Chrome OS Tablets Are Official—meet The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 to be launch by edwinphone54(m): 11:35am On Mar 27, 2018
Chrome OS tablets have been expected for years, and today Acer and Google are finally teaming up to launch the first ever model: the Chromebook Tab 10. It's pretty standard budget tablet hardware with Chrome OS loaded on it. There's no keyboard—just a touchscreen and a passive Wacom stylus.

Google wrote a blog post pitching the device as a new piece of education hardware. Chrome OS notebooks dominate in the education sector, and this tablet easily plugs into that ecosystem, with identical apps and security configurations. The lack of a keyboard will mean that typing out long homework assignments won't be ideal, though. Tomorrow, Apple is holding an education-focused event where it is widely expected to announce a cheaper iPad, and it seems like Google is trying to steal some of educators' attention with this announcement.

The hardware seems like any other non-iPad tablet. You get a 9.7-inch 2048 x 1536 IPS LCD, Google's "OP1" processor branding (in previous devices, this meant a Rockchip RK3399 SoC), 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 2MP front camera, a 5MP rear camera, and a 34Wh battery. It has a USB-C port, microSD slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.1. The device ships in April in North America for $329, and it will be available to "education and commercial customers." In Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, the Chromebook Tab 10 will
launch in May for €329, including VAT.
