Hey Jason, Ron, & Chad.

I just listened to episode 89 were you discussed the Nabi 2.

After getting them (two Nabi2's) home and playing around with them, I was impressed! The kid ui is locked down nicely and pretty snappy when playing some of the preloaded games, ie angry birds . The camera was a little weak,but adequate for a Skype session. But best of all, after putting in a password for "daddy mode" it unlocks the limited ui and turns into a regular android tablet. My only challenge now is figure out how to load the play store. They removed it and replaced it with the Nabi app store. But being a fan of rooting & romming my other Android devices, I should be able to figure it out. Additionally, I was impressed with the bumper case and the robustness of the tablet with case removed. I think my parents are going to out do Santa this year. :-)


P.S. I turned my little cousin on to ( 'cause he is addicted to minecraft) and his is a regular viewer of the show ::thumbs up to chad.
