It feels like any time we’re talking about some great deal on a tablet that may be one of last year’s models, or is just straight-up underpowered compared to its peers, we offer the advice that such a purchase would make a good backup tablet or one to give to the kids – cheap enough that you wouldn’t be too upset should the worst happen to it. Not everyone’s content to see kids stuck with hand-me-downs, and Samsung, at least, has come up with a new tablet specifically designed with little hands in mind, today announcing its Galaxy Tab 3 Kids.

Specs-wise, we’re looking at what’s essentially a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. That means the same seven-inch 1024 x 600 display, same 1.2GHz dual-core SoC, same 1GB of RAM, and same 3MP/1.3MP camera arrangement. In fact, the Tab 3 Kids matches the Tab 3 7.0’s specs right down to its weight and dimensions. That’s a little odd, since the Kids tablet claims to offer a big kid-friendly grip, but we’re guessing Samsung views that as an accessory and has elected not to factor it in to the tablet’s official size.

So, what does the Tab 3 Kids do that the Tab 3 7.0 doesn’t? Well, it’s yellow, for one, and comes with a C-pen capacitive stylus. For parents, there’s integrated time management software to control how long kids are allowed to play with the tablet. Samsung also pre-loads the device with a number of kid-appropriate apps.

The Galaxy Tab 3 Kids hits South Korea in a couple weeks, with global availability following shortly thereafter. We haven’t hear a lick about pricing just yet, but it feels like Samsung could launch it with a sticker price just slightly above that of the plain vanilla Tab 3 7.0.
