This review is from: VTech InnoTab 2 Learning App Tablet - Pink (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What's this?)The Vtech company makes quite a few kids electronic devices. We had a Vtech reader and my daughter enjoyed it but the touch screen was frustrating. This Innotab2 features a nice bigger screen with improved touch but can still be finicky we have found a light touch works best. There is a cartridge slot which does NOT support older Vtech cartridges of any system. The battery panel locks in place with a switch rather than a screw which is nice. Their is decent on board memory and some nice built in art activities and more. The rotating camera looks really good and lets kids actually take decent shots and video on their own. My problem is with the watch battery that powers the OS it kept making us set the date and time upon start up. I replaced it and this thing still won't hold the date and time. The battery gets wasted when you start up as it goes full vol and brightness everytime even if you have turned them down last time fortunately battery life is good on this for the screen size. The worst part however was taking this online to get the free apps. I reinstalled the software twice and contacted customer support but I just couldn't get the VTECH homepage to recognize this unit and allow it to work. It was frustrating and my daughter was disappointed we couldn't get her downloads. This company feels like it is out to sell more than educate as the peripherals and extras are overpriced. You can't even use an AC adapter other than the one they make because of the design of the input.
