Google Unveils Acer’s Chromebook Tab 10 Ahead of Apple’s Education-Focused Event Tomorrow

An anonymous reader shares a report: Maybe Acer knows what Apple is up to tomorrow, maybe not. Regardless the information and communication tech company announced today the world’s first Chrome OS tablet made for the education market, the Chromebook Tab 10. Designed for use in K-12 classrooms, the 9.7-inch tablet could potentially add to Google’s Chromebook lead in the US education market and take some of the wind out of Apple’s education-focused press conference on March 27. […] Acer’s new tablet, which will sell for $329 in April, is built around a 2048×1536-resolution IPS touchscreen with 264 pixels per inch. A durable Wacom EMR stylus comes standard and stores in the tablet’s chassis that’s only 0.39-inch thick (9.98 mm). Running on a Rockchip OP1 processor, 4GB of memory and 32GB of storage, the Tab 10 fully supports Google Play giving schools access to educational Android apps.
