Neighbourhood Technology Desk/Avi Arya: Google, just a day before Apple’s announcement of possible new iPads for the education sector, has introduced the firm Chrome OS-based tablet in the market. Made by Acer, the new tablet is aimed at school students. Although this may seem to be the end of Android tablets, it still can run nearly all the Android apps given the nature of the OS. We are yet to see how much of a success does ChromeOS on a tablet prove to be.
The tablet features a 9.7-inch QXGA (2048 x 1536 pixels) IPS touch display with 264 pixels per inch. There is a 2MP HD webcam at the front along with dual microphones. At the back there is a 5MP camera. Acer claims the Chromebook Tab 10 to deliver a battery life of up to nine hours.
