Though already available through Amazon and SkyMall, the Vinci Tab II — who we met in a previous life — has found its way to WalMart.com and is moseying to other e-tailers such as ToysRUs.com, Diapers.com and YoYo.com next month. The Vinci carries a 7-inch (800×480) display, a 3-megapixel camera, 1.2GHz Cortex A8 processor, 8GB of intenral storage, a microSD card slot, runs Android (flavor unspecified) and is touted as the only tablet certified for child safety. The tab also supports three levels of premium educational apps and includes a few samples, interactive storybooks and animated music videos for your rug rats to work their noggins.While the slab’s first incarnation lacked WiFi to minimize radiation exposure to little tykes, the latest iteration can pack WiFi for those who’d rather not update apps via microUSB. Interested in keeping your young’un busy? You’ll be set back $249 for a WiFi model or $199 if you forgo wireless connectivity — a hefty drop from its predecessor’s $389 starting point.
