TabPilot Intros Sub-$300 Android Tablet for Broadcasting to Classroom Projectors

The Breea Freedom HD tablet

TabPilot has launched a new series of tablets designed for classroom presentations. The new Breea Freedom HD tablet, which is being shown at this week's FETC conference, taking place in Orlando, FL, is designed to broadcast tablet content onto projectors and comes with classroom management software pre-loaded.

The tablet itself, which is priced at $295, offers a 9.7-inch screen (2,048 x 1,536 resolution) and sports a dual-core Cortex A9 processor. It comes equipped with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. It also includes:

  • Dual cameras;
  • An SD card slot for storage expansion;
  • HD video out port;
  • Microphone and speaker, plus a headphone jack;
  • A seven-hour battery life;
  • Optional case for attaching a Bluetooth keyboard magnetically; and
  • Optional leather-wrapped bezel for impact protection.

The tablet also comes with TabPilot Tablet Manager, a cloud-based classroom management tool that lets teachers lock down students' devices, view students' screens and distribute content and apps to the class.

The units are designed to work with the Breea Freedom Receiver, a $100 device that allows the tablets to broadcast their screens to a selected device without the need for cables.

A separate stand is also available that turns the device into a wireless document camera.

The Breea Freedom HD tablet is being demonstrated this week at the FETC conference in booth 751. Additional details can be found at breeatablets.com.
