My First Tablet- Picking the Right Tablet for Your Child

Kids are known to be very visual and this is exactly why they would rather choose to borrow your tablet than your smartphone. But if your very own tablet is beginning to become a daily tug-of-war game between you and your kid, then it’s no surprise you’re starting to consider buying one for their own use.

So now you are faced with the dilemma of choosing which tablet would be best for your kids. Since the tablet market isn’t exactly targeted for children, finding one that’s easy on the budget may look like an impossible task; after all you don’t want to end up purchasing an expensive one only for your little kid to spill water on it or drop it accidentally. Well, there’s no need to worry now because we have listed here three of the most budget-friendly tablets you could find in the market that we’re sure your kid could enjoy:

1. Alcatel Pixi 4

Take this tablet from its slogan “Everything has changed. For better.” This 3G, 7 inch tablet is designed to change your perception of tablets. Its extra thin, light, and compact physique makes it easy to carry around and hold even by the tiny, delicate hands of a kid. With a powerful quad-core processor, browsing the internet for fun videos to watch together after dinner or playing games on weekends will be a breeze. Dust and splash-proof, you finally have no reason to worry when it’s the young ones time on the tablet. An 8GB ROM +1GB RAM can save all the games you and your kid could enjoy together. We’re sure there’d be enough memory space left to save all the #selfies and family moments you captured through this tablet’s 5.0 megapixel main camera and 2.0 megapixel front camera. In fact, there’s no need for you to fret about storage because you can expand the memory capacity of this tablet through an SD card of up to 32GB. Alcatel Pixi 4 has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G connectivity, and is also voice-enabled in handset mode or through a Bluetooth handset.

2. Alcatel Pixi 3 (7 inch)

Another pocket-friendly tablet, in terms of cost and size, comes from Alcatel in the form of Pixi 3. This 7-inch Wi-Fi tablet has color display and a capacitive touch screen designed for a family bonding done in full, vivid colors. It has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity so you could easily connect on the internet and browse for media you and you kids could appreciate at the same time. This tablet also has the same memory capacity as the Pixi 4 so storing everything you need to make for a fun family time will not come as a struggle. With the ability to connect peripheral devices such as USB keys, external hard disks, digital cameras, and printers, the possibilities for the Alcatel Pixi 3 is as limitless as your children’s imagination.

3. Alcatel Pixi 3 (10 inch)

If you like the 7-inch Pixi 3, then this one’s for you. Alcatel decided to increase the fun with the 10 inch Alcatel Pixi 3- it’s the original Pixi 3 made better! With a much bigger display allowing for 10 points multi-touch, you can finally play games together with your kids in every sense of the word. Download multi-player games and enjoy tapping and swiping its capacitive touch screen TOGETHER. Just like its predecessor, this 10 inch Alcatel Pixi 3 comes with the ability to connect to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, a main (2 MP) and front camera (VGA), and an internal memory of 8GB ROM + 1GB RAM with an expandable storage via micro SD of up to 64 GB.

You see? Finding the right tablet for your kid need not be an excruciating task and it definitely doesn’t have to break the bank. With these Alcatel tablets, you can finally keep you kid entertained with all the games and cartoon shows they want! Just remember that when purchasing a tablet for your kids, there are important factors to consider besides the cost such as durability, app availability, and parental control.
