Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today at FETC 2014 announced plans to launch a new Galaxy Tab developed for education, which will be available for K-12 school deployments for the 2014-2015 academic year. Launching as part of the Google Play for Education program, the classroom-ready, 10.1-inch tablet will offer simple set up and device management, access to curated educational content, and other features to support dynamic, digital teaching and learning.
