As an Uncle to an autistic little boy I just wanted to give a little shout out for Motorola for sending 45 XOOM Android powered Tablets to Autism Speaks as a very useful learning aid. Autism affects 1 in 110 children and 1 in 70 boys. Big thanks to Motorola for helping families better help these children and let’s hope that someday we can se the cure for Autism.
Doing a quick Search through the Apple App Store there were 213 Apps returned when I put in the keyword Autism, and the Android Market from the Dell Streak returned 57. Hopefully developers will continue to create apps for Autistic Children and grow the apps in both stores.
“Motorola Mobility, the Motorola Foundation and Autism Speaks have joined together to deliver 45 Motorola XOOM tablets to families with autistic children, helping enhance the children’s ability to organize, stay focused and develop better social and communication skills. Watch one of the children interacting with the tablet below!”
