"These new Chromebook tablets are lightweight and durable, allowing students to collaborate, create and learn from anywhere".

There's nothing here to tickle particularly the fancy gadget glands, but Cyrus Mistry, group product manager at Google for Education - surprise, surprise - noted that the Chromebook Tab 10 is being targeted at school students.

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 sports a 9.7-inch (2048x1536 pixels) display, similar to the 9.7-inch iPad. Students can login to any device for a personalized learning and log-out hassle-free when the class is over.

Yet wickets began to fall, with Simi Singh taking three crucial scalps as Ireland clawed their way back into the game. William Porterfield (20) and Paul Stirling (55) provided a solid 53-run opening stand that came off 92 deliveries.

Google published a blog post yesterday announcing the Chromebook Tab 10. The device measures 172.2×238.2×9.98 mm and it weighs just 550 grams. On the back, there is a 5MP camera and the front houses a 2MP camera.

The Tab 10 also comes with a Wacom EMR stylus which is embedded in the chassis dock and doesn't require a battery or charging. The stylus also doesn't need charging or pairing. The tablet packs a 34Wh battery that is claimed to provide up to 9 hours of battery life.

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 arrives the day before Apple is reportedly planning to refresh its iPad line-up at an education-themed event. Many classroom computers run on Chrome OS since these devices tend to be more affordable. The Chrome Education license facilitates updates, app configuration, as well as the managing of extensions and policies for administrators. Google's solution seems to be running Android apps on Chrome OS, but it's taken a long time to get to this point. Even if a device is lost, stolen or damaged, students won't lose their information.

Instead, Kyle Stanley made an 8-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to win, and then he beat Casey on the second hole of a playoff. Watson def. (23) Branden Grace, 5 and 3: Watson was absolutely unstoppable in the biggest rout of the day.

The Chromebook Tab 10 runs on a Rockchip OP1 processor with dual-core Cortex-A72 and quad-core Cortex-A53 processors. This is paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (expandable via microSD). Bluetooth 4.1 and 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi ac is available. Storage wise, 32 GB + a micro SD card slot will probably do the trick. Since this tablet is designed for education, it will have full support for Google Classroom and Chrome Education license, both of which are sold separately, as pointed out by Android Central.

Chrome OS on tablets is now a real thing, not just a side-story in a convertible novel.
