    So you are telling me this Alvin & the Chipmunks kids tablet will have ICS before my BIONIC!?!?!? It is a sad day for Moto and VZW.

    Looks like Vanilla android with a Chipmunks background. I'm not complaining! Plus it has Parental Controls! And only 129.99?? Win, Win...Win.

    I think I just found my son's birthday present.

    LOL, 6 Months of a parental control App? I am using Sandbox by Famingp right now on my Android Device. Allows you to go into a safe Launcher that you can turn off notifications and disable links and the use of the bweb browser apps. You can only get out of the "kid friendly" launcher by enter a password or draw to unlock. Life Saver!

    That is my exact thought. My daughter is 6 and is constantly asking to use my wife's Transformer Prime. Her birthday is past and we usually get her one gift that is a good one since our family is somewhat large and my kids get more than enough gifts from everyone else.

    My son's grandparents are buying one for him. He is only 16months, but already knows how to turn on and unlock our phones, my tablet, my wife's Nook and loves Talking Tom Cat. I figure it will grow nicely with him and maybe get some love from the Dev community in the future :) Plus it should be great for road trips. We can strap it to the back of the seat and play some Yo Gabba Gabba.

    I ordered one from Amazon for our son. I will let you know what I think of it when it arrives. One thing is for sure -- it was a lot cheaper than my Galaxy Tab 10.1 (which doesn't have ICS, of course).
