La Salle Greenhills offers Galaxy Tab 8.9 to students
We wrote about the plan of De La Salle to offer Samsung Galaxy Tabs to their students last July (as per our discussion with local reps of Sybase). Today, Samsung made it official and reveals La Salle Greenhills will provide their students with Galaxy Tab 8.9.
La Salle Green Hills plans to deploy initial 500 of the new Galaxy Tab 8.9 devices to its honors class students. The pilot phase of the project will commence with the start of the second trimester of the 2011-12 school year in September this year. La Salle Green Hills expects to roll out the mobile tablet learning experience school wide in the new school year of 2012-13. This will cover all 5,000 students of the campus.
Sybase will be responsible for management and deployment of applications over-the-air and secure curriculum materials for the school administration.
Back in June, Meridian College also announced they are offering Apple iPad 2 to all their incoming college freshmen students.
