The selection of tablets in education has been narrow, especially for teachers that want support after the hardware is on their doorstep. Sony figures that it can widen the field through its K-12 Education Initiative. The effort gives schools a discount on the Xperia Tablet S, but that’s just the start: they have access to Education Ambassador, an online resource for incorporating Android tablets into the classroom, as well as 50GB of free Box storage and a year’s worth of Kaspersky security services. Sony is already taking orders for schools waiting to hop onboard; if they’re willing to try a company that’s relatively untested in education, they may get a better deal than they expect.
