We're a busy family and we’re always on the go, keeping the kids entertained while they wait for an appointment or are on a road trip is a challenging task. Recently I've been turning to technology and when you have a rough-and-tumble four-year-old boy, it puts any device to the test!
Our latest kid-friendly test is:
The Acer Iconia Tab 10 A3-A20FHD with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4, Corning’s toughest cover glass yet!
A tablet loaded with kid-friendly educational games and shows comes in handy more than you would think. From throwing the device in my purse when I know waiting is going to stretch their patience or tossing it into the backseat on a road trip we need a tablet that can stand up to the ultimate family test!
As a parent a few of the criteria I look for in a tablet is the educational applications and durability of the tablet, as well as any additional costs for downloads or cases.
In laboratory tests, Gorilla Glass 4 survives up to 80% of the time when dropped from 3 feet high, and was up to 2x tougher than competitive glass designs.
With my two kids Gorilla Glass 4 was pushed to the limit a few times with a couple minor drops. And then there was the time I dropped it on the driveway when I attempted to make one trip into the house with all the groceries and the kids’ belongings. It was one of those don't try this at home moments when I picked it up and found the glass unharmed.
Needless to say Gorilla Glass 4 takes care of my worries on purchasing an extra case and handling the Iconia Tab 10 with delicate hands. There are a ton of neat features we love including:
- 10.1″ Full HD display
- Drop- resistant Gorilla Glass 4 with an anti-fingerprint coating!
- 5MP rear-facing Full HD camera and 2MP front-facing HD webcam
- Budget-friendly with a price point of $249.99
- The Acer Cloud Portal app is pre-installed allowing easy syncing and backup across multiple devices
We were in luck The Iconia Tab 10 is Android based so we already had a big list of apps we wanted to try out! A few we fell in love with are:
- Dr.Suess – we opted for the paid version and love how the kids can read along at their own pace and get help on trouble words, or let the app read to them
- Jumble Word Puzzle – with multiple difficulty levels you can pick one that suits your kids the best
- Cut the Rope 2 – more for fun
- Skype – so the kids can stay connected to their family near and far
- Where's My Perry? – I am surprised at how much thought goes into this game and find the answer to physics-based puzzles
There are a ton more apps that you and your family will love from a simple e-reader to movies. The only downside is both kids want their own tablet now!
From playing games, reading books or practicing their math skills The Iconia Tab 10 offers that and durability thanks to Gorilla Glass 4!
