DENVER--()--ARCHOS, a major player in the Android tablet market, is taking advantage of its innovative tablet technology, customization capabilities and aggressive prices to target the education market and offer a full tablet solution to enhance the way schools operate, teachers teach and students learn.
“By partnering with ARCHOS, schools and education professionals are able to offer a complete and affordable digital solution without compromising on technology and quality.”
“As the tablet market continues to grow and find its identity we have started to target specialized sectors that can benefit from our innovation and are expected to fuel growth. Education is at the top of the list. Our tablet’s are ideal across all sectors of education” said Henri Crohas, CEO of ARCHOS. “By partnering with ARCHOS, schools and education professionals are able to offer a complete and affordable digital solution without compromising on technology and quality.”
ARCHOS Tablets are perfectly designed to fit school, teacher and students’ needs
ARCHOS tablets are designed with a teacher or a student lifestyle in mind: they’re thin, lightweight, and have been optimized to maximize battery life, making them much more portable than a laptop or netbook.
In addition to the thousands of apps available on Appslib, they’re also fully compatible with online teaching and learning platforms, such as Smartboard. Thanks to the apps, tablets are capable of offering enhanced ebooks featuring images, video and audio. By allowing students to highlight text, take notes in the margin and access a dictionary directly within the book itself, tablets are optimizing a student’s learning.
Finally, ARCHOS’ broad range of tablets and prices as well as ARCHOS’ customization and tech support capabilities allow each school or school distributor to create a full custom built product including solutions for schools to operate better, teachers to access content or share best practices and students to access interactive courses.
Education Vertical offers high potential market
Driven by unprecedented success, the tablet market continues to grow and is predicted to reach 55 million units (IDC) in 2011 and more than 80 million in 2012 (IDC).
“In mid 2011, we started seeing strong interest from emerging countries such as Brazil, Puerto Rico, and Argentina to provide a technology solution for their education markets,” Crohas added.
