Submitted by lalit on April 10, 2012 - 11:30pm.
Intel Corporation today introduced an Intel studybook, a tablet that is part of the Intel Learning Series family and features unique classroom-ready features and capabilities including an ultra rugged design and specialized educational software. Purpose-built for 1:1 e-learning, a studybook’s innovative features include front and rear cameras, microphone, light sensor support project-based inquiry and mobile learning environments. It comes with a capacitive multi-touch LCD screen and is based on an Intel Atom processor Z650.
The rugged tablet reference design is constructed from a single piece of plastic and includes shock absorbers around the screen. It is designed to withstand accidental drops from a standard student desk and is also water- and dust- resistant. Young students, often owners of slippery fingers can learn and have fun in and out of the classroom with reduced stress for parents and teachers concerned about damage.
The education software includes classroom management, LabCam applications that support scientific enquiry, and an optimized e-reader. The collaboration software has a user-friendly interface, which enables teachers and students to collaborate in the classroom for improved learning efficiency.
The Intel studybook tablet will be available later this year. The 7-inch model is designed to be low cost and should price about $199.
