Metis Learning and Intel India launched the Eddy Tablet powered by Intel Atom processor Z2520. The device is targeted towards the children aging between 2 to 10 years. It will be available at a price of Rs 9999, exclusively on Amazon.in with launch discounts and offers worth Rs 4,500.
The company claims it to be the smartest, safest and strongest tablet for kids. It is built by keeping children’s rough handling in mind. The first version was launched earlier this year and has been sold out since.

The Eddy tablet comes with over 160 pre-loaded learning apps along with content which covers over 300 key skills which a child needs to learn between the ages of 2 to 10.
These apps are selected by educators and experts to accelerate a child’s social, emotional and cognitive development, the company said.
Studies indicate that children in India spend an average of two hours daily watching television and are now increasingly spending a lot of time playing games on parent’s smartphones.
Eddy provides a responsible and safe technology alternative for introducing kids to the digital age. It is targeted at children aged 2-10, because these are the most critical learning years for a child which impact future success.
Eddy Tablet is powered by an Intel Atom Z2520 SoC processor (2 cores, 4 threads, 1.2GHz, 1MB cache). It runs on Android 4.2.2 OS and Athena OS skin designed with children’s learning in mind, and built-in parental control features.

The device sports a scratch proof and shock resistant 7 inch IPS display with a UV-ray protective layer to make it safer for kids’ eyes.
It has an internal storage of 16GB which can be expanded up to 32GB via memory card.
The company has claimed that all content on the tablet is violence free. Tablet’s screen is ophthalmologist approved, and ensures UV ray protection and lower eyestrain compared to other screens.
The device comes with 9H hardness level and sports a high quality drop-safe bumper made of food grade silicone bumper to prevent damage from falls.
“The Eddy powered by the Intel Atom processor combines an ideal balance of performance and battery life coupled with strong learning content to provide an innovative and exciting solution for kids,” said Sandeep Arora, director, Marketing and Market Development, Intel.
