The Nabi Big tablet line takes Android tablets for kids a step further than the typical 8 or 10 inch screen. These TV-sized touchscreen devices come in 20 or 24 inch sizes and are designed for family-friendly games, movies and apps.
Fuhu, the California-based company behind Nabi, made a big splash last year with the DreamTab, which was designed in partnership with DreamWorks Animation. This year the Nabi Big is the next evolution. While the internal specs are typical of an Android device -- quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM — it's the large displays that really set this tablet apart.
Unlike a standard tablet, the Nabi Big has a removable frame that doubles as a carrying handle and folds into various angles for desktop or reclining table-top use. The frame also provides a convenient place to attach a keyboard or mouse.
Aside from the frame, this device looks like a conventional tablet with a 3.5mm audio jack and four nabi connector ports on the sides. These ports are used for add-ons on other Nabi devices, but there's no word yet on what will be available for this model.
The Nabi Big runs on the latest version of Android, which is optimized for multi-touch gestures and a lag-free experience. It comes with a full suite of kid-friendly software including a Story Time app, Chores List and Game Room. The included Disney content is also a welcome addition, with 6 full length Disney episodes (Phineas and Ferb, Jake and the Never Land Pirates) and 50 Disney music tracks.
