The tablets will come pre-loaded with Google Apps for Education and basic encyclopedia apps. Battery life is quoted as being somewhere in the eight hour range, and is swappable, unlike most other tablets on the market.

 

The tablet is being made available through AT&T and will run schools a mere $299 each for a 3G model and $349 for 4G. Each tablet will carry a $99 annual data subscription. That may sound like a lot, but the real savings is the ability to load digital text books and forever forget the heavy dead tree based books of the past.
