Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) announced that its three clients rolled over the products based on its new education-specific product reference design this week at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2014 Conference in Atlanta. Three products launched are Panasonic 3E, the CTL Education Chromebook and the M&A Education Chromebook.
“These new reference designs demonstrate the diversity of Intel portfolio of education solutions,” said John Galvin, vice president of the Sales and Marketing Group and general manager of Intel Education.
Making devices more efficient
Galvin added that Intel has ignored the one-size approach to transform education and worked towards offering a range of different tools like devices, software, content and professional development services to offer right solution to students for success.
Intel said that the reference designs are the products of years of experience in the student learning, providing customers with shorter development time, customization capabilities and the latest technologies, features and software.
Intel has powered these Chromebooks with its chips for a better experience, extended battery life for full day of activity and capability to perform multi-task. It can, also, open multiple tabs and offer offline learning. Intel is working towards the Chrome ecosystem to offer the better experience in a Chrome browser.
