OLPC project, that is meant to bridge the digital divide - that gulf that separates the technological wealthy and the electronically disenfranchised poor. It will sell in India for $50 and elsewhere for $60. Many in the West may ask why such a poor country like India would be interested in computers for their citizenry when there are pressing problems such as starvation and a lack of medical care. Well, those are two really good reasons. Unlike the West, these tablets are not designed just to consume videos, music and status updates on Facebook. With a wifi network across India, users will be able to access agricultural data to help them grow crops, or provide health care workers access to medical consultations with experts from the urban centers. India's National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology plans to link 25,000 colleges and 400 universities on the subcontinent in their e-learning program using the Aakash. India will subsidize half the cost of the tablet for it's students. The tablet is meant to support video and web conferencing. It is ironic how much poverty can drive innovation. From what I have read, these tablets are designed for durability and harsh conditions; perfect for Junior High in the West!
