Intel Introduces Android-Based Education Tablet Reference Design To Support Student Engagement And Success

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 21 st 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 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.

In our increasingly complex world, Intel recognizes that curiosity, critical thinking and a quality education are necessary to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s jobs. Intel Education empowers students for lifelong success through hardware, software and professional development that helps educators use technology effectively and enhances student achievement. Intel’s proven education solutions have helped more than 10 million teachers improve education for hundreds of millions of students in 100 countries. They help enhance student achievement, expand opportunities for growth, and build an innovation economy.
