Intel introduces Android-based education tablet reference design
Press release, August 14; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 14 August 2013]

Intel has introduced an education-focused tablet reference design, featuring an Intel Atom processor and the Android operating system. 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, according to Intel.

The tablet is fully 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, Android 4.0, more than 6.5 hours of battery life, and weighs 1.5lbs. Intel also offers an Intel Education tablet with a 7-inch screen, single-core Intel Atom processor Z2420, Android 4.1, nearly 8 hours of battery life and weighs 0.78lbs. 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.

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.
