Santa Clara-based tech titan, Intel; which is well known for its chips is now evidently pulling its sleeves up to enter the tablet market segment. In a latest development, the company has announced the launch of two Atom based tablets under it's Intel Education tablet series. This could possibly be a continuation to their 7-inch Intel Studybook which come a couple of years ago.
The Education tablets come in two size variants one with 7 inch multi-touch display that offers a resolution of 1024 x 600p and the other one comes with the obvious 10 inch capacitive touchscreen display with an output of 280 x 800p resolution.
Here is a brief rundown on the other specs of the two tablets individually:
The 7 inch Educational tablets runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is powered by an Atom Z2420 processor tuned to 1.2GHz and is also backed by 1GB LPDDR2 RAM. The tablet is also IP41-certified which hints at a dust and water resistance build.
Talking about the most expected feature, cameras. The tablet comes with a dual camera where 2MP camera can found on the rear side along with the VGA front facing shooter. The tablet further houses an internal storage capacity up to 8GB and thankfully there is a support of the microSD card.
To talk about the dimension, the device measures 200 x 122 x 9.95 mm and is powered by standard 4,200mAh battery.
On the other hand, the 10-inch Intel Education is powered by Android Ice Cream Sandwich s operating system. However, this one is powered by a higher 1.6GHz Atom Z2460 chipset and a 6,600mAh battery. The device comes with an internal storage of 16GB and similar 1GB LPDDR2 RAM. There is no mention about the camera aspect of this tablet but it can be expected to come with the same camera features as the 7 inch one.
Moreover, Intel is also bringing a useful preloaded software in both the devices like e-reader and notes applications, painting tools, laboratory experiments and on top of that McAfee Mobile Security will also come with the device. Talking about the security Intel's Education Theft Deterrent makes the slates harder to be stolen.
Unfortunately, there is no information about the price and the availability of the tablets that are expected to come in a budget friendly section.
More importantly, Intel should keep a close eye on the pricing part of the tablet, because there are other tablets that are actually taking the market in its pocket like, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and Tab 3, iPad Mini, Lenovo tablets and Asus FonePad as well.
