We don't envy schools that have to go tablet shopping; many slates can't survive roughhousing by playful kids, let alone impart some wisdom. Teachers will be glad to hear, then, that Samsung has fulfilled its promise of a classroom-ready tablet by releasing the Galaxy Tab 4 Education in the US. Hardware-wise, it boils down to a Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 with a rugged case -- nothing truly special, but enough to survive a fall from a desk. The real highlight may be the software, which includes educational apps, books and videos alongside easy access to Google Play for Education. Samsung's smarter Galaxy Tab carries just a slight premium at $370, although schools will want to tack on another $30 if they want Google Play's help with their lessons.
