The BelugaBloo Team has entered into an agreement with CIDE-INTERACTIVE for our first ever pre-load deal with a device manufacturer. CIDE-INTERACTIVE manufactures the child-friendly KURIO Tablets and the deal means all KURIO Tablets (7-inch and 10-inch) sold will be pre-loaded with the BELUGABLOO APP. The pre-loaded app will no doubt be able to increase BelugaBloo’s customer base and drive traffic and sales to the store. With thousands and thousands of APPS available in the market, this will give BelugaBloo an instant advantage, as well as providing value added benefit to publishers/partners who are already engaged with BelugaBloo to use this technology to extend the reach of children’s books. CIDE-INTERACTIVE will begin shipping the KURIO Tablets this month to North America and European countries, and we expect to see the tablets to hit the stores very soon.
