Acer Chromebook Tab 10 Is World's First Chrome OS Tablet

It can be noted that this nearly the same price as that of the Apple's entry-level iPad. Not to be outdone, Google's first tablet, powered by the same operating system found on the millions of Chromebook laptops in classrooms across the USA, was unveiled today, March 26.

"The Chromebook Tab 10 has a 9.7" display with a 2,048 by 1,536 resolution, making it one of the tablets with a bigger screen on the market. Since it is a tablet designed for education, the tablet is bundled with a Wacom EMR stylus.

The Taiwanese manufacturer is also employing a 2048×1536 IPS screen powered by the OP1 processor (made by Rockchip) sporting two ARM Cortex-A72 cores, and additional four Cortex-A53 cores. It features a 5-megapixel camera on the rear panel and a 2-megapixel camera on the front side. When compared to the iPad, the Chromebook is actually a bit heavier and also a bit thicker.

The tablet will ship out with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage, as well as a battery expected to last up to 9 hours. Plus, it doesn't require a battery and is resistant to accidental drops. The Chrome OS, until now could run on laptops, desktops, and convertibles.

Canada confirmed it was expelling four Russians, Ukraine 13, Albania two, Norway two and Macedonia two. Turnbull said in Canberra this afternoon.

"Starting today, with the new Acer Chromebook Tab 10, we're doing just that". We've listened carefully to feedback from educators around the world, and one common theme is that they want all the benefits of Chromebooks in a tablet form. In addition to those specs, the Chromebook Tab 10 has stylus support, a feature inspired by the Galaxy Note series in Samsung.

Based on the provided images it does seem as though bezels are prominent here although that is likely to play to the device's strength considering this tablet is aimed at the education sector and likely to be used by multiple students during its lifespan. Additionally, the Tab 10 supports augmented reality in the classroom such as Google's Expeditions AR. The tablet will be initially available in North America and will go on sale in Europe, the Middle East and Africa markets from May this year.

The tablet comes just ahead of Apple's education focused event tomorrow at which the company is expected to unveil a cheaper iPad, possibly with Apple Pencil support. At the back there is a 5MP camera.
