• Intel is introducing what it calls the studybook, which runs on Google’s Android OS or Windows Mobile

    • It’s a portable device with a seven-inch touchscreen that is encased in particularly rugged plastic

    • The tablet should start at less than $200 each

    • Size and durability are essential, helping schools extend the learning process outside the classroom

    • The tablet’s front-facing camera can be enhanced with an add-on lens that turns it into a microscope

    • Students can observe and measure objects like the size of an insect’s leg or grains of sand

    • A camera application makes it easy to conduct time-lapse photography of phenomena such as plants turning toward sunlight
