Other notable features of Intel’s education tablet include a mobile PDF reader, eReader software, skoool content, math and science videos from Khan Academy, English Language Learning resources from the British Council, a collection of digital literacy resources, professional development courses, McAfee Mobile Security, and a Theft Deterrent solution.
Highlights include an Intel Atom Z2420 processor and Android 4.1 for the 7-inch model, while the 10-inch model is powered by an Atom 2460 chip and Android 4.0. Each comes with 1GB of RAM, with the 7-inch Education Tablet including 8GB of flash storage and the 10-inch version coming with 16GB.

Intel had not released pricing information on these new Android-based tablets as of press time, but with so many other education tablets crowding the market, Intel likely will offer competitive pricing for volume purchases.
“Intel remains committed to helping teachers and students achieve better results through the development of complete solutions that span the hardware, software, and digital content required for a 21st-century learning experience,” said John Galvin, vice president of Intel’s sales and marketing group and general manager of Intel Education. “The tablet we are introducing is one additional step in a 10-year journey.”
The new tablets won’t be part of Intel’s Classmate line of products; because they are reference designs rather than final products, Intel’s system builder partners will brand their own versions of the devices, an Intel representative explained.
