World's cheapest tablet launched
http://www.downes.ca/post/56392 It's a bit slower, its battery life is shorter, and the screen isn't as large, but when you compare the 2250 Rupee ($45 or so) tablet with iPads costing more than ten times as much, it comes out as a fantastic bargain. Even more importantly, it heralds the dawn of computer access for a generation of students in India, which I can quite confidently predict will result in an educational renaissance in that country a decade from now. Yes - it will take some time, so ignore the surveys next year and the year after. Announced Datawind, whose headquarters are based in Montreal, Canada, but which the Times of India says is British-based, but which other sources note developed the tablet in India and Canada. It is manufactured in India. Jim Shimabukuro writes, "Students and teachers, schools and colleges will be the direct beneficiaries of this Aakash revolution that will open the web to those who cannot afford the latest technology, making it possible for them to access the open learning resources on the web as well as the latest online pedagogy. For areas where Wi-Fi is lacking, the Aakash will be an incentive to improve infrastructure."
