Intel® launches Windows® 7-based Studybook Tablet
Intel has introduced a new class of device called the Studybook tablet to target the elementary education market. The sturdy 7-inch tablet comes with a touchscreen display rather than a keyboard.
Equipped with an Intel Atom processor Z650, the tablet is designed for elementary-age classrooms, where the Apple iPad has yet to infiltrate. The display of this tablet is surrounded by shock-absorber to lessen the impact of accidental fall on the ground. The Studybook tablet is a part of the Intel Learning Series, which includes ultrabooks and notebooks. The tablet can be made to work either with the Microsoft Windows 7 or with the Honeycomb version of Google Android operating system.
The Intel Studybook tablet is specifically designed for one-on-one classroom learning. Other optional features of this tablet include a 0.3-megapixel camera on the front and 2-megapixel camera on the back, accelerometer, light sensor, 3G and Bluetooth connectivity, and a mini-High-Definition Multimedia Interface (mini-HDMI) SIM card slot for 3G connectivity.
