Intel today introduced an education-focused tablet reference design, featuring an Intel Atom processor and the Android operating system code-named Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Intel Education tablet is specifically for education, featuring student-friendly designs that empower students to create content. Features including front- and rear-facing cameras, a stylus, integrated speakers and microphones bring interactive, multimedia content into learning.
The tablet is equipped with Intel Education Software, a suite of applications including an e-Reader, science exploration and data analysis application and painting tools. It also has management software that provides teachers and administrators with tools to protect students and manage technology.
The Intel Education tablet with a 10-inch screen has a dual-core Intel Atom processor Z2460, an Android 4.0 operating system, more than 6.5 hours of battery life, and weighs 1.5 lbs. Intel also offers an Intel Education tablet with a 7-inch screen, single-core Intel Atom processor Z2420, an Android 4.1 operating system, nearly 8 hours of battery life and weighs .78 lbs. Both tablets are equipped with McAfee Mobile Security. The screens have even been designed with shock-absorbers, so they are cushioned in case of a fall.
