Bigger can be Better
If tiny 8- or 10-inch slates aren’t big enough for your classroom, think big with Samsung’s Galaxy NotePRO tablet. It has a 12.2-inch screen that can show ultra-high resolution 2,560 by 1,600 images. It’s powered by Samsung’s 1.9GHz quad-core processor and includes 3GB of RAM as well as either 32- or 64GB of storage space. It is the rare tablet that comes with a pressure-sensitive stylus, which can help it fit into a variety of school roles, from sketching maps or molecular diagrams to art instruction. Even with this big screen, the WiFi-based Galaxy NotePRO weighs in at about 1.6 pounds.
