Acer Chromebook Tab 10 Launched as First Chrome OS Tablet: Price, Specifications

Acer includes a Wacom EMR stylus that stashes in the Tab 10.                  Acer

Acer and Google announced the first Chrome OS tablet a day before Apple is scheduled to introduce a low-priced iPad with Apple Pencil support. The iPhone maker is hosting a special education-focused event that promises "creative new ideas for teachers and students".

The tablet will go on sale in the United States in April for $329 a pop.

According to DroidLife, the product will not be restricted for sale in the education space - mass market consumers will be able to purchase the new device. What's even crazier is that Apple's new iPad might be even cheaper than the Acer Chromebook Tab 10.

In Australia, Acer has risen to market leadership for its supply in the education industry. The Chromebook Tab 10, made by Acer, runs the same Chrome OS found on existing convertible devices, and it also shows how Google sees more value for Chrome OS over Android in the tablet segment.

Now touchscreen Chromebooks are nothing new, such as Google's own Pixelbook and the Samsung Chromebook Pro, but they've always come with a keyboard in traditional laptop clamshell form.

Well, the cat is officially out of the bag as Acer lifted the veil on the first ever Chrome OS tablet. Acer claims the Chromebook Tab 10 to deliver a battery life of up to nine hours.

No Relief for Dreamers in US Govt's Latest Spending Bill
He also appeals to Congress for a line-item veto that would grant him the ability to nix spending he disagrees with. The spending bill had been negotiated by Trump's own aides - with sign-off from the boss on every major decision.

"Starting today, with the new Acer Chromebook Tab 10, we're doing just that". It is mainly designed as an educational tablet for Chrome OS which is ideal to be used by students.

To give students additional ways to interact with the Acer Chromebook Tab 10, the device comes standard with a Wacom EMR stylus.

In the camera department, the tablet comes equipped with a 5MP resolution camera on the back and a 2MP camera on the front.

Under the hood you'll find an OP1 CPU that bonds dual-core Cortex-A72 and quad-core Cortex-A53 silicon, plus 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

The Acer Chrome OS tablet is supposed to ship next month in the USA, and in May in other regions around the world. Being a major player in the Chromebook for education sector, Acer has a lot to lose if Apple returns its Sauron-like gaze upon this end of the tech world as expected. As for the connectivity, customers get support for 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 port, 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card reader.
