Acer Chromebook Tab 10 aims at education 

Google has been pushing hard with its Chrome OS devices but although there have been a few notebooks with touchscreens, the new Acer Chromebook Tab 10 is the first proper tablet with Chrome OS.

Based on a 9.7-inch 2048x1536 resolution IPS touchscreen, it runs on a six-core Rockchip's OP1 SoC with two Cortex-A72 and four Cortex-A53 cores, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD card slot.

As it is aimed at students, Acer was quite keen to note that it easily fits in a backpack or desk with its 172.2x238.2x9.98mm dimensions and isn't that hard to carry around due to its 550g weight.

The rest of the specifications include 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, stereo speakers, 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, USB Type-C port and even a battery-free Wacom EMR stylus. According to Acer's own product page, it should have an unknown battery that should keep it alive for around 10 hours.

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 (D651N) will be available to education and commercial customers in the US in April, priced at US $329, while the EMEA region should get it in May, at €329.
