  • Above Acer unveils the Chromebook Tab

The iPhone maker is hosting a special education-focused event that promises "creative new ideas for teachers and students". Even though this is just another one, Acer has stated that the Chromebook Tab 10 has been created to be slim and lightweight in order for it to be suitable for a classroom.

Rather, it's a classic, all-screen 9.7-inch tablet featuring an IPS (in-plane switching) panel with a fairly high 2,048 x 1,536 QXGA resolution.

Dubbed the Chromebook Tab 10, the 9.7-inch device is squarely aimed at the education sector, namely teachers and students from kindergarten all the way up to grade 12.

"As the name implies, its screen size is close to 10". This means a wider range of students, including younger ones with smaller hands, can handle the device and engage with the intuitive touch display as they navigate, zoom and spin through their lessons.

The Chromebook Tab 10 sports one single USB port on the side of the device and this is a USB 3.1 Type-C port, which is capable of data transfer speeds up to 5Gbps. There is a 2MP HD webcam at the front along with dual microphones. It can be placed in the chassis dock for secure storage. The stylus will not require batteries, nor will it need a charge. The tablet packs a 34Wh battery that is claimed to provide up to 9 hours of battery life. It's called the Acer Chromebook Tab 10, which is a bit confusing given that the product is not a laptop, but a slate coming sans keyboard.

AndroidAuthority is reporting that Acer is launching the first tablet running Chrome OS. They can make updates, configure apps, as well as manage extensions and policies with the Chrome Education license1. Even if a device is lost, stolen or damaged, students won't lose their information.

It comes with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (that can be expanded with a microSD slot) and a headphone jack.

Additional connectivity support includes 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. The Acer tablet packs in a 5MP camera at the back with a 2MP shooter on the front for the objective of video calling which is also installed with dual speakers on the sides. Additionally, the Tab 10 supports augmented reality in the classroom such as Google's Expeditions AR.
