Acer has showcased its Tablet PC to the UAE’s Ministry of Higher Education. Executives from Acer, Intel and Microsoft met with H.H. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Higher Education (MOHE), at his Abu Dhabi office to demonstrate Acer’s TravelMate C100 machine.

The MOHE, which has been the driving force behind the widespread deployment of notebooks and wireless local area networks at the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) and Zayed University, is assessing how the Tablet PC could be used in higher education.

“[The Tablet PC] will greatly benefit the students of the HCT and emphasises the HCT’s commitment to work closely with the corporate world wide in order to provide our students with the best possible international most up to date technology available as we are training the senior international managers of the future,” says Dr Tayeb Kamali, HCT vice chancellor.

Strong partnerships with private sector companies have already played an important role in HCT's vocational training programmes, adds Dr. Kamali.

No firm timetable for the deployment of the Acer’s Tablet PC has yet been announced.
