Q: Is the Leapfrog Ultra Tablet the answer to getting kids the ultra tablet?

I got to play with one of these the other day - and the Ultra is inching closer to being a tablet over a toy - Leapfrog’s latest is still disconnected from the iOS or Android store but it does feature a browser built for kids. It’s no iPad mini, and I still have a soft spot for the MEEP, but the Ultra competes head-to-head with Nabi 2. Meanwhile a Nook and Kindle look almost shabby compared to the camera and browser ability - the content available from both is still stronger.

Anything that has a wider feel as a Nexus or iPad is still winning out - parent-controlled second-hand tablets and phones are still making the biggest waves.

A: Not yet.
