Malaysia's Youth To Soon See Their Own 7" 1Mpad Android Tablet
The country is delivering this with one thing in mind: educating its youth. It's a great idea, and some 5,000 of the units are now being offered up. At first, end users outside of the education sector can pay around $315 for one, but there are over 1 million students that are hoping to see them in the classroom soon. According to the plan, they'll be offered to students at a discounted rate, enabling students to get a discount when purchased via their student card. It'll ship with 3G broadband, a Messenger application and a software suite that's to be determined.
With the XOPC and this, we sure hope we're closing in on the era where all students can at least have hope to getting their hands on technology at an early age.
