Classpad tablet launched for education sector

There is a new tablet in town for the education sector, the Classpad, developed by Classteacher Learning Systems as a "new generation tablet for personalized and interactive teaching & learning." The tablet will be available in both OTPC (One-Tablet-Per-Child) and trolley variants, for multiple student usage. The Classpad apparently features a 1.3GHz processor, and 4GB of built-in storage.

Comparisons to the Aakash are inevitable, especially as the Classpad is being marketed as an educational tablet. We’ve also seen a presentation that favourably compares it to “popular tablet recently launched”, with a better display and performance, capacitive multi-touch, integrated speaker, protective casing, and, longer battery life. Of course, at Rs. 7,500 for the base model, the price difference is just as striking.

For now, the details in the press release and all over the web are contradictory, and we’ve contacted the company for clarification. We’ll update you as soon as we hear back from them, with detailed differences between variants, and re-confirmed specifications.

In the meanwhile, what is known is that the Classpad (OTPC version) will come in three variants – Classpad 7, Classpad 8, and Classpad 10 – which will be priced between Rs. 7,500 and Rs. 14,500. Specs of what we presume to be the 10-inch Classpad 10 were also sent across to us, and can be seen below:
