Samsung’s kid-friendly tablet is set to ship first in Korea in early September, with availability in the U.S. and rest of world to follow.
It packs a seven-inch screen, front and rear cameras, and the Jelly Bean flavor of Android (4.1).
Meanwhile, Samsung confirmed that at least two new products for grown-ups are planned for introduction at the company’s Sept. 4 event in Berlin. In an interview, Samsung’s Y.H. Lee told the Korea Times that, as expected, the Galaxy Gear watch and Galaxy Note III would both be introduced at the Berlin event. Lee didn’t give details on either product, but did say that the watch will run Android and won’t feature a flexible display, though Samsung has been working on such technology.
