Google, Acer team up to unveil the Chromebook Tab 10

As mentioned, the laptop will go on sale with prices starting at $329 and will initially be available in North America. The new Acer tablet is the first tablet to run Google's Chrome OS. Design-wise, the tablet appears to be quite solid and is being marketed heavily towards the education market.

As far as specifications are concerned, the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 is fitted with a 9.7-inch IPS LCD touch display that delivers a QXGA resolution of 2,048×1,536 pixels and pixel density of 264ppi. It has got both front and rear cameras. It is fuelled by a battery that claims to provide 9 hours of playtime.

IT administrators can manage the new Acer Chromebook Tab 10 as easily as any of the other Chrome OS-based devices on their campus. Even though this is just another one, Acer has stated that the Chromebook Tab 10 has been created to be slim and lightweight in order for it to be suitable for a classroom.

Baskin, 22, and Bieber , 24, attended Craig David's concert together in Los Angeles this weekend and left in the same auto . At the same time that Selena was partying on a Miami boat, Justin was seen all over L.A. with that mystery blonde woman.

Now that Chrome OS supports touchscreen input, and can run a selection of Android apps very happily, it makes sense for Google to start promoting Chrome OS tablets instead. "The new Acer Chromebook Tab 10 encourages students to discover new ways of understanding the world around them", said James Lin, General Manager, Commercial & Detachable Notebooks, IT Products Business at Acer while commenting on the launch. The Chromebook also includes a Wacom EMR stylus which does not need a battery. Apps like Texthelp EquatIO let students show their work by hand writing any math expression and adding it to a Google Doc in one click. Acer's announcement of the Tab 10 is essentially throwing down the glove at Apple and only time will tell which company will prevail. Powering the tablet is an OP1 chipset built by Rockchip, paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage.

On paper, the Chromebook Tab 10 is similar to Samsung's Chromebook Plus, albeit heftier - likely to resist the hard-knock life of the primary school world - or worlds beyond the classroom. Since this tablet is designed for education, it will have full support for Google Classroom and Chrome Education license, both of which are sold separately, as pointed out by Android Central. Look at the Pixelbook, which is essentially a Chrome OS tablet with a keyboard attached.
