The XO Tablet features a high-resolution screen, dual-core processor, and the latest Android operating system.

Parental Controls Parental Controls

Parental dashboards track usage and learning styles, allowing parents to better understand their child’s development.

Educational Curriculum Educational Curriculum

Lessons draw from the top names in education, including Oxford University and Discovery Communication.

Bilingual Bilingual

All content is available in both English and Spanish. With one tap, users can easily switch between languages.

Features XO Tablet Bilingual

Before the age of 12 every child can naturally learn multiple languages. To foster this ability the XO tablet comes with full content in both English and Spanish. All of the Dreams offer their apps, books, games, videos and other content in both languages with just the press of one icon.

XO Tablet E Book Reader

Many studies have shown that reading improves overall academic performance and learning. The XO Tablet has an e-book reader designed especially for children to foster an appreciation for the fun of learning.

Special features include the ability to look up the meaning of any word and to translate text from one language to another for non-native English speakers. All of the free e-books on the XO tablet come alive with this special e-book reader.

XO Tablet Dashboard

One of the untapped areas to improve child learning is to help parents to more actively participate and guide their children’s tablet usage. The XO Tablet comes with three dashboards to help parents better understand their children’s intellectual development.

One dashboard captures usage in terms of the famous Gardner Learning Styles, another shows which Dreams are the most popular and the third shows usage by type of content–apps, games, and books.

XO Tablet Journal

While parental controls are a requirement for any modern connected device, sometimes it is more helpful to review more detailed usage of the tablet. The XO Journal feature captures every usage by the child of the tablet, including web pages visited, apps, games, downloads and files and documents created.

Android Android

Tablets are always a family device shared by children, parents and even grandparents. The XO Tablet is the perfect solution: a full-fledged Android tablet with Google Play for older users and the educational tablet with its own app store for children. Press one icon and the tablet changes to match the user. Parents set controls to limit child access to the Android version.

XO Tablet Parental Controls Parental Controls

Everyone wants children to explore the rich content of the Internet. However, we need to protect children and provide age appropriate content. The XO Tablet allows the parent to set up password protected user privileges for up to three children and to limit access to the Internet, app store purchases and talk and chat features. As the child matures these privileges can be changed.

What’s in the Box?

Much better designed than the original XO laptops, but durability is an issue We were front-line adopters of the original XO laptop computers, which my children did enjoy using for awhile but got less use out of than I would have liked due to the fact that those laptops ran more slowly, “did less” (ie, had fewer interesting programs to run), and had far less versatility than the other computers in the household. In short, while they were fantastic devices compared to having no computer at all, they were frustrating to use for kids accustomed to ‘regular’ computers. That design weakness does not appear to be a problem with the new tablets: this is a fully functional tablet, capable of doing anything you’d ordinarily do with a tablet computer, at a very reasonable price. Parental access to full Android mode is quite simple, and though we had a bit of a learning curve, my 10 year old was downloading apps from Google Play, learning to access the internet, and in general making full use of the machine’s internet-related capabilities as well as the plentiful…

Review primarily from an adult perspective Note for those who know about OLPC: Do not confuse this with OLPC’s earlier tablet which was discontinued. This does not have the mesh communication capability and you can’t charge it by winding a crank. This is actually a standard Android tablet which has a custom interface (and apps) optimized for children.Pros:* The green “bumper” cover is stylish and useful for carrying/protecting* Lots of apps which almost all work off internet (internet not required)* Full Android tablet with dual cameras, microphone, HDMI, audio out port* HD video is crystal clear and smooth* 7 inches is a nice small and useable footprintCons:* Built-in speakers are about the worst I’ve ever heard on a tablet (at least with “bumper” case installed)* Google account settings for adult user might “slop over” to children’s accounts* Switching between accounts isn’t easy (just shut off, then restart, then choose account)* No…

Will Grow With Your Child What a pleasure it is to review the XO Tablet. My daughter has been begging for a children’s tablet since forever and she finally got her wish.WHAT IT COMES WITHThis tablet comes with a silicone case for impact protection. There was a film on the screen, which I took off. I always take those things off because they bother me.There’s a green charging cable and a green USB wall adapter. Normally, I put those away and use one of my many micro USB to USB A cables and my USB hub, but you’ll need to save the green cable and use it. Charging works well with any hub or generic cable, but I found that only the green cable works when I need to transfer files to and from the computer. It’s a good thing it’s green, so I can find it easily.SETUPThe tablet came to me fully charged. Setup is as easy as turning it on. I was guided through setting up my daughter’s profile. I have my own profile, she has…
