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
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.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
