Several users can share the same tablet, opening individual user sessions for access to their personal files. Plus, thanks to Google Play, users are kept entertained with access to millions of applications developed for Android. In the future, the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 will also support augmented reality thanks to the Expeditions AR application, designed to project 3D objects into classrooms.

The Acer Chromebook Tab 10 (D651N) tablet will be available in Europe in May 2018 priced from €329. News of the Chrome OS tablet comes just a few hours before Apple's education-themed conference, during which the Cupertino tech firm could present one or several new iPad tablets.

The "Chromebook" concept dates back to 2011. Since then, several manufacturers -- including Acer -- have joined forces with Google to build low-cost PCs, primarily aimed at students, running the Chrome OS operating system. These devices, which are especially popular in the USA, are now branching out into tablet form. It remains to be seen whether the education sector succumbs to their charm.
