A tablet computer just for women is drawing criticism across the country. 

The tablet, called the ePad Femme, was created by a made by a Middle East-based company called EUROSTAR, and is marketed for all the women out there who find Kindles and iPads just too confusing.

The 8-inch tablet comes pre-loaded with a pink background and a number of apps, including yoga, grocery shopping, weight loss and cooking.

A EUROSTAR marketing executive gave an explanation for the tablet's pre-loaded apps, saying "it makes the perfect gadget for a woman who might find difficulties in terms of downloading these applications."

That marketing executive also insisted that the ePad Femme is not sexist.
