A new 10.1-inch tablet has recently been announced by Samsung at FETC 2014. It is a New Galaxy Tab that is exclusively designed for education and will work with Google Play for Education. The new device will be available for K-12 school deployments for the 2014-2015 academic year. Launching as part of the Google Play for Education program, the classroom-ready, 10.1-inch tablet will offer simple set up and device management, access to curated educational content, and other features to support dynamic, digital teaching and learning. Available from April, the new Galaxy Tab for education will be sold through Samsung distribution and channel partners.

The new education-specific Galaxy Tab is designed for integration with Google Play for Education, Google's content store for K-12 schools. Fyi, Google Play for Education gives educators access to a wide selection of teacher-approved apps, books, and videos, helping them deliver more engaging and personalized learning to each student. Teachers can search for content by grade, subject and standard (including Common Core), make purchases using a pre-loaded school PO rather than a credit card, and deliver content to students' tablets in a matter of seconds.

So what is the specifications of the new Galaxy Tab for Education? Coming with a 10.1-inch WXGA display, the new tablet provides students an exceptional viewing experience and the 16:10 aspect ratio is ideal for viewing educational content. The education-specific Galaxy Tab will also be equipped with the latest version of Android (version 4.4 or Kit Kat), WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n support for better connectivity, and rear- and front-facing cameras to make capturing images and web chats easy. It will also include Near Field Communications (NFC) technology, so administrators can quickly and easily set up a classroom of devices with a few taps. Google also provides a web-based management console that will allow schools to easily manage and configure their entire fleet of devices.
