Splashtop launches Whiteboard for Android

Splashtop Inc today announced the launch of Splashtop Whiteboard for Android, which will be demonstrated for the first time at the Computer Using Educators’ Conference (CUE), March 15-17 in Palm Springs, Calif.

Splashtop Whiteboard turns tablets into interactive whiteboards. Through the Splashtop Remote Desktop, users can create their own personal cloud to access files, applications, and more.

Using Splashtop Whiteboard, both teachers and students can connect to a computer over Wi-Fi from their tablet to view Flash media, control educational apps, and annotate lessons.

“We listened to our customers and we delivered. Since the launch of Whiteboard, teachers have been clamoring for Whiteboard for Android,” Splashtop CEO Mark Lee said in a press release. “Now teachers and students can enjoy the best interactive whiteboard app solution streamed to their favorite Android tablet at a fraction of the cost of traditional interactive whiteboard products.”

“We are very excited that Splashtop has delivered an interactive whiteboard to enable students and teachers to leverage the power of writing and annotation with our Android ThinkPad Tablet and its digital stylus,” Lenovo education solutions manager Sam Morris said.

CUE attendees can see a demonstration of Whiteboard for Android and iPad at the Splashtop Booth (#342). Each attendee who buys the app during the show will receive a free stylus.

Not going to CUE this year? For a limited time, Splashtop Whiteboard can be downloaded from Google Play for $9.99 — 50-percent off the regular price of $19.99.
