Samsung has created yet another tablet for the education sector, the Galaxy Tab 4 Education, which is (a little) more than just a rebranded version of its affordable 10.1-inch slate. The device is designed to be rugged with a protective shell and there are various features onboard that are aimed towards students.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Education comes with educational content such as apps, books and videos, and the company has also thrown in Google Play for Education which costs $30. The tablet will be compatible Samsung School which is scheduled to arrive through a future update. Android 4.4 KitKat runs the show here and the hardware features are basically the same as what you’ll find on the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1. Also, TouchWiz and its accompanying utilities like Multi Window will also be present.
The display features WXGA (1280 x 800p) resolution with protection from Corning Gorilla Glass. Ticking away on the inside is a 1.2GHz quad core processor, while memory needs are in the hands of 1.5GB RAM, 16GB flash storage and a microSD card slot with up to 64GB support. The tablet can deliver around 10 hours of battery life on a single charge. There are accessories being offered for the tablet as well. They include a USB keyboard and the AllShare Cast for wireless mirroring amongst others.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Education has a retail price of $369.99 which is $50 more than the original, probably to cover for Google Play for Education and the rugged shell. More information on the tablet can be found at this link.
