Besides the Achiever! application, the Kineo includes eReader software, a web browser, and an MP4 video player. Teachers or administrators can add other Android-based applications to the device, but students can’t add any software themselves.
The Kineo features a 7-inch touch-screen display, an 800 MHz dual-core processor, and an SD card slot for up to 32 gigabytes of memory. It also includes a USB port and an HDMI port for connecting the tablet to a projector or interactive whiteboard.
Students at several schools in Naples, Fla., tested the Kineo before its official launch at FETC.
“The Kineo … is like a portable textbook with study guides, calculators, [and] movies that is handy and portable, that you can pretty much bring anywhere instead of using textbooks and big bulky computers,” said Callie Lawfer, a student at Manatee Middle School. “I have a lot of trouble in math, and this device is just so helpful with that, because it has study guides and it lets me just practice all the things that I need.”
