ConveGenius has announced the launch of CG Slate on Lenovo for Grades K-5. CG Slate is an NCERT curriculum-mapped, self-learning tablet, especially designed for Indian kids in order to make learning fun, yet informative. The device will be available via Flipkart at Rs 8,499 in India. There is also an early bird offer for the first 1000 tablets which will be available at a price of Rs 7499.
In terms of specifications, the smartphone features a 7-inch IPS display with a 1024 x 600 pixels resolution. It is powered by a 1.3GHz Quad-Core MediaTek MT8127 processor paired with 1GB RAM. It includes an internal storage of 8GB which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card. Running Android 5.0 Lollipop, the device comes equipped with a 2MP rear camera along with a 0.3MP front facing camera. A 3450mAh battery completes the package.
CG Slate reportedly has a unique Learn-Play-Shop approach to learning, which incentivizes kids to self-learn without adult supervision, as parental controls take over when the kids use the tablet. As children learn more, they get points, which they can redeem to watch cartoons, to play games and then to add their favourite toys to their wishlist, which their parents can buy for them. There is also an intelligent mascot called Titu that guides the child throughout the learning process by recommending educational content based on the child’s learning needs.
Talking about the development, Jairaj Bhattacharya, MD, ConveGenius Group, said, “We envision CG Slate to be every child’s best friend for Learning, Entertainment, and Shopping. In this endeavour, we have partnered with best-in-breed brands such as Lenovo and Flipkart to ensure a seamless user and purchase experience, respectively. CG Slate is an affordable and comprehensive mobile learning solution, which uses the immense potential of gamification to personalise learning for kids, and supplements regular curricula taught in school with NCERT-mapped content. We are positive that CG Slate’s interactive lessons, games, videos and movies will enrich the overall learning experience of the young generation, and would be a real aid for parents.”
