When a kid boots up the XO Tablet, they are presented with a menu that doesn’t ask them what app they want to launch, but what they want to be. If a child tells their XO Tablet that they want to be an artist, it would show them a number of tools that would help them realize that goal: a picture book of art, or a fun drawing app. If a kid wanted to be an astronaut, they might get to explore the solar system, or learn more about NASA. A budding writer might find a collection of e-books or an app that asks them to collaborate on writing a story. And while the XO Tablet comes pre-loaded with a large number of apps, games, and e-books that children might enjoy, it’s fully Google certified, meaning that kids can download and install apps from the Google Play store if they want to.
