Fuhu Nabi XD Tablet for Tweens

Updated on April 16, 2013

10" Tablet for Kids

Fuhu Nabi XD is a 10" Android Tablet for tweens and teens. Following on from the successful Nabi 2 tablet for kids, the Nabi XD has a larger screen and a very good specification.

The Nabi XD is a full-featured Android tablet designed for video gaming, social networking and kid-safe browsing and even homework - there's a keyboard case add-on which turns the Nabi XD into a lightweight laptop.

Note that the keyboard is an optional extra.

The Fuhu Nabi XD is a smart-looking white and red 10.1" tablet with a case that is built for protection.

10.1" is a large screen size which of course makes it heavier than smaller tablets. Younger kids may find it heavy, although the larger size actually works very well for kids picture books.

10.1" is big enough to share a movie with a friend.

Fuhu Nabi XD Specification

Fuhu are gaining a reputation for building very well specified tablets for kids, there's the Nabi 2 and the recently announced Nabi Jr. The Nabi XD is an impressive tablet with a 10.1 capacitative touchscreen, quad-core processor, cameras and connectivity. The Nabi XD is available in 16GB and 32 GB versions.

It's very reasonably priced for the technology you are getting - most adults would be more than happy with this specification for their tablet.

The Fuhu Nabi XD has an optional keyboard which means that the tablet can be used for school work and other tasks that require typing. The Fuhu Nabi XD therefore makes a great alternative to a Netbook or ultraportable laptop. With the keyboard it can function as a Netbook (running Android) with a touchscreen.

The keyboard case is coming soon.

Fuhu Nabi XD Features

Fuhu Nabi XD is an Android tablet with access to a wide range of apps and media which preteens and young teens will enjoy.

It has an upcoming Battle KINABIs game which uses figurines which can sync with the Nabi XD using its Near Field Communication (NFC) networking technology. This taps into the trend for appcessories and games like Skylanders that combine video games with physical toys.

Fuhu Nabi XD and Accessories

We're expecting more accessories for the Nabi XD to be available soon.

Kindle Fire HD 8.9", Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 16 GB - Includes Special Offers

@ Amazon BUY NOW

The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is probably the closest competitor to the Fuhu Nabi XD. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 has a smaller screen size but a slightly higher price (although it has been on offer for less.)

The Kindle Fire wasn't orginally aimed at children but now has a lot of features and content for that audience. The Nabi XD has actually been designed with tweens in mind so that may give it an edge.

You can get keyboards that work with the Kindle Fire HD but there isn't a specifically designed add-on like there is for the Nabi XD.

This 10" tablet for teens is usually available to buy on eBay used or new. And you'll find accessories too.

      @anonymous: I would expect so as they do for the regular Nabi. You could confirm with support here: https://apps.facebook.com/275421412591440/

      @MagpieNest: I agree. Do you think just a plain wireless keyboard will work on it for now?

      @anonymous: Not yet. I think Fuhu are trying to get everything just right before they make products available. I'll be keeping a look out. I think the keyboard is a very important feature for the XD.

      I actually ordered the Nabi XD and would like to buy the optional padfolio with the built in keyboard but can't seem to find it anywhere. Can you tell me where I can buy one?

      @anonymous: Good question. I don't know yet but I'll look out for other color options. For the Nabi there are different colored bumpers. Tween girls are very conscious of design so I hope there will be something that will appeal to them. Also, other companies tend to bring out decals for popular tablets so we might see those too.

      Love it. Will it only be available in red? Not a very feminine color for young girls.
