Intel has today unveiled a couple of new devices that have been aimed at the education sector, including the Intel Education Tablet and the Intel Classmate PC.
The tablet is probably the more useful or rather interesting of the two, featuring some cool accessories that allow it to help with kids learning, particularly in terms of science. The tablet will work with a snap-on magnification lens as well as a plug-in thermal probe, allowing the tablet to show details about science things.
The tablet also features an Intel Atom Z2520 processor with an optional 3G modem, as well as Android pre-installed and a rubber bumper on the sides that will allow it to survive drops of up to 70cm and become water resistant.
There’s also integrated front and rear facing cameras, with a 12 hour battery life.
The Classmate PC is the second new product, featuring a 10-inch screen that has the option to add touchscreen capabilities, as well as a N2806 Celeron processor, with Windows 8.1 pre-installed.
There will also be other versions of the PC that run on wither Windows 7 or Linux with a Celeron N2805 processor, these will be coming at some point later this year.
The Classmate PCs will be available later this month, and as of yet the tablet release date is yet to be revealed.
