Preorders Begin For Kid-Friendly LeapPad Tablet

If your kid regularly likes to use your iPad or other tablet, you might be interested in a new offering from LeapFrog called the LeapPad. This tablet is specifically designed for kids and offers more than 100 learning games and apps. The LeapPad also features an on-board camera and video recorder.

The look of the LeapPad resembles other adult-oriented tablets but it has a price tag that’s much lower than adult-oriented tablets. The LeapPad is currently available for preorder for $99. The LeapPad has 2GB of internal memory. The tablet’s 5-inch touchscreen display supports a resolution of 480x272.

LeapPad apps cost $5 and game cartridges cost $24.99. The LeapPad comes in green and pink colors. The tablet will be available at retail stores on August 15.
