Samsung is one company that seems to have a little bit of something for everyone. After all, when you take a look at their smartphone and tablet line up, you will be able to see various devices throughout the range, targeting the entry level, mid-range and high end markets. It looks as though Samsung has not forgotten about our young folks in educational institutions, having announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Education.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Education is the first tablet that was specially designed to support scalable 1:1 computing initiatives in K-12 schools. Since it is student-friendly, that can be equated to it being rugged as well – you know how students can get a little bit boisterous at times. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Education is a 10.1-inch tablet that will work alongside Google Play for Education, where it can be managed via a web-based console, and is already available for school districts that intend to deploy it in time for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Educators would be able to gain access to a wide range of teacher-approved apps, books and videos when using the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Education in the classroom, and easy-to-manage purchase orders makes it a snap to acquire the relevant content. It will cost $369.99 per device, and will also come with a guaranteed compatible future upgrade to Samsung School.
Other features include a 10.1-inch WXGA display (1280×800), Android 4.4 Kit Kat, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity, rear- and front-facing cameras, 16GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, and up to 10 hours of battery life. [Press Release]
