ROUND ROCK, Texas -- May 7, 2013

Dell announced today that San Antonio Independent School District has deployed
Dell Latitude 10 tablets running Microsoft Windows 8 across 33 of its 90
campus libraries in the first phase of the district’s literacy initiative to
support students to explore learning outside the classroom and connect to Big
Universe, an integrated literacy platform. The district is now able to offer
the 22,000 students on those campuses a multi-touch, dynamic learning
experience that motivates them to increase their reading time and experience.

The tablet has a snap feature that runs applications side-by-side enabling
students to multi-task. As a student is reading on the Dell Latitude 10
tablet, they are able to take notes simultaneously on the tablet to improve
productivity and help increase engagement with the reading material. The Dell
Latitude 10 enables students to produce content as readily as they consume it.

“The Dell Latitude 10 tablets give our students a device for self-directed
learning and literacy that enables them to go beyond the text and pursue their
own interests and intellectual curiosities,” said Marcos Zorola, Chief
Information Officer, San Antonio Independent School District. “Dell’s solution
is the best for our school district’s libraries because they not only deliver
a great user experience, but the tablets are compatible with the library
infrastructure simplifying their deployment and management.”

Preferred by educators, the Dell Latitude 10 is steadily deployed by schools
around the world because of its affordability, accessibility, manageability
and personalized learning features. Windows 8 is Microsoft’s new operating
system helping schools modernize by providing tools for better creation,
consumption and collaboration to meet new education standards and the move to
digital learning. According to a Harris Interactive online survey commissioned
by Dell and Intel, 59 percent of school system IT decision makers and
administrators say choosing devices that integrate with their existing IT
infrastructure and that can be managed by existing tools is the best way to
minimize total cost of ownership for tablets. The Dell Latitude 10 essentials
configuration has been proven in a study by Principled Technologies to require
52 percent less time to manage and doubles the number of devices a single IT
staff member can manage.
