Last year, VTech was one of the first companies to delve into designing a touch tablet with educational software for children when they launched their InnoTab. The InnoTab (compare prices) includes a touch screen device, accessible using either a finger or a stylus. Children can access a variety of apps, some which are included in the device with the purchase, while additional games and activities can be downloaded to the device from the internet via the Learning Lodge Navigator.
VTech announced this week that in the Fall of 2012, there will be a 2nd generation InnoTab. The InnoTab 2 (compare prices) will now come standard with a rotatable digital camera, as well as a video recorder. There will also be an expandable SD card slot, allowing up to 32 GB of memory for games and apps. In addition to the VTech InnoTab 2, there will be a wi-fi version, the InnoTab 2s (compare prices), that will allow apps and games to be securely downloaded from the Learning Lodge Navigator using a wireless connection.
