Samsung is getting into the education market.
Google Play for Education, a schools-focused version of the Android app store, is integrated into the tablet. It gives teachers and administrators access to an array of apps, books, and videos that they can pay for with purchase orders.
The Galaxy Tab 4 Education will also be eligible for a future upgrade to Samsung School, an interactive classroom management program that connects the tablets to in-classroom displays and other available technology.
Additionally, a Web-based console is available for $30 per unit, allowing IT administrators to easily manage and update the devices, or it is usable with any MDM solution that supports Samsung’s Android tablets.
Specs for Samsung’s New Tablets for Education
The Galaxy Tab 4 Education has a 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass display with a 1280×800 resolution. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat and features 16GB of built-in storage (expandable by up to 64GB more via a microSD card slot). The device also has Wi-Fi connectivity, rear and front-facing cameras, up to 10 hours of battery life and Samsung’s MultiWindow feature, which allows two apps to be open side-by-side.
The tablet, which comes bundled with a protective case, is available through Samsung distribution and channel partners.
