The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Education was built to address the unique needs of K-12 schools.
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.
Today, Samsung is fulfilling its word. The newly-announced Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Education is perfect for scalable 1:1 computing initiatives in K-12 schools.
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.
