The First New Chrome OS Tab 10
For a long time people have been wondering when will the Chrome OS tablet be available.
Finally the Chrome OS Tab 10 is here. Google and Acer have partnerd to bring the Chrome Tab to life.
As obvious Google supplies the OS (operating system) and Acer supplies the hardware.
The Chrome Tab 10 is mainly focused on students more like Chrome Tab 10 Education.
The Chrome Tab is a pretty standard budget tablet hardware with Chrome OS loaded on it. There’s no keyboard—just a touchscreen and a passive Wacom stylus.
According to Googles blog post. Chrome OS lets students securely share devices, Chromebook tablets are perfect for computer carts. Just like Chromebook laptops, students can quickly and securely log on to any device for a personalized learning experience and just as easily log out from all apps when class is over. Verified boot checks security at every boot and all user data is encrypted, making each Chromebook tablet secure and shareable.
