16 July 2012 - Intel has just introduced an Intel studybook, a tablet that is part of the Intel Learning Series family and features classroom-ready features and capabilities that include specialised educational software. Purpose-built for 1:1 e-learning, a studybook’s innovative features include front and rear cameras, microphone, light sensor support project-based inquiry and mobile learning environments. It comes with a capacitive multi-touch LCD screen and is based on an Intel Atom processor Z650.
The tablet reference design is constructed from a single piece of plastic and includes shock-absorbers around the screen. It is designed to withstand accidental drops from a standard student desk and is also water and dust- resistant. The device is expected to retail at roughly around USD 250 – USD 300.
