Samsung has been helping schools with its special line of tablets. In January this year, the company promised a tablet that will be made exclusively for K-12 schools. Samsung partnered with Google's education program, which recently launched Google Play for Education.
The tablet is integrated with Google Play for Education, providing access to educational apps, videos, and books. Of course, schools will need to buy these apps.
Samsung is also offering a $30 web-based console that allows teachers and IT administrators to manage apps and install software updates.
Samsung also managed to encase the tablet in a protective case to make it durable. Even better, Corning's Gorilla Glass technology is baked into the screen.
The Galaxy Tab 4 Education features a 10.1-inch display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 1.5GB RAM, 16GB of ROM, a rather poor 3-megapixel camera on the back, a 1.3-megapixel front shooter, a 6,800 mAh battery, microSD support, NFC capabilities, and Android 4.4 KitKat.
Interested schools can now purchase the tablet for $369.99 via Samsung distribution and channel partners.
