Studybook… A new interactive education !

Intel has just unveiled on Tuesday a new tablet, aimed especially for students, and called STUDYBOOK.

The company has already proposed an other device in the past that has aimed only for education: “CLASSMATE PC”, which was a 10.1″ low-cost personal computers for children in the developing world. Nowadays, more than 7 million students worldwide are still using Intel classmate PCs.

Intel worked really closely with manufacturers, regional distributors,  school and also governments in order to develop a new product that will perfectly fit the need  but also the technology trend.  The company doesn’t want to replace the “Classmate PC ” by the “Studybook”. It only want to propose a more portable and affordable device.

The Studybook tablet is not targeted at the consumer market, but at students in developping countries such as China and Brazil first. This ruggedized, purpose-built tablet for education will come with Intel® Learning Series (Intel® LS) software suite with students friendly design, a 7″ capacitive multi-touch LCD screen (1024 x 600 pixels resolution) and is based on an Intel® Atom™ processor Z650 (one core with Hyper-Threadink, 1.20GHz clock-speed, 512KB cache, 3W TDP).

The tablet will run with either Microsoft’s Windows 7 or Google’s Android operating systems. It will weight 525 grams (1.15 pounds) and will offer 5.5 hours of battery life on active usage. The Studybook will support up to 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, have a two digital cameras, USB port, SIM card slot, mini-SD card slot, Wi-Fi and a HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) port to connect the device to high-definition TVs.

The rugged tablet is molded in a single piece of plastic and includes shock-absorbers all around the screen. It is designed to withstand accidental drops from a standard student desk and is waterproof and dustproof. Young students, often owners of slippery fingers can so learn and have fun in and out of the classroom with a reduced stress for parents and teachers more concerned about damage.

An Intel studybook offers students limitless opportunities to enhance their learning experience. Expanding the Intel Learning Series portfolio of affordable, purpose-built educational devices brings us closer to our vision of enabling more students and teachers to participate in high quality education,” said Kapil Wadhera, general manager of Intel’s education market platform group.
