EE launches 4G tablet 'Robin' for children

Is your child getting bored of his usual toys? Well, we're sure tablets would do him no harm. If every third child in the UK has one, why shouldn't he?

EE has launched a new 4G-enabled tablet named Robin that is designed for children and offers internet access and simple parental controls along with a world of entertainment content for your little ones.

Running Android operating system, Robin also runs Kurio security software which works as a filter for inappropriate content, thus keeping it safe for your child when you're away. Robin also comes with a Hopster TV subscription, so your kid will be able to enjoy a large number of games and TV shows along with 40 pre-installed game apps.

According to EE, when your child uses Robin, you will be able to monitor your child's internet access with great ease and help him/her find new games and shows on the internet.

Robin will be available for purchase from October 23 and you will be able to choose from Pay as you go and Pay monthly options for your child.

The children's tablet will cost £129.99 on pay as you go and Hopster, the Netflix equivalent for children comes  free for three months.

And obviously, where there are children, there are bound to be knocks and spills and so EE are offering damage cover for £4 a month which protects against cracks, smashes and spills with a next day replacement service.

The Robin goes on sale at select EE stores from 23rd October, and will be available through all usual channels from 2nd November.

You will be able to pick one up from £13 per month on pay monthly contracts and as a sweetener, existing EE pay monthly customers will not have to pay the upfront cost (usually £29.99) for the Robin if they get the £15 per month contract that runs for 24 months, giving them 10GB of monthly data.

Hopster is free for 24 months for all customers who opt for the Pay Monthly Robin plans.
