While South Korean tech heavyweight Samsung has made quite a name for itself over the years with its dedicated Android devices that have re-defined the evolution of technology, it seems like the manufacturer is also looking to contribute a bit to the education sector as well. According to reports, Samsung has announced a new Galaxy Tab especially for schools which is a a black 10-inch Galaxy Tab 3.
While we have no idea if Samsung will look to promote the new initiative worldwide in the near future, which will definitely boost up the way education is conducted in recent times, the company has kicked off the plans by promoting the first batch of tablets for K-12 schools.
"Samsung and Google for Education share a commitment to delivering innovative learning experiences to improve student outcomes," said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung's Enterprise Business Division.
"The new Galaxy Tab with Google Play for Education integration was created to specifically address the needs of today's schools and support our vision for powering education by empowering educators."
Although the initiative to launch tablets for better eduction purposes seem like a noble thing to do already, there's more than it meets the eye.
Apart from integrating the Google Play for Education system, with additional NFC for easy setup in the classroom, Samsung also claims that this new Galaxy Tab will be pre-installed with Android KitKat v4.4. And since the press release for the same states that the tablets won't be arriving before April, expectations are high about Samsung releasing the update for the tablet before April.
As revealed via the company, the Galaxy Tab for the education model will only be available for schools and other large volume buyers via Samsung's distribution partners. However, pricing details for the same hasn't been revealed.
