The AARP unveiled the RealPad tablet, developed to target customers in the 50-plus age group that may be wary of adopting new personal technologies. According to the company, the Intel-powered tablet was designed with the more apprehensive technology user in mind.
The RealPad is powered by a 1.2GHz Intel Atom processor with 16GB of memory, and runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. The tablet sports a 7.85-inch display and features a 5.0 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2.0-megapixel front facing camera.
The AARP has included built-in video tutorials designed to help educate its users, as well as add a “RealQuick Fix” feature, designed to place all trouble-shooting needs in a single menu. For user’s who still can’t quite figure out what went wrong, access to 24/7 technical support (online or over the phone) is also available.
Available for $189, customers can pre-order the AARP RealPad tablet now, or wait until mid-October to purchase it at Walmart retail locations. A one-year AARP membership is also included with the purchase.
