Intel launches $200 ‘studybook’

Intel will sell a $200 “studybook” computer, reports Ed Week. The 7-inch tablet will be encased in rugged plastic for durability.

The studybook comes with front and rear cameras (which can be turned into microscopes for science experiments with a special lens), a microphone, and an LCD touch screen. The tablet is designed to withstand falls from student desks and is water and dust resistant.

Can it compete with the iPad? And the smart phone?

  1. Sounds like it’s competing with the Kindle Fire more than the iPad.

  2. Agreed, at $200 its the same price as the Kindle Fire, but the camera feature sounds neat. I just wonder how much the special lens add-on is.
