  • Above Acer unveils the Chromebook Tab

Google rolled out the first official Android tablets in 2011, and consumers seemed at least somewhat interested for a few years.

Of course, being a newer Chromebook product, it not only runs Chrome OS, but Google Play apps as well.

"Because Chrome OS lets students securely share devices, Chromebook tablets are flawless for computer carts", Google For Education Group Product Manager Cyrus Mistry wrote in a blog post. Convertibles with touchscreens that can be used in several modes are also popular, with Google now expanding the operating system to dedicated tablets. Meant to cover a wide range of K-12 students, the Chromebook Tab 10 attempts to offer the best of both worlds - that is, it'll boast the perks of Chrome OS in a package that's easy to use and carry around. The rear 5MP camera enables students to capture video and images.

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 will be aimed at K-12 classrooms, and the Taiwanese tech giant will be hoping to emulate the success of Chromebooks in US classrooms with a different form factor.

Now, the bigger story here outside of this specific tablet is the future from Chrome OS on additional tablet devices. This IPS panel supports an included Wacom EMR stylus that does not need a battery and can be seamlessly inserted into the tablet for storage. Just like Chromebook laptops, students can quickly and securely log on to any device for a personalized learning experience and just as easily log out from all apps when class is over.

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 features a 9.7 inch 2048×1535 pixel resolution LCD display with an OP1 processor that integrates dualcore Cortex-A72 and quadcore Cortex-A53 processors alongside 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

Starting today, with the new Acer Chromebook Tab 10, we're doing just that.

The Chromebook Tab 10 will have a 34Wh battery inside, charged via the USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 port, that Acer says will last 9 hours of use - basically a full school day.

Acer has confirmed today that the Chromebook Tab 10 is going to be available to education and commercial customers in North America for $329 starting next month.
