Acer Introduces First Chrome OS Tablet for Education - Chromebook Tab 10

Acer plans to support Augmented Reality in the future to allow students to experience new ways of learning with Expeditions AR from Google.

The Chromebook Tab 10 will go on sale in the United States in April with a starting price tag of $329 (roughly Rs. 21,321).

According to DroidLife, the product will not be restricted for sale in the education space - mass market consumers will be able to purchase the new device. Schools with dedicated labs and wireless carts can use the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 over several days of classroom time.

In Australia, Acer has risen to market leadership for its supply in the education industry.

The Tab 10 comes with a 9.7-inch screen that runs up to a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels.

John Beilein dances on Michigan's team bus following Final Four berth
Matthews scored 10 points for U-M, Abdur-Rahkman six, but MI had eight turnovers in the first half to only three assists. Abdur-Rahkman missed the front end of yet another one-and-one, but FSU missed a long triple that would have tied it.

USA charges nine Iranians suspected of hacking universities
The defendants are unlikely to ever be prosecuted in an American courtroom since there's no extradition treaty with Iran . They were able to steal 15 billion pages of academic research that was then sold outside the U.S. for profit.

Now touchscreen Chromebooks are nothing new, such as Google's own Pixelbook and the Samsung Chromebook Pro, but they've always come with a keyboard in traditional laptop clamshell form.

Either way, Acer claims that during normal use, the battery will offer up to 9 hours of power off the charge, which is just enough for a school day. Although Chrome OS has been running on laptops, desktops, all-in-ones, and convertibles, it was not included in the tablet. We are yet to see how much of a success does ChromeOS on a tablet prove to be.

The Wacom EMR stylus that comes along with the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 can be used for interacting with apps, sketching, and taking notes. It's a little heavier and thicker than the entry-level iPad, but it definitely has Apple's tablets in its sights - Apple itself has an education-focused event scheduled for tomorrow. Even though this is just another one, Acer has stated that the Chromebook Tab 10 has been created to be slim and lightweight in order for it to be suitable for a classroom.

Acer has launched the world's first tablet that runs on Chrome OS, the management-friendly Google platform that leads the USA education market for cheap laptops and 2-in-1s. It arrives in April in the USA for $329, which is exactly as much as the iPad 9.7 goes for. Cameras? Yep, two: 2MP up front, 5MP at the rear. Tab 10 has got a microSD card slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB-C port. Chromebook styli need no charging or pairing to work.
