Samsung Galaxy Tab® 4 Education is Ready for Class

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced the availability of the new Galaxy Tab® 4 Education – its first tablet specifically designed to support scalable 1:1 computing initiatives in K-12 schools. The rugged, student-friendly, 10.1-inch tablet – which integrates with Google Play for Education and can be managed easily via a web-based console – is available now for school districts planning deployments for the 2014-2015 academic year.

“Samsung is committed to powering education by empowering educators, and this requires technology that is built specifically for the classroom environment,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “This new Galaxy Tab, designed for education, is an important step toward achieving that vision as it combines the accessibility and engagement of our leading tablet devices with simple, intuitive management tools to foster a more interactive and effective learning environment.”

The Galaxy Tab 4 Education was created to address the unique needs of K-12 classrooms, specifically durability, manageability and access to digital learning resources. Through integration with Google Play for Education, the new Galaxy Tab gives educators access to a wide selection of teacher-approved apps, books and videos, helping them deliver more engaging and personalized learning to each student. Acquiring content is easy too, thanks to easy-to-manage purchase orders.

For districts seeking to scale up 1:1 initiatives, a web-based console – available from Google for $30 per device for school districts – enables IT administrators to easily manage and update the fleet of devices, freeing up resources for technology training and development. The Galaxy Tab 4 Education also includes Near Field Communications (NFC) technology, making it easy for IT to quickly set up a classroom of devices with just a few taps.

Additionally, Samsung announced that the Galaxy Tab 4 Education will be compatible with a future upgrade to Samsung School, its interactive classroom management solution that combines with classroom displays and other technology.

Bundled with a protective case and featuring Corning® Gorilla® Glass, the new Galaxy Tab 4 Education is durable and ready for classroom use. With a 10.1-inch WXGA display (1280x800), it provides students an exceptional viewing experience and the 16:10 aspect ratio is ideal for viewing educational content.

Students can do more at once with Samsung’s MultiWindow® feature that allows user to have two apps open side-by-side. The device features the latest version of Android (version 4.4 or Kit Kat), WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n support for better connectivity, and rear- and front-facing cameras so students can easily capture images and collaborate with peers through video web chats. Up to 10 hours of battery life ensures students can keep learning uninterrupted throughout the school day.

The Galaxy Tab 4 Education comes standard with 16GB memory, with a MicroSD Card Slot for up to 64GB of additional storage. Optional accessories include a connected USB keyboard, AllShare Cast for wireless mirroring of content to displays, and charge carts for easy classroom storage.

The tablet expands Samsung’s lineup of Android-powered Galaxy devices and complements the company’s broad portfolio of technology solutions for K-12 education. The Galaxy Tab 4 Education is now available with an MSRP of $369.99 through Samsung distribution and channel partners.
