Intel goes back to school with StudyBook tablet

Chipzilla getting down with the kids

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Intel is set to follow-up on its Classmate PC for school kids with a tablet for the education market, currently dubbed the StudyBook.

The Register has learnt that the device will be launched next week.

The 10-in tablet will feature dual operating systems and run Intel’s Medfield chips, according to a Digitimes report referencing “sources from PC players”.

It’s set for launch in emerging markets including China and Brazil in the second half of the year targeting the education market as well as regular retail channels, and should come in at a bargain $299 (£188) or less.

Taiwanese notebook OEM Elitegroup Computer Systems, which already makes Chipzilla’s Classmate PC devices, and Chinese manufacturer Malata are set to be the first to start producing the tablet, according to the report.

With Medfield-powered smartphones already heading to the UK, China and other markets, it makes sense that Intel is now turning its attention to the tablet space.

Although there are few details on specs, Windows and Android are the most likely operating systems to run on the dual-OS device.

As for the education sector, Intel has already had some success with its long-running Classmate PC project, especially in emerging markets.

Most recently, Lenovo launched a version of the 10-inch netbook for school kids, featuring 1GB of memory, a 250GB hard drive and a a 1.8GHz Atom N455 processor.

Intel told The Reg it doesn’t comment on rumour or speculation. ®
