A few of the Promevo staff are enjoying #FETC 2014 here in Orlando, FL. When we left Cincinnati it was -6°. When we arrived in Orlando it was 80°. We aren’t complaining.
For us, the weather isn’t the only exciting thing about #FETC. Last night here in Orlando Samsung announced that they have designed it’s Galaxy Tab 3 (10.1 inch screen) for integration with Google Play for Education.
Tod Pike, senior vice president of Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division, said, “Samsung and Google for Education share a commitment to delivering innovative learning experiences to improve student outcomes. The new Galaxy Tab with Google Play for Education integration was created to specifically address the needs of today’s schools and support our vision for powering education by empowering educators.”
With a 10.1-inch WXGA display, the new Galaxy Tab for Education provides students an exceptional viewing experience and the 16:10 aspect ratio is ideal for viewing educational content. It will feature 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.
The new Galaxy Tab 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.
Samsung’s new education tablet is set to expand its lineup of Android-powered Galaxy devices and complements the company’s broad portfolio of technology solutions for K-12 education. Available from April, the new Galaxy Tab for education will be sold through Samsung distribution and channel partners.
Promevo is dedicated to the advancement of technology in education. We are excited that two magnificent companies like Google and Samsung have joined forces to advance the same cause.
