SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Kids are increasingly doing more of their school work on computers, and an El Segundo children’s device maker is launching a rent-a-tablet plan.
Fuhu is debuting the Nabi Pass Tab, where parents can pay a one year subscription at $15 a month, of two years for $10 a month.
The Nabi 2S Android tablet is then sent to their home, and all the content to be downloaded and streamed comes at no extra cost.
If the tablet is broken during the subscription, Fuhu will send a replacement device without asking questions.
Parents will have the option of sending the tablet back or buying it outright at the end of the subscription, although that won’t be much given that the 7-inch Nabi retails for about $150.
