It’s become a common sight: parents looking to get a moment’s peace while out and about, handing their children a tablet to watch videos.
One company has taken notice and is looking to offer a program that would ease the burden on parents’ pockets.
Nabi, the children’s tablet manufacturer, is now offering the Pass Tab subscription service.
For $9.99 a month, users can get a Pass Tab tablet that comes equipped with software which includes educational applications for their child.
Other apps included are Netflix and Google Play.
The company will also take back older Nabi tablets if users have them, but that policy is still being tweaked a bit.
The educational app package will cost $4.99 per month.
Now from this point, it gets slightly more convoluted.
The initial rate of $9.99 per month only comes if you sign a two-year contract; there are one-year plans available but the monthly cost goes up 5 dollars.
Those subscribing will also have to put down a deposit of $40 that you get back once the contract is up.
Early termination however forfeits that deposit and nets a user a $60 early termination fee.
On an upbeat note, Nabi is offering users the chance to own the tablet for only one dollar if you sign the two-year deal, but it will be $20 for one year contract subscribers.
