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.

    Much better designed than the original XO laptops; excellent value for the price!, August 8, 2013

    This review is from: XO 7-inch Kids Tablet XO-780 (Personal Computers)

    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 built-in apps within a matter of 15-20 minutes.

    As far as versatility goes, I can definitely see this device being used by the entire family. It’ll be handy for the adults to access email, Facebook, and so forth while visiting relatives. It could also serve as a source for the younger kids to watch Netflix videos on demand — that is, when they aren’t playing the many, many, many apps available to them, which they certainly seem to prefer so far to passive viewing, as I had hoped they would. The 15 month old is too young to get anything out of it yet, but I expect that by the time he’s 2 even he will be able to manage play with some of the simpler apps, with adult assistance of course. I expect that even my 15 year old will make use of the device on occasion; though most of the preloaded apps are of course aimed at younger children, she’s interested in the artistic options in particular, and of course will also be able to make use of downloadable apps through Google Play as well. I’m also pleased by how much there is to do on the tablet even when we’re out of wifi range — for instance, in the car. (I haven’t purchased the available car charger, and in fact probably won’t need to since it charges via USB and our main family vehicle has a USB charging port, but I was pleased to notice that there is one available — clearly they’ve realized that long car trips will be one very excellent use for the device.) All in all, a great family device, though I’d particularly recommend it for families with children from 3-12 or so.

    (Update: I was wrong about the 15 month old being too young to get anything out of it yet. He saw his older sister playing a music app which plays different notes as they are touched, and you could practically see him thinking to himself, ‘I can do that!’ He immediately snuggled up with us and started trying to play it. We gave him a turn, and sure enough, he understood perfectly how to make it work and had tremendous fun using it. There are a few other apps he’ll likely enjoy as well, though again, he’s considerably younger than the device’s target age.)

    My 4 year old was completely enchanted by the first app she tried, a coloring program, and for the first 24 hours was uninterested in trying anything except using the touch screen ‘paint’ selector to color a myriad of cartoon drawings of princesses and save them ‘to send to grandma.’ I’m hoping to interest her in exploring more of the device’s capabilities soon, but for now, it’s primarily worth noting that even though we’re primarily a keyboard-and-mouse using family and she had no significant previous exposure to touch screen devices, it took her next to no time to learn to access what she wanted to do and play with it thoroughly easily, including swiping the color choices strip to reveal more fine gradations in color, turning the music for the program on and off, zooming in and out, and saving or deleting her work as desired. (I haven’t yet found a way to send the finished pictures to grandma, but I expect it’s probably possible.) (Update: the second day she was indeed ready to start trying out other apps, and we quickly found numerous ones that interested her. Despite her young age she was quickly able to figure out how to do a great many things, and with adult and older-sib assistance was readily able to learn to do even more.)

    Positive details worth mentioning to augment those in the product description info:

    1. The device packaging recommends charging it fully overnight before first use, but any parent with a house full of kids who have been watching for the UPS truck for 2 days knows how eager they are likely to be to try it out right away. Fortunately it turned out to arrive 99% charged, so we simply plugged it in and worked with it plugged in for the first evening.

    2. For the 4 year old, ease of access is clearly more important than security from her siblings using her profile…

    A Great Learning System for Children – comes with 100′s of apps & books, August 5, 2013

    This review is from: XO 7-inch Kids Tablet XO-780 (Personal Computers)

    I’ve followed OLPC, the tablet designers, since their first product, the XO-1 Laptop came out in 2006. That was a hardware innovation that never really had the software or content to back up the cutting-edge form factor.

    With the XO Tablet, OLPC finally got it right.

    The hardware is nothing special. This is a standard 7″ Android tablet in a green silicone bumper. But once you turn it on, you’ll realize its brilliance. The XO Tablet comes with 160+ educational software applications and a library of public domain books in English and Spanish. Children can turn it on and start playing and learning instantly. My two daughters (2 and 4) dropped the iPad and grabbed the XO Tablet as soon as I got it out of the box. They played with it (and fought over it) all day long, ignoring their other electronic distractions.

    Now I’m not sure at what age this tablet may seem uninspiring – I only have young kids – but the tablet can switch over to the normal Android user interface for older siblings or adults, so it is flexible.

    After seeing how much fun my daughters had the first day (and once I grew tired of them fighting over it), I bought a second one. I think you’ll do the same, as the price is right. The software applications themselves are worth more than $150.

    Review primarily from an adult perspective, August 20, 2013
    This review is from: XO 7-inch Kids Tablet XO-780 (Personal Computers)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    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 footprint

    Cons:

    * 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 Bluetooth capability

    First, this is NOT a state of the art high-end tablet. This is NOT an iPad. This IS an excellent android tablet that truly is best used by children 2-12 years old or so, with interested grown-ups second. With the bright green bumper case with carrying loop and big blue PLUS SIGN on the back, I don’t know if I looked goofy or cool using this on my train commute this morning. I go with “cool.”

    My biggest and most important suggestion to an adult getting this for their children: spend a LOT of time familiarizing yourself with this tablet. The default state is to not have wifi enabled or logged in, but should you do that (and you should and probably will) there are enough loopholes to allow kids pretty much full access to everything on the internet. I verified that there are no native blocks to any internet content in this tablet. If you’re paranoid, the best block is to not enable wifi at all. Yes, that sort of defeats the point.

    Second, the Android operating system loves Google. If you have a Google account (e.g., gmail), even when a kid account is being used (you can make up to three accounts) things like access to your gmail can slop over into the kid account. When logged into a child’s account I could see the MAIL icon and could look at downloaded messages. I recommend you set up a separate Google account just for this tablet if you intend to use this as an adult. If kids are going to be the primary users, I strongly recommend not depending upon this as a parallel, primary adult tablet. I’m certain there are workarounds to solve these issues, but the casual using adult will likely miss things. If you want a grownup’s tablet, just buy one.

    If you set up a Google account just for this tablet, you can make a setting in gmail that will automatically forward all received messages to a different email account. What this means is that you can monitor all messages coming into that account. That’s a gmail feature I enabled for one of my kids when they were younger.

    Using this off-line (no wifi) was a real pleasure and a real strength. There are so many pre-installed apps and books that your child will easily wear out battery charges just using them. I’m used to apps requiring an internet connection, but after exploring for a couple of hours I only found a couple of apps that wouldn’t work offline. Note that when wifi is enabled on any tablet its power use goes way up. If you’re using this on a trip, say, on an airplane or in the car, make sure you turn wifi off (or put in airplane mode) to extend battery power.

    You can set up to three child accounts on this tablet. However, switching between accounts is not made clear. The best way to switch from “Jane” to “John” is to just power down the tablet and restart. You can do it from the adult account. Again, it’s not clear but it can be done. Getting into the adult account ALWAYS requires an adult password. Child accounts can be unprotected.

    I really like the look, feel, and capabilities of this tablet. My only major complaint is with the built-in speakers. The rest are just software issues that are pretty typical for any Android product. This isn’t a major achievement, but it’s an excellent one.

    Final notes 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.
