Acer Chromebook Tab 10 with Chrome OS launched; Specs, features and price

Acer unveils the Chromebook Tab 10 for $329, the first Chrome OS tablet

At $329, the Chromebook Tab 10 is still quite an expensive piece of hardware, costlier than the current line of Chromebooks but if an iPad alternative is what you're looking for, Acer and Google have brought out a potential candidate in the tablet race.

Apple is expected to unveil its cheapest 9.7-inch iPad ever, a device targeting those users who would otherwise consider a Chromebook for their education needs.

Acer has launched the world's first tablet that runs on Chrome OS, the management-friendly Google platform that leads the U.S. education market for cheap laptops and 2-in-1s.

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 responds quickly and can run multiple apps at once, as it's powered by an OP1 Processor that integrates dual-core Cortex-A72 and quad-core Cortex-A53 processors. The Tab 10 has a 5 MP rear and 2 MP front-facing cameras - yeah, we should not expect the best images, but then again, tablets have never excelled at taking pictures. When compared to the iPad, the Chromebook is actually a bit heavier and also a bit thicker.

Save the World launched July 21, and Battle Royale followed on September 26, with the bulk of the work taking place after July 25. If the dual Heavy Shotguns trick catches on, fans can expect Epic to react with another nerf in the near future.

The new Acer Chromebook Tab 10 includes a USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 port, which can be used to charge the device as well as other products, transfer data quickly up to 5Gbps, and connect to an HD display. Battery life, meanwhile, is at up to 9 hours for the Chrome OS tablet. The stylus will not require batteries, nor will it need a charge. Now customers can enjoy the ease-of-use found in Chrome OS while also using Android apps in a tablet form factor. Sticker price in the United States will be US$329 (RM1350), which is decent for a tablet its size. Along with Google Enterprise License support for IT management, the tablet will support Expeditions AR.

Apple's March 27 field trip is all about education, but the company has a tough task trying to gain share from Google's Chromebook, G Suite, and Google Classroom stack. Acer's Chromebook Tab 10 will take on Apple's upcoming low-priced education-focused iPad. 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.

Goggle's ChromeOS will be familiar with many educational establishments thanks to the popularity of ChromeBook laptops in the sector.

Google tried to make Android tablets a thing, and that seemed to work for a minute but ultimately ended up being a wasted effort.
