versatile tablet is 100% child-friendly (and child-proof!). It’s easy, quick and safe to use, engaging and educational, and the choice from 1000‘s of apps means you can customize your child’s learning and entertainment experience.
