Intel introduces Android-based education tablet reference design
Posted on 14-Aug-2013 11:00. | Tags Filed under: News.



Intel introduced an education-focused tablet reference design, featuring an Intel Atom chip 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 compelling content. Features including front- and rear-facing cameras, a stylus, integrated speakers and microphones bring interactive, multimedia content into learning.

The tablet is fully equipped with Intel Education Software, a comprehensive 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.

“Intel remains committed to helping teachers and students achieve better results through the development of complete solutions that span the hardware, software and digital content required for a 21st century learning experience,” said John Galvin, vice president of Intel’s Sales and Marketing Group and general manager of Intel Education. “The tablet we are introducing is one additional step in a 10 year journey.”

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 been designed with shock-absorbers, so they are cushioned in case of a fall.

The tablets are designed to enable interactive, collaborative learning to prepare students for success in school and beyond. These reference designs align with the Intel Education platform, which assists teachers and students in technology-enhanced learning.
