October 21, 2014 by Tom in Android Tablet, Tablet with No Comments.

A while back we reported on the huge 20-inch Nabi Android tablet for children. Over at SlashGear they've got hold of one to review, so how does this curiosity hold up? In the review, the verdict seems to be the big, heavy tablet isn't for portability. The 1600 x 900 screen comes across as ok for kids but not knock-out in comparison to other tablets, but the viewing angle gets the thumbs up. Despite some bugs, the Nvidia Tegra 4 processor holds up well and overall it's slated as an interesting alternative to pocket-sized slates. Via slashgear
