Educational Tablets from Intel

Intel's Student Tablet
Just yesterday we posted about the special student discount on Tablets by Microsoft on its product known as Surface Pro. Here is great news that other companies are also doing very good things for students. Intel is hoping to help schools make the transition to electronic learning with the announcement of two low-spec Android tablets intended to be cheap enough for bulk purchase, see the repots by PhoneArena.
The smaller and we think cheaper also! With an Atom Z2420 chip running at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, and a 7-inch display with the resolution of 1024 by 600 pixels. There are also 8GB of storage, a built-in speaker and mike, basic front and rear cameras, and a sealed battery that will give you power back up of 8 hours (not bad!). It is claimed that this tablet is resistant to some water and shock damage too, bearing IP41 certification, is worth noting.

Another larger model will have this specification: Intel Education Tablets is powered by a 1.6GHz Atom Z2460 processor backed by 1GB of RAM and its 10.1-inch display has a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels. It offers twice the built-in storage, 16 GB
Educational Accessories (Magnifying glass on camera) 
Although the tablets are made for educational purpose and for students, they will come with bundled education software and learning-focused accessories like a magnification lens for the camera and a temperature probe.
Unfortunately we do not have any details about Pricing and availability as of now, but with those specs we’d expect them to be significantly more affordable than the iPads being baught by LA unified school district.
