Samsung's Galaxy Tab 3 Kids get real, ready to 'make learning fun'

It peeked its head out just a day ago by way of a Korean back-to-school catalog, and now Samsung's ready to let its kid-friendly cat out of the bag. The Galaxy Tab 3 Kids is, as the name implies, aimed at ever more tech savvy young ones, featuring a child-friendly skinned Android 4.1 and a slew of educational apps, games, ebooks and the like -- in fact, the more we hear about it, the more we think of the XO Tablet. Over on the hardware side, there's a seven-inch 1024 x 600 display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, front and rear facing cameras and 8GB of internal storage, expandable via a microSD slot. It's also got a rugged frame for clumsy little hands. The Tab is coming to Korea next month, with availability following in the US, UK, Europe, China and Africa. No word yet on pricing.
