Samsung is slapping a rugged case on its 10 inch Galaxy Tab 4 Android tablet, adding education-oriented software and support software, and positioning the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Education as a tablet for use in K-12 classrooms.
The tablet is available for $370, and schools can get Management Console support for $30 per unit.
The specs for the Android tablet are pretty much the same as those for the consumer version of the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1.
It features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, a microSD card slot, 3MP rear camera, 1,3MP front camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 6800mAh battery for up to 10 hours of run time. The tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
What makes this model a bit different are the rugged case which helps keep the tablet safe from in-class abuse and support for the Google Play for Education platform which helps educators find teacher-approved apps and helps school administrators manage multiple devices.
The tablet will also be compatible with the upcoming Samsung School platform for managing technology in the classroom.
