ELMO USA

ELMO Wireless Tablet, $399

 

ELMO, known for its visual presenters and surveillance cameras, is expanding into other technologies, as represented by this new wireless slate/tablet, designed for use with interactive whiteboards and document cameras. The device enables teachers or students to draw, annotate or manipulate images, or run applications from around the classroom with a stylus pen, which has different user modes for operating a document camera, whiteboard or a PC. ELMO's Image Mate Accent software is included, which offers document camera presentation tools for annotating over images, as well as recording video and audio. The tablet has a wireless range of 50 feet and lasts up to 18 hours on a single charge. www.elmousa.com

HEWLETT-PACKARD

4320t, Starts at $525

 

Hewlett-Packard continues its drive into virtualization with this new model, a mobile thin client. Much like a streamlined desktop thin client, the 4320t is an inexpensive subcompact laptop that lacks high-end processing power or expansive onboard data storage because it is intended to be essentially a terminal connected to a server, where most applications and data are stored. This server-based computing requires less maintenance and is more secure, as centralized storage reduces the risk of lost or stolen data. Features of the 4320t include a 13.3-inch LED backlit screen, an Intel Celeron processor, up to 4GB of RAM, a 6- or 9-cell battery, and either a 2GB or 4GB solid-state hard drive for fast startup and shutdown times. www.hp.com
