Hands Off, Mom and Dad. This Tablet Is for Children. - NYTimes.com

From the brief description of this article, I thought perhaps it was the latest marketing angle for the RIM PlayBook…

Available in time for the holidays, it starts up in Kid Mode — a password-protected gated community of sites, apps, music and videos of your choosing. Unlike an iPad, this tablet runs Flash, so your bookmarks can include sites like PBS Kids. There’s a front-facing camera that can be used to Skype with a grandparent, and accelerometers that let you steer a race car in Need for Speed Shift — one the 15 apps that were preloaded on the unit I tested. The sound is so-so; stereo headphone jacks supplement the audio.
