The tablet market is getting more crowded each and every day. iPad may be still the king of the tablet market. But Android tablets have a bright future too. Everyday, a new Android device pops out to put more pressure on Apple’s dominance of this market. Kineo’s tablet for schools does run Android too. But it is a niche device developed for schools and has software that facilitates better learning for students.
The device has a selection of learning tools but allows schools to determine which sites/services can be accessed on it. The device is teacher friendly too, giving them the chance to keep track of students’ performances.
Kineo is an education-only tablet built for the ‘mission-critical’ environment in schools… A teacher cannot worry about bandwidth issues, screen freezes or free reign of the Internet. We have 16 years of experience in manufacturing handhelds and training teachers how to use standards-based curriculum. We’ve poured all of that experience into developing Kineo and GlobalSYNC,
said Jeff Cameron, president of Brainchild. Brainchild has sold its first batch of Kineo tablets. Niche tablets such as this do have a place. Not everyone is going to need an iPad or Xoom. Companies such as Brainchild will have to continuously innovate to bring a better learning experience to students though.
