Basically, Arnova ChildPad is an Arnova 7d G3 with fancy colors design, customised graphic user interface, parental control and special version of Appslib for kids. It should offer the same performance as other Arnova G3 models based on Rockchip RK2918 CPU and for 99EUR/129$, it should be a nice device for children.

Note: The ChildPad website speaks of using a resistive screen, we don’t know when the rumoured ChildPad 2 with capacitive touchscreen will be available. No information is given about a release in Europe, but we expect it should be available quite soon.

Update: The ChildPad is now also being sold by a Dutch electronics company coolblue for 109EUR. Also, shops from the MyCom group (MyCom, Dixons, Dynabyte) seem to have it in stock.
