Taiwanese hardware manufacturer Acer and Google announced a partnership to make Android powered tablet devices pre-loaded with educational content for U.S. K-8 schools.
The 10 inch tablets will be equipped with Google Play for Education, giving teachers and learners access to a wide variety of teacher approved applications.
Acer expects that Android based tablets will see similar success in the education sector as Google Chrome based laptops, which saw tremendous growth in 2014. The company is the leader in the Chromebook segment with a 40% market share, according to Gartner.
Last week Acer presented its latest Google Chrome laptops for the education space at BETT in London.
