Acer Debuts The Chromebook Tab 10 Tablet For Education

Posted by at 3:27 pm on March 26, 2018

Acer released the Chromebook Tab 10, a Chrome OS-based tablet targeted towards the education market. The 10” tablet packs surprisingly high-end specs, including a near-2K screen and Wacom EMR-based pen input.

The Chromebook Tab 10 is merely Acer’s newest addition to this lineup. Starting with the basic specs, the Tab 10 has a 2048 x 1536, 9.7” IPS screen, 4GB of memory, 32GB of storage, and 802.11 AC Wi-Fi. For I/O, the device has a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port, headphone jack, and MicroSD card reader.

The Tab 10 comes with an integrated stylus that works on Wacom EMR technology. This is what powers Wacom’s traditional drawing tablets, and it doesn’t require that the pen be battery-powered like in Wacom AES or N-trig-based notebooks.

The Tab 10 CPU is called the OP1.  The SoC is made by Rockchip and contains two ARM Cortex A72 cores and four Cortex A53 cores in a “big.LITTLE” configuration. This is old idea for a Soc – the powerful cores are only  used when necessary, and the power-efficient cores are used for all other tasks.

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 will be available only to education and commercial customers for $329.
