Schools these days are starting to incorporate the use of tablets in the classroom. This is because kids these days are more familiar with tablets as their parents probably own them back at home as well. That and the fact that tablets allow for more interactive learning and also cuts down on the need to lug around heavy textbooks.
Well it looks like Panasonic is getting into the education game as they have recently unveiled their new Panasonic 3E hybrid Windows tablet designed for education in mind. This means that the tablet will come with educational features, such as a magnifying lens that will turn the tablet into a microscope, a temperature sensor, along with education apps and lesson plans bundled by Intel.
It has also been designed to withstand daily use by kids who might drop the device every now and then. According to Panasonic, the tablet will feature both dust and water resistance, and will also be able to withstand a drop from as high up as 70cm, so it should be able to withstand some level of abuse from children.
As far as its specs are concerned, the Panasonic 3E will feature a 10-inch display with a resolution of 1366×768. It will be powered by an Intel Atom AZ3740D quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, accompanied by 2GB of RAM, and will come in either 32GB or 64GB storage options. The tablet will be run Windows 8.1 Pro and will also come with a tethered stylus and will be priced at $499.
