existing solutions and services to offer school leaders, school IT
administrators and educators the support they need to create an
learning experience for each student.
"Our commitment to innovation in education runs deep, and the Latitude
10 essentials configuration offers the robust accessibility features and
personalized learning experience educators, students, and parents tell
us they need for a productive classroom," said Mark Horan, Dell global
education vice president. "An end-to-end education solutions provider,
Dell designed this tablet with schools in mind to provide an affordable,
efficient device that is a snap to manage and deploy while protecting
previous investments in applications and other classroom devices."
The Latitude 10 is equipped with Microsoft (News - Alert) Windows 8 designed to
increase learning productivity and collaboration by maximizing learning
time with instant access to resources through the Instant-On with
Connected Stand-By mode feature. The new tablet is powered by Intel's (News - Alert)
