LeapFrog to Launch LeapPad, More Android Apps

If you’re not familiar with LeapFrog, they’re a children’s learning and entertainment company that specializes in fun education for kids. They’ve been producing interactive books and software for years, and according to John Barbour, the CEO of LeapFrog, they’re working on several tablets aimed at kids. They’re calling them LeapPads, a play on their popular interactive books that have been selling well for the past 12 years. The first LeapPad will have a 5-inch screen, with larger displays coming in future tablets, and will be available for purchase in the UK on August 15th. No word on a U.S. launch, but it’s probably not too far off.

Now, they don’t run Android, so you’re probably wondering why this is relevant to AndroidGuys. LeapFrog wants to assure parents everywhere that they’re not planning on halting app production for Android or iOS devices anytime soon. They’ll be cranking out interactive apps for kids for years to come. In fact, Barbour has said that LeapFrog wants to be a major player in kid-based apps for Android and iOS.

So, with that being said, who’s picking up a LeapPad for their child when it lands across the pond? Excited to see that LeapFrog is committed to the app game? Sound off in the comments, or on our Facebook Wall!

I've been an Android fanboy since day one, but I've never had a chance to truly express my voice and be a part of the Android Community. When AndroidGuys starting accepting applications for interns, I saw my opportunity. I joined the AndroidGuys team and haven't looked back!

    Althogh the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 10 shoes are produced in the same factory, but they also got  different styles. In spite of this, Air Jordan Shoes that we also called them as Michael Jordan shoes are made with high quality, and the price of authentic Jordan shoes are always expensive. But all of them are worth to buy. Choose Air Jordan 13 at last just because which style are more suitable than Air Jordan 23 for me. For doing sport, Jordan Shoes must be your first of all choice if you have a try of them once. I have hold of my last cheap Jordan shoes for 2 year, because of they are not suitable for coming summer. After a search of sports shoes online with the different Search Engines, I choose the Air Jordan 1 at last.
