While I was walking along CES 2011, I tend to gravitate toward the booths that interest me personally. Such was the case with the ViNCi Tab.
This is not one of the eighty tablet PCs that took up space at CES. The whole reason I was attracted to it was because it looked to be a giant iPod Touch designed for a toddler. As the parent of a toddler, I know how attracted my youngest son is to the iPod Touch.
Granted, it is possible for my littlest one to mess up the information on the iPod Touch, not to mentione what harm he could do online. Fortuantely, this Android tablet is designed with no WiFi or 3G functions, which can distract junior with some serious learning while Mommy or Daddy uses the iPad or Galaxy Tab.
Love word games? Boggle or Scrabble, it doesn’t matter – as long as you are able to gain a whole boatload of points to have your opponent submit to you by your sheer word power alone. Well, here is a modern take of a classic word game, Scrabble. We’re talking about the Scrabble Electronic Scramble, which is actually a different kind of game type as you are given an allowance of only 75 seconds to come up with as many anagrams as your brain can crack, using nothing bit the letter tiles which automatically recognize words.
Needless to say, speed is of the essence here, where the five 2″ electronic tiles are smart enough to sense their relative positions when placed next to one another, and they will beep and flash whenever they detect any approved three-, four-, or five-letter word. If you love flying solo, then you will challenge yourself by forming as many five-letter words from the same letters or random letters, while the third mode will require the tiles be passed from player to player in order to form words in a limited time so that one avoids getting eliminated.
Nice to know each $29.95 purchase comes with five CR2032 batteries to get you started right out of the box.
