Samsung Introduces New Galaxy Tab For Education
Samsung today at FETC 2014 announced plans to launch a new Galaxy Tab exclusively developed for education, which will be available for K-12 school deployments for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Launching as part of the Google Play for Education program, the 10.1-inch tablet will offer simple set up and device management, access to educational content, and other features to support dynamic teaching and learning.
Google Play for Education gives educators access to a wide selection of teacher-approved apps, books, and videos. Teachers can search for content by grade, subject and standard (including Common Core), make purchases using a pre-loaded school PO rather than a credit card, and deliver content to students' tablets.
The new Galaxy Tab for Education has a 10.1-inch WXGA display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. It will feature the latest version of Android (version 4.4 or Kit Kat), WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n support and rear- and front-facing cameras.
The new Galaxy Tab will also include Near Field Communications (NFC) technology. Google also provides a web-based management console that will allow schools to manage and configure their entire fleet of devices.
Available from April, the new Galaxy Tab for education will be sold through Samsung distribution and channel partners.
Additionally, the line-up of Samsung's education products and solutions include the Samsung Chromebook, interactive whiteboards and printing solutions.
