Fuhu Introduces Nabi Box Family Entertainment SystemEntertainment Hub Lets Families Watch, Explore and Interact on Their TVs (January 11, 2012)
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/12 -- CES -- Fuhu, Inc., maker of the first "kiddified" tablet, Nabi, announced today at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) the world's first Android-based family entertainment system made especially for kids. Nabi Box connects directly to both the TV and Internet to deliver programming and activities centered on the family. It's easy for children to engage with and control, via either a mousepad- and keyboard-equipped remote control or a Nabi tablet.
Nabi Box centers around three core experiences for families:
- From movies to TV and Nabi TV to photos, Nabi Box makes it easy for kids to watch their favorite content on the big screen of the TV
- Content will be available for consumption in multiple tiers, from pay-per-view viewing to on-demand streaming of entire children's series for a monthly subscription
- Nabi Box brings parent-approved Web surfing for kids to the TV
- Nabi Learning Channel streams educational content and offers complementary worksheets and activities kids can take to-go on the Nabi tablet
- Family Time feature enables video chat with family members near and far
"We've seen a tremendous response to Nabi's creation of a tablet experience completely tailored to kids but powerful enough for parents and now we're expanding that experience beyond personalized tablet engagement," said Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu, Inc. "The television is the cornerstone of the digital living room and we saw a void for a multi-faceted family entertainment experience -- that's what we're creating with Nabi Box."
Complete details about Nabi Box will be available when it launches later this quarter.
