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.

There's no word on United Kingdom pricing, but the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 will hit USA stores in April for $329, around £230.

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. "The new Acer Chromebook Tab 10 encourages students to discover new ways of understanding the world around them".

In Australia, Acer has risen to market leadership for its supply in the education industry. The new Acer Chromebook Tab 10 is a 9.7-inch tablet built around a QXGA 2048 x 1536 resolution IPS touch display.

AndroidAuthority is reporting that Acer is launching the first tablet running Chrome OS. And yes, they're called Chromebook Tablets, even though they are flat, and not almost as much like a "book" as the laptop. Tasked with writing out math equations to upload to Google Classroom, the students grabbed their new tablets from the cart, pulled out the stylus, and logged into Chrome.

The participants, survivors and people of America won't step back until their demands are taken care of by the government. On March 24, 2018, the victims of the Parkland shootings organized a March on Washington , D.C.

When it comes to pricing, you will be surprised the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 is only $329.

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. It runs the same full-featured Chrome OS already found on existing tablet convertibles with a dock at the bottom of the screen.

Powering the device is an OP1 (Rockchip) six-core processor alongside 4GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage. Connectivity wise, the tablet supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, a USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 4.1 Low Energy, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. 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. Sticker price in the U.S. will be US$329 (RM1350), which is decent for a tablet its size. Chromebook styli need no charging or pairing to work.

However, the Chromebook Tab 10 will arrive with a built-in stylus, as with the Galaxy Note smartphone series, and a microSD card slot for additional storage.
