Dell Introduces New Tablets and Laptops for Education
      #47701 - 02/12/15 06:55 PM

Dell today announced several new notebooks and tablets aimed at the education market. These new products include the Dell Chromebook 11, the Dell Venue 10 and Venue 10 Pro tablets, and the Dell Latitude 11 Education Series laptop and the Dell Interactive Projector S510. These new products join a great education portfolio that includes products like the Latitude 13 Education Series laptop, Dell Wyse thin clients for labs, and the Dell Precision M3800 mobile workstation for engineering and design students. Here's more info on these new Dell products:

Dell Latitude 11 Education Series

Along with fostering a collaborative learning environment, these new devices are "schoolyard tough" to withstand the bumps, drops and spills that are part of a student's daily life. All four products feature a rubberized trim to absorb shock when accidentally dropped. The Latitude 11 Education Series and the Dell Chromebook 11 have been subjected to MIL-STD 810G testing for pressure, temperature, shock and vibration, and both have a 180 degree LCD hinge design that reduces stress on the hinge.

Dell's latest line-up of devices builds on its existing end-to-end portfolio of education IT solutions, including Professional Learning Services and Education Data Management. By developing a comprehensive IT strategy, Dell helps schools create a productive, personalized digital learning environment focused on improving student outcomes. This holistic approach ensures teachers, administrators and students fully realize the learning potential of technology.

Dell Chromebook 11

Dell is building on the success of its first entry into the Chromebook market last year with the second generation Dell Chromebook 11. Designed for the modern classroom with school yard durability, the Dell Chromebook 11 features a range of innovative features including an anti-glare HD display with optional touchscreen, liquid-resistant keyboard and touchpad and front facing integrated HD video webcam, allowing students to easily collaborate. It also features advanced connectivity options including wireless 2x2 LAN, 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and up to 10 hours of battery life, so students can stay online throughout the day without being tethered to wires and chargers.

The new Dell Chromebook 11 is also the first to feature an "activity light," allowing teachers to easily monitor student activity and facilitate more meaningful interactions such as orchestrating student groups or facilitating quick quizzes and polls. The device can also be coupled with Google Apps for Education to provide a more open and connected classroom.

Dell Venue 10 pro

Dell is also releasing two new Venue tablets that provide students and consumers with productivity and flexible computing, wherever they do their learning. Both the Dell Venue 10 (Android 5.0, Lollipop) and Dell Venue 10 Pro (Windows 8.1) feature a 10.1 inch HD or Full HD display to help bring content to life, and allow students to work in five different positions when configured with the optional, attachable and reversible keyboard. The five positions make the most of different learning environments and include: clamshell for test scenarios and to use as a laptop, tent and stand positions to promote collaboration and sharing, and slate configuration for keyboard storage while in tablet mode. An optional active stylus also provides the pen and paper "inking" experience on a tablet.

Dell Venue 10

The Dell Venue 10, based on Android 5.0, is one of the first tablets to be certified with Google Play for Education. Equipped with Near Field Communication (NFC), teachers can instantly download content to students by simply bumping devices, making it even easier for every student to seamlessly access digital content.

The Dell Latitude 11 Education Series is a purpose-built laptop that provides students with a solution fully equipped for learning and allows parents and educators to rest easy knowing their children are using the most secure, manageable and reliable education solution on the market. The latest Dell services and appliances help make the Latitude 11 Education Series simple to integrate into a wider device infrastructure. Dell's exclusive mobility and managed cart solution lets IT managers push software updates overnight and gives educators the confidence that laptops are fully updated, charged and ready to go from the first bell to last with no cables to connect. The Latitude 11 is also capable of delivering comprehensive encryption, advanced authentication and leading-edge malware prevention from a single source via the award-winning Dell Data Protection portfolio.

The Latitude 11 Education Series provides an 11.6-inch touch or non-touch display with Corning Gorilla Glass NBT, full-size keyboard and ultimate durability, providing peace of mind even in the messiest locations such as art classes and cafeterias. Not only is the device subjected to MIL-STD 810G testing for pressure, temperature, shock and vibration, but the Latitude 11 Education Series also provides an exclusive fully sealed keyboard and touch pad to protect against spills, while also providing a rubberized LCD and base trim to provide superb drop protection.

Dell is also helping teachers make lessons more engaging with the release of the Dell Interactive Projector S510. This state-of-the-art classroom peripheral allows students to actively engage with the projected content and has built-in WiFi, Miracast and Intel WiDi technology for easy wireless content sharing.
