Fuhu Prepares Massive Android Tablets For Kids, Adults

With the aims of “bringing families together” and creating the “true centerpieces of the digital home”, Fuhu have updated their Nabi Big Tab lineup of Android tablets with 32, 43, 55, and 65” models, adding to the existing 20 and 24” SKUs. Yes, Fuhu now have the unique distinction of selling HDTV-sized tablets – you can even use them as HDTVs, thanks to their HDMI inputs.

 

 

Of course, the real purpose for these things is to provide collaborative platforms for creativity-related apps and games for kids. Fuhu also mention a preloaded “cooking, recipe, shopping and productivity suite”, suggesting a place for the Big Tab in kitchens and offices as all-in-one media and productivity hubs. All of the software runs atop the firm's Blue Morpho UI skin and Android 4.4 KitKat.

 

 

As for specs, Nvidia SoCs continue their presence within Fuhu's Big Tabs. The 32 and 43” models use the quad-core Tegra K1 chip with 2GB of RAM and 1080p screen resolution, with the larger units using the new, graphics-boosted Tegra X1; 4GB of RAM, and 4K Ultra HD screens. Connectivity includes WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC.

I've asked Fuhu for availability and pricing info and will update this article with the results. If nothing else, you can expect the new Nabi Big Tabs to be priced similarly to equivalently-sized HDTVs. The existing 20 and 24” models can be had for $450 and $550 USD, respectively.
