Has it been a while since you last took a look at OverDrive’s Test Drive program? If so, then it might be worth taking another look. We’ve been updating the website, adding new devices and archiving ones that are hard to find.
For those of you that may be unfamiliar (or didn’t read Justin’s post from the 10th), Test Drive is a program for libraries and schools that provides resources for device lending. If you follow the guidelines for our Test Drive devices, you can safely lend tablets that your patrons and students can use to borrow and enjoy titles from your OverDrive digital collection.
We carefully test and review each gadget on our list to make sure it’s of good quality and makes sense as a lendable device.
Here are the newest Test Drive Approved devices:
- Apple iPad (updated to support the iPad 2 up through the iPad Air as well as the iPod touch)
- Google Nexus 7 (covers both the 2012 model and 2013 model)
- Kobo Arc
- Lenovo Yoga Tablets (both the 8 and 10)
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 3
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids
- Tegra Note 7 (we tested the HP Slate 7 Extreme version)
I’ll be posting a review of the Tegra Note 7 (one of my favorites out of the new devices) soon, so be on the lookout.
On top of the new tablets, we’re working on making the Test Drive website better and easier to navigate, so please keep checking back for updates. In the meantime, if you have questions or feedback about the program, post in the comments below.
