Acer Unveils First Chrome OS Tablet For Schools

Acer Unveils First Chrome OS Tablet For Schools

The good news is that you can still pair it to a Bluetooth keyboard, and the Chrome OS tablet also comes with a Wacom EMR stylus that students can use can use to sketch, take notes and mark up papers precisely.

The Chrome OS broke new ground on Monday with the launch of the first tablet to run Google's lightweight operating system. "The new Acer Chromebook Tab 10 encourages students to discover new ways of understanding the world around them".

Acer has launched the world's first tablet that runs on Chrome OS, the management-friendly Google platform that leads the United States education market for cheap laptops and 2-in-1s. Other features such as verified boot, checks security at every boot and encrypted data makes the tablet secure and shareable.

The new Chromebook Tab 10 features a front 2MP HD camera and 5MP rear camera, 9.7-inch QXGA IPS display (2048×1536), 4GB RAM and 32GB on-board storage [plus microSD reader].

North America will see this device in April while Europe, the Middle East and Asia will have their first crack in May. It is popularly known as the "Chromebook processor" thanks to Google's involvement. One of the lovely things about Chrome OS is its uniformity across devices but that doesn't mean a little tweaking isn't welcome when it comes to user experience. The Pro version comes with a different processor, a relatively popular one, and therefore, comes at a premium price even though both the models offer nearly identical performance.

Playboy model claims Trump tried to pay her following 'intimate relationship'
She said that she loved Trump and that he loved her. "He would call me "baby" or he would call me 'beautiful Karen'". If he weren't married, I wouldn't have any regrets because he treated me very kind. "I was in the Playboy scene".

"The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 combines advances in hardware and application support to enable more meaningful learning for an even wider range of K-12 students", Acer general manager of commercial and detachable products James Lin said.

It wasn't too long ago that we saw the first touchscreen Chromebook, then the first Chrome OS device with a built-in stylus. The Pixel C was discontinued sighting its lackluster sales.

Not only does the official invite offer a clue, but the location of Apple's next event gives us a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Apple is expected to announce its entry-level 9.7-inch iPad to compete with Chromebooks. Like the Chromebook Tab 10, this slate will target educational customers.

Acer has made this tablet with a focus on classrooms to enhance the learning experience. If the rumors are to be believed, the new iPad would be priced at $259.
