We have Samsung's Reading, Game, Video, Social and Music Hubs, and now the Koreans add the Learning Hub
to the growing list of cloud and social services that come preinstalled on its smartphones and tablets. It shouldn't be compared with iTunes U in terms of reach, but there are some functionality parallels indeed.
At launch, the Learning Hub will offer about 6,000 textbooks and videos from 30 content publishers, as well as multimedia tools for teaching and note taking. Some of this content will be free of charge, and for some of the lectures and textbooks you will have to pay.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
and 8.9 LTE
will be the slates where it appears first, and we took the Learning Hub for a spin at the MWC expo, asking a Samsung rep to explain and demonstrate for us.
