I recently seen an image on a social network that showed a photo of two phones and the accompanying text was “my sisters phone (she’s 6) – the phone I had when I was 6”
As you can imagine, the sister’s phone was a top of the range handset which we have chosen not to show cause well, you all know why.
Anyway, I digress, the point I was making is that mobile phones and tablets are now what 6-year-old kids want for Christmas. I know from personal experience that my 6-year-old daughter wants Santa to bring her a tablet this year so with that in mind it’s perfectly understandable why OEM’s like Samsung are now aiming top of the range tablets at kids.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids (which is a mouthful for an adult never mind a kid) is available in the UK online from 1st November and in store from 8th November and is likely to cost around £200.
Personally, would I pay this for a 6-year-old? Not likely which is why this year, I’ll be buying a Tesco Huddl for my daughter.
