Intel reveals specs of tablet for schoolchildren

Intel just officially announced its Studybook tablet for students. Part of the company's Learing Series, the device sports a rugged design and is preloaded with tailored educational software. The seven-inch tablet sports a 1024x600-resolution touchscreen and a 1.2GHz Atom Z650 processor. In a unique touch, it can be made to run on either Android or Windows 7, depending on the wishes of the school district that buys it.

Other hardware specs include front and rear cameras, a microphone, and a light sensor. The screen is shock-mounted, and the device can reportedly shake off drops from the height of a standard student desk, which is about 2.3 feet. It's also water- and dust-resistant. Ports include one USB 2.0, one HDMI, a headphone jack, and a microSD memory card slot. There is 1GB of RAM in all versions, while the storage space can be specified at between 4GB and 32GB in a hard drive, with a 128GB SSD also available.

Preloaded software includes classroom management, a LabCam application, and a Kno e-reader app.

Intel builds the hardware, offering it to other companies to badge as their own. As such, it hasn't revealed pricing, but did indicate that an entry-level price of about $200 per device to a school board is possible in bulk shipments.
