Article via Tab Times

Fujitsu has today revealed that Charlottesville City Schools, a government branch responsible for nine schools in Charlottesville, Virginia, is completing the rollout of over 2,000 Stylistic Q550 tablets to local teachers and students.

The Japanese electronics manufacturer says that every student in grades six through to 12 will be using the Windows 7 tablet for accessing digital textbooks and even videoconferencing.

“We scanned the ocean of options — iPad, Droid, HP, Windows, Apple, even thin client,” said Dean Jadlowski, director of technology at Charlottesville City Schools. “Initially we were excited by the iPad, but the integrity of the glass and limited ability to manage security were an issue. The Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 tablet has the durability required to survive in a backpack, offers a fully functioning Windows operating system essential for state standardized online testing, and allows us to use enterprise tools to maintain security and permissions.”
