grandPad : Easy to Use Tablet for Seniors gets a Hardware refresh

After two and a half years of success, the grandPad is finally getting a refresh. You might remember the grandPad as the first Android tablet designed specifically for seniors’ needs, the first one in the market to cater to that particular audience. Since the focus of the design is on accessibility and ease of use, the hardware updates that really matter are the ones that you can see and feel, and the design team has really put something special together in that regard.

What is grandPad ?

grandPad is finally getting a refresh after two and a half years of success. You might remember the grandPad as the first Android tablet designed specifically for seniors’ needs, the first one in the market to cater to that particular audience. Since the focus of the design is on accessibility and ease of use, the hardware updates that really matter are the ones that you can see and feel, and the design team has really put something special together in that regard.

Updated Graphics and Cameras

One of the updates that grandPad users will enjoy most is the upgrade to dual 5 megapixel cameras, allowing everyone with the second-generation unit clearer, higher resolution video conferencing while also delivering the ability to easily grab snapshots that look great even when they get printed. Of course, those upgraded cameras wouldn’t really do a lot of good without updated graphics, and that is where the tablet really shows off. Its eight inch display has a 1920x1200 resolution, allowing it to display true 1080p high definition video for crystal clear video playback. These updated graphics also make pictures look great when you use the grandPad to look through them.

Wireless Charging

One of the bigger breakthroughs of the last couple years has been ubiquitous wireless charging, which makes it easier to just set your device on the charging surface without having to remember to plug it in. The grandPad 2.0 brings it as a standard feature, further reducing the number of steps that users need to take to keep it up and running smoothly.

How grandPadMakes These Leaps

The design team is keeping the exact hardware profile under wraps for right now, but what we do know is that they teamed up with the people at Acer when they went to work on the internals, and everything is designed to support the unique interface and device accessibility options pioneered by the original grandPad. It might have been a long wait between a first and second generation tablet in this niche, but the new features really make that wait worthwhile. Once you hold one and navigate through its various easy-to-reach apps to see, you’ll understand.
