The VIGO tablet comes pre-installed with Android 4.0 and includes a host of NEW features.
It has full access to the Google Play Store. Through this app store, you will have access to all the apps available for the Android OS.
Pre-installed with some of NZ's favourite apps for added convenience: NZ Herald, Flicks.co.nz, Facebook for Android, Skype, Angry Birds Free, Twitter, Kindle, Stuff NZ & Kobo.
We recently brought out 3 and 4 year old one of these each from a deal site which was selling them for $99. They came with apps on them already like Facebook, skype, angry birds, twitter and more, hubby and I went though both of them before the kids got to even touch removing apps they don't need which was really easy to do.
Moving about the tablet is easy and simple, even I could do it and I'm not the best on those type of things. Downloading games onto their tablets was easy just connecting both up to my google play account that my android phone is hooked up with and I could put all the games from my phone onto their tablets. Going onto google play on the lappy I could download all the games I wanted for them, buy the ones I wanted and then install them onto the tablets later on.
There are so many games and educational apps for the kids on Android, the games if you buy them are reasonable cheap the most I have paid at the moment for a good educational game is about $4. Both kids have had a play on their tablets with tablets on airplane mode so they can't get onto the wireless. They have found it easy to move from screen to screen, we have put the things they don't need either disabled it or removed it as they get older they can have things back on it.
I read a lot of bad things about these tablets but so far I'm happy as anything with them, they are solid, our kids are real gentle with them and always have them down flat or on their laps to play. Limited time like 30mins at a time, think its a great buy and they enjoy it more than other items we have brought for them. If you watch the deal sites you can get them cheaper.
