The longly awaited Arnova ChildPad (first known as Archos ChildPad) has finally started shipping in the USA. This tablet is developed with children in mind and will be available in capacitive and resistive versions and with or without the Alvin UI. This review covers the Alvin model for the EU, with 4GB of flash memory, resistive screen(no dual-touch on this one); though it shares many specifications with other ChildPads.

Tablet Design

The ChildPad shares its design with the Arnova 7d G3, the only difference are the colors. While Arnova 7d G3 is just black, the ChildPad is painted in nice-looking white and blue colors. The tablet is made of matte plastic, which should not catch fingertips…
