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!
