  • Acer's Chromebook Tab 10 is ready to take on your schoolwork.                  Acer

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 will cost $329 and will be sold in the educational and commercial realms across North America from April, while it will land in Europe and other markets in May for €329.

Chrome OS was first announced by Google back in 2009, though the first retail machines didn't arrive on the market until 2011.

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. And imaging is handled by a 2MP front camera and a 5MP at the rear. After years of only allowing its hardware partners to put Chrome OS on devices with a laptop or desktop form factor, the first official Chrome OS tablet has appeared. Google - with its Chromebook Tab 10 - is possibly looking to divert some of educators' attention with this announcement.

Acer is touting the tablet as a flawless learning device for students in K-12 and its ease of deployment for school IT admins. The new $259 iPad will be measured against the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 in terms of features and specs. The Tab 10 has stylus support and even comes with one from graphic-tablet maker Wacom.

The Chromebook Tab 10 runs on the web-based Chrome OS interface but if you ever get fed up with browsing the Internet, the tablet also offers support for running Android apps and games.

OnePlus 6 full specs leaked online
While this price tag is more than earlier OnePlus phones, it still is a lot less than flagship devices from Apple or Samsung. Another variant of the alleged OnePlus 6 was revealed in the previous leak with a RAM of 8GB and 256GB of internal storage .

The Chromebook Tab 10 sports one single USB port on the side of the device and this is a USB 3.1 Type-C port, which is capable of data transfer speeds up to 5Gbps. The stylus will not require batteries, nor will it need a charge.

Powering the device is an OP1 (Rockchip) six-core processor alongside 4GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage.

Additional connectivity support includes 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. Expeditions AR is Google's AR tech which maps the classroom and then places 3D objects in it so that students can study them, to help make subjects such as biology, geography and astronomy easier to comprehend.

It runs the same full-featured Chrome OS already found on existing tablet convertibles with a dock at the bottom of the screen that features touch tools for quickly creating a note, taking a screenshot, and magnifying.
