Even though the market’s currently populated with slabs such as Archos’ ChildPad or LeapFrog’s LeaPad 2, the race to become the go-to child-friendly tablet could still be considered as wide open. Having previously introduced its FunTab for kids, Ematic’s not exactly a newcomer to this territory, and this time out the company’s looking to build on that with the announcement of a slightly more powerful “Pro” model. Inside the 7-inch, 800 x 480 FunTab Pro, parents and children alike will find an undisclosed 1GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, a taste of Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich and 8GB of onboard storage which can be expanded up to 32GB by way of microSD. Additionally, Ematic’s placing emphasis on the built-in Zoodles features that “create a safe and educational online learning experience for children,” plus the inclusion of pre-loaded apps like Skitch, School Assistant, Cut The Rope and none other than Angry Birds. The FunTab Pro will be available at Walmart (and other retailers) for $150 — and, yes, that includes the colorful, interchangeable faceplates you see in the gallery below.
