Intel unveiled a new iteration of its Classmate Tablet PC today, featuring a touch screen mode, a new wedge design, and motion-sensing internal hardware. Intel’s press release says:
“Our ethnographic research has shown us that students responded well to tablet and touch screen technology,” Ibrahim added. “The creativity, interactivity and user-friendliness of the new design will enhance the learning experiences for these children. This is important for both emerging and mature markets where technology is increasing being seen as a key tool in encouraging learning and facilitating teaching.”

Watch the Classmate PC video after the jump.

Intel Classmate 8.9″ Tablet PC features/specifications:
The touch-enabled Classmate will feature an 8.9″ screen with a built-in webcam that can swivel 180 degrees. It will also feature the latest Atom processor from Intel, allowing the Classmates to see a 50% performance increase over previous generations with Celeron M processors and up to 6.5 hours of battery life (the Celeron model is being phased out across the board as supplies of Atom processors increase). It also features palm-reject, so that kids can write and draw naturally with their palms resting on the screen.

According to Christopher Dawson's technology blog, the tablet-enabled Classmates will be available at the end of the year.
