The Huwaei MatePad T 8 Kids Edition and Watch Kids have officially arrived in the Philippines to help with the changing learning environment in the Philippines. As their name suggests, both devices are catered for children and have additional software support to provide a better learning experience.
Huawei MatePad T 8 Kids Edition
The MatePad T 8 Kids Edition shares the same specifications as the vanilla T 8 but it comes with an anti-shock case made in edible silicone to make it additionally safe for children. The case also comes with a support stand and a stylus.
The device has Kids Corner pre-installed, which allows children to explore, play, learn, and draw as they wish on various apps. Parents have full control over the tablet including Time, Application, and Content Management, as well as a charging lock to keep kids from using the device while it is being charged.
Parents or adults meaning to use it as a regular tablet once the kids are done using it may do so by switching from Kids Mode to Regular Mode.
