Toronto Based Company Launches Android Education Tablets

A Canadian company based in Toronto called Senkatel has just launched its own brand of Android tablet devices on to the market. The company is looking to grab itself a slice of the K-12 educational market though with this release, so the company is trying to distinguish its release from every other run of the mill tablet device that is launching nowadays while running the Android mobile operating system.

The Toronto company has built two tablets with the first one, the T9702, boasting a 9.7 inch 1024x768 resolution LCD screen while the other version, the T1011, boasts a 10.1 inch 1280x800 resolution HD LCD screen. The devices both come packing Intel Atom processors and will be selling for $219 and $299 respectively.

Among some of the features that the new educational tablets will come with include In Plane Switching which is a technology that will clear out color reproduction when viewing the screen from off axis angles. 

The devices also include Intel Educational Software which will assist the schools in using the tablets for teaching purposes. The software allows for teachers to block access to certain websites so there is no need to worry about students logging on to Facebook on the browser and there is also the capability of remotely managing the devices.

The tablets have also been ruggedized so that they are tough enough to withstand being dropped many times and they are also water resistant. These features ensure that the devices will last for quite a while after being purchased. Bluetooth 3.0 also allows for wireless integration with a keyboard too.

What do you think of this latest Android tablet to hit the educational market and what are some of your favorite educational tablets?

  • and they can also lower the price of the text books too

  • Good. Now we just need to get the publishers on board so they'll start producing e-textbooks instead of print books. It's sad when 80lb kids have to carry 60lbs worth of books to school.

    I agree.....The tablets should be subsidized and all thats needed is one or the other preferably the 10.1.

  • That's a tough call when you can get top-spec tablets for less. I mean the new Nexus 7 (while smaller) is going to be a powerhouse and costs the same. I think educational tablets should be subsidized heavily and made as affordable as is humanly possible to make up for the limitations on components. Not sure why you'd have a 9.7'' model and a 10.1'' - kinda the same, no?
